500-Calorie Dinners Meal Plan: Week 4

Cajun Crab Croquettes

Pictured Recipe: Cajun Crab Croquettes

Sandwiches, crab cakes, salads and more (peach popsicles!) are all part of this week’s plan.

Does the thought of dieting make you crabby? I have just the recipe for you: Cajun Crab Croquettes. (If puns make you crabby, too, I apologize.) These easy, zesty crab cakes are what you get to eat for dinner Monday night on this week’s plan. And that’s not all: you also get to have a spinach salad, Southwestern Calico Corn and a peach popsicle—all that for just 502 calories. This week’s plan of five 500-calorie dinners won’t feel like dieting at all. You’ll be eating well and improving your mood along with your waistline.
