Snack: Hummus and Carrots 

Lunch: Broiled Tilapia Parmesan 

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
  • 2 pounds tilapia fillets 


  1. Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
