Part B – Below is a sample one-day menu for Mrs. Sprat. Her doctor just told her she is at risk for developing heart disease since her cholesterol is a little high. The doctor has asked her to meet with a registered dietitian to learn more about heart-healthy fats to include and which unhealthy fats to avoid. She hopes to meet with a dietitian next week, but in the meantime, she needs help making these changes.
List five suggestions for Mrs. Sprat’s diet. Provide only changes that address the goals with her meal planning as mentioned above. Tell her which food she should omit and with what you would replace it. You may also change portion sizes. Highlight (yellow only please) or bold the item you are changing and list the original saturated fat and cholesterol of that item. If the original item contains any trans-fat, also list that. Then, write the change next to that and list the saturated fat and cholesterol content after the substitution. You must document the source(s) of your saturated fat and cholesterol data with complete APA citations. None of your changes may increase the saturated fat or cholesterol amounts. All of your changes must decrease either the saturated fat or the cholesterol content of that item by at least 10%. You may make more than five changes, but if you do, you will only receive full credit when all changes correctly match the assigned directions.
