Healthy eating

I believe everything Geraldine has written and to go one step further why not use a smaller plate. I have cut meat consumption by half (and do not miss the other half!) do not use any animal fats at all (trim it from all meat etc). Fresh veg & fruits are definitely best (grow my own) and more flavoursome even without salt. My 'roasts' are steamed rather than dry roasted and take half the cooking time then placed under the grill to get that roasted look. :) I have been told I am a very 'clean cook' but try and be creative. Have you ever tried lightly grilled very thin cross cut liver on grilled apple rings - makes a nice entree and also makes nice finger food for predinner drinks!!

YUM - the liver sounds great instantkiwi. I discovered steaming meats when we were without power a few years ago due to an ice storm. I steamed a pork tenderloin and it was so moist. Now I do it that way all the time. If I do want that "charcoal" flavor I will just put some marks on it on the grill.

Smaller plates is definately a good idea and I believe in "dining". I can dine on a bowl of cereal. I savor every single bite of no matter what I'm eating. A friend and I go out to lunch and halfway through my first half of sandwich she is completely done. But I don't eat the other half. I take it home and either eat it for dinner or it's a snack for son. I just need to get my buns walking and exercising a bit.

Why cant brocilie taste like frenchfries?

I really really like red meat, Thats bad I know but its the truth. I also like to smoke, If the surgen general said smoking was good for you I would have two packs a day.as it is I have smoked on and off from my teens. I have not had one in about 30 days now and the craving for rich foods and strong drinks are bad. anyway-I had chicken fajitias( my profile says I cant spell) cooked in olive oil last night. no cheese just lots of peppers and onions. The new ferret gave them two thumbs up.All I want to do is deep fry a rib-eye steak and put three scoops of ben and jerrys on top of it and wash it down with some 1800gold...Is that so bad????
Tonight....grilled chicken ceaser salad and two big glasses of water. Oh well , My will is good
