  • Fajitas with chicken, onions and peppers with low-fat sour cream, salsa, and refried beans (a misnomer - they're cooked in water like other beans, then mashed with a little oil)
  • Stir-fries with 2-3 cups veggies to 1 cup diced chicken or lean pork
  • Grilled center-cut pork chops with Dijon mustard/thyme sauce and a salad or grilled asparagus
  • Couscous with diced grilled peppers and onions and champagne vinaigrette
  • All kinds of roasted veggies with a drizzle of lemon juice or balsamic reduction

We use very little butter, and mostly olive and canola oils for cooking and for salad dressings. When I make mashed or twice-baked potatoes, I use just a couple tbsp. of butter and 1/2 cup or so of skim milk, along with cooked bacon bits and minced onions and garlic.

These all sound like awesome things I like to eat, too! Except for me, I would choose sweet potatoes and mixing ground turkey and pork instead of beef (i don't eat beef and try not to eat other proteins than fish unless I have a craving) for the meatballs. I love tomato sauce and actually whip up batches and eat some cold out of the containers in the refrigerator for the next night! That banana bread makes me hungry right now, not going to lie

We shall do efforts to live healthy all the time. It is not difficult to recognise which food gives really essential nutrients. Stop giving your money for this fast food craps. It doesn’t take much to cook a healthy meal. However, if I would like to lose weight I will count on fish, chicken, vegetables, fruits, water.

Hi,

Home made pizza are a good way to control what is on your dish, because if you choose the right ingredient ( a low fat dough) , a low fat tomato sauce, and the right meat , or water tuna, with herbs like basilic, thym, parley. You can have a very delicious meal, low in calories.

Especially if you don't have cheese. It can be delicious without.

Fav Healthy Meals?

Hi

Its good to see a discussion on the fav healthy meals. Different people will have different thoughts of recipes which they like most.

It is best if we try to eat whole unprocessed food where possible, and eat little and often to regulate your energy levels. Go easy on all the refined foods - it's hard - because everywhere you go - most of the food is made from cheap refined flours and base products.

Even if you are consuming a raw food diet, you are still missing key minerals that your body needs to thrive. So its is best to have healthy meal which contains mineral nutrition food.

Thanks..

Fav Healthy Meals?

Hi

In my opinion liquid vitamins are better, just a little cup of juice and all done I have try the Multivitamin and taste great but the choice is all yours.

Vitamins is something people been using for a while and it is more common this days. People take liquid nutrient food to supplement the meals the eat and get the vitamins and mineral they need feel healthy and feel full of energy.

Thanks..
