I'm kind of a fussy eater, which I'm desperately trying to change - but one thing I can't change is my dislike of food that's too spicy (oh and curry!!). Anything shellfish wouldn't be a hit here either sorry.
Also at the moment (probably due to pregnancy) I have gestational diabetes so fairly low carbs and sugar would be good.
So after all that - can anyone help with some ideas?
Had a long post, but my puter froze, & lost it.
There are prob some low carb products out there from tortillas to pasta.
I'm a fan of salads, fresh fruit & vegetables. Take a walk through the produce section in your local market for some inspiration.
I made a grilled chicken salad with fresh strawberries, avocado, mixed greens, feta & walnuts.
Re salads, so many ways to go - cobb, caesar (w/ chicken), nicoise w/ salmon or tuna, chopped, chef's.
Eggpant parm, rollatini, eggplant balls (instead of meat balls)
Ground Turkey meatballs
tuna or salmon croquettes/cakes/patties
Chicken - paillard, francaise, milanaise, Spatchcocked, rollatin, etc.
Fish tacos w/ avocado, diced fresh tomatoes, & coleslaw.
Recently there were discussions/recipes for spaghetti squash, zuchinni, summer squash.
Take a look through the Vegetable, chicken, grilling catagories here.
