Let's talk healthy

Okay so the holidays are over and most of the baked goods and candy are memories. It's that time of year when we all begin to think about making up for the excesses of the last two months. I'm trying to think of low carb reduced fat meals to serve my family. Now I'm sure that most of you have one or two meals that are very healthy and tasty too. How about sharing them?

These are all delicious and healthy:

VEGETABLE CHILI (I increase the spices, and don't use the suggested sour cream/cheese toppings, etc).

Black Bean Patties with Cilantro and Lime Recipe | MyRecipes.com

CHICKPEA STEW (I increase the onions, garlic, cumin, etc., plus I add some curry powder, chili powder, and ground ginger).

Take leftover LO chicken and LO white and wild rice add some drained green beans and toss with lite salt soy sauce.

Tasty, healthy and easy.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Chicken broth with lots of veggies. Some things I use: diced tomatoes, onions, shredded cabbage, garbanzoes, and a small amount of shredded greens of choice and ground chicken breast. Sometimes I will add a poblano pepper for more zing.

That sounds yummy. It would be a good sub for the pot pie mixture that dh loves. But I'll have to leave out the pepper. Dh can't handle anything even slightly spicy :(

Wink Crayfish Salad!


This is actually the kind of topic I discussed yesterday with my friend...
I tried a wonderful crayfish salad with citronette sauce, whole fresh veg and fish for omega3 fats,

I also want to try it with shrimps, should be lovely!

I'll bet shrimp would be great with that. Loved the Julia video too.

Not so exciting on the cooking front, but I have become very fond of Green Smoothies as my first meal of the day. A typical one for me would be a banana, some blueberries, spinach, some whey protien and some coconut water. If you google some recipes you will find hundreds. It really keeps me going and is great fibre and protein. Not to mention only takes a couple of minutes to blend up and eat. I have been drinking them now for a couple of years and feel great!
