Tasty, Healthy Meal Ideas

ideas

 

As you all know by now, I am the biggest advocate of adding variety to the “diet.” No one wants to eat the same boring foods over and over and over again. I REFUSE to do that. Enjoying what we are eating and achieving the results we desire can certainly go hand-in-hand.

Check out some fresh ideas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner:

Breakfast:

1 Whole Wheat English Muffin topped with:

Cheese (I used Low Fat Mozzarella), Egg Whites, 1 Whole Egg, Low Fat Turkey Pepperoni, Salt,Pepper, Ketchup

Lunch:

Wrap of choice

Egg Whites

Tuna Salad

Chopped Celery

Sauce of Choice (I used a little bit of BBQ)

Dinner:

Whole Wheat Bread

Lean Beef Patty

Guacamole (I used Wholly brand)

Butternut Squash Tots (Bake cubed squash at 350 for about 1 hour or until crispy.  I add splenda (or stevia), salt, and cinnamon for that sweet and salty taste).

ENJOY!

 

Speaking Out Against the Ridiculous Messages Thrown Out There in the Fitness Industry

No rocket science. Simple steps to get healthy.

I want to clarify, that fiber is not a nutrient.  After re-watching the video, I made it seem as if it were.

My suggestion would be to get in AT THE VERY LEAST 20g of fiber/day and for most people, more.  Fiber is very helpful for bowel movement, digestion, lowering cholesterol, and blood sugar control, amongst many other things.

Healthy, Easy Dinner

If I am being quite honest, I usually don’t make many dinners worth posting. I figured I would take a shot of dinner last night, just to give you a bit of an idea of how easy a healthy (and tasty dinner) can be!

Shredded Grilled Chicken: As you saw from my post earlier this week, I already had all my chicken cooked on Sunday. I just threw the chicken into the oven to heat it up. Of course, I added a bunch of dipping sauces! No one likes plain!

1/2 Sweet Potato: Baking a sweet potato in the oven brings out the sweetness of the potato. When cooked in the microwave, you don’t quite get that same taste. However, baking a sweet potato in the oven takes forever. First, I poke holes in the potato and heat in the microwave for a few minutes. Then, I wrap the potato with tin foil and throw in the oven at 450. Putting the potato in the microwave first, cuts down on baking time in the oven. I top it with splenda (or stevia) and cinnamon.

Cole Slaw: I used pre-made cole slaw mix and added the following (sorry, no exact measurements): lemon juice, sugar free syrup (can sub honey), plain/fat free greek yogurt, dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, splenda, salt, pepper.

Broccoli Salad: 3.5-4 cups broccoli, 4-6 Tbs plain/fat free greek yogurt, 3 strips cooked turkey bacon, fat free feta, 3 Tbs apple cider vinegar, splenda, salt, pepper. This makes 3-4 servings worth.

Enjoy!
