one step towards healthy

One of the goals that I have always had and pretty well kept is being a healthy eater. I am not one who believes in diets, but I do believe in healthy eating and healthy portions. this doesn’t mean that I don’t scarf down a few slices of Pizza pie every now and then. (come on I’m human lol) but I don’t make foods like pasta and pizza and processed foods a daily requirement.

it is very easy to fall victim to allure of fast food. it’s convenient and easy to obtain. but it’s not the wisest choice. growing up I was a light eater, my parents always said I ate like the birds, they were right back then and that truth still stands today.

now that I am a wife and mother I am extra aware of the foods I put not only into my mouth but in the mouths of my family members. I find that in my cooking and food prep I am creating new and interesting yet healthy foods, that are both filing and tasty.

so here are just a few of the newest recipes I have created over the last few months. feel free to try them and post your opinions  on how you like them.

Recipe one: Breakfast

4 Egg whites

1/2 cup of shredded kerry gold Irish aged cheddar

4 mushrooms sliced

1/2 cup of spinach

half sprig of rosemary

with a side of Turkey Bacon. One glass of Juice(your choice) and a cup of coffee.

This breakfast is not only nutritious but bold in flavor and super healthy for you. it’s one of my personal favorites for the morning.

Snack:

Almonds or Trail mix

I love the chili and lime flavored almonds from Blue Diamond. trail mix is also a good snack. this way you get your daily serving of nuts. (if your allergic to nuts I would suggest a fruit cup with some granola clusters).

Lunch:

Mixed berries and spinach with home made sweet dressing

1 cup of mixed berries

2 cups spinach

Dressing:

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1/3 cup Olive oil

1/4 cup poppi seeds

1/4 cup sesame seeds

mix the ingredients for the dressing together well and pour over salad.

enjoy!

Snack:

plain greek yogurt

fresh coconut flakes

fresh pineapple

honey

mix together and enjoy. this snack is my #1 favorite of my day.

Dinner:

med- rare eye round steak with spinach leaf, beet hummus, sliced grape tomato topping

with a side of mashed sweet potatoes(put boiled sweet potatoes in bowl beat in half stick of butter, half cup sugar, 2tbs cinnamon, 1tbs nutmeg)

honeyed asparagus(put asparagus in killet add half cup of water two tbs of butter and drizzle honey on top)

the sweet potatoes I use as my dessert for the meal. and it always makes my family happy when I make this with our meals.

those are some of my favorite healthy and filling recipes for one day out of my week. try it out, let me know what you think. and if you have any healthy recipes for meals made at home, feel free to share them. I would enjoy trying one of your favorite things.
