    I like to make burritos. I use whole wheat wraps, grilled lean steak, fresh made salsa and lots of cilantro. We usually have some black beans on the side. Healthy, low calorie and low fat and, most importantly, tasty!!

    My favorite way to cook healthy for my little family is to use my garden an d sometimes I venture to my grandfathers fruit garden. My favorite recipe is a zucchini and roasted tomato pasta, and for dessert we have fresh fruit popsicles with fruit chunks in it.

    I LOVE roasting veggies, because they require so little fat to make them delicious. Just a nice sprinkling of Kosher salt and a drizzle of olive oil and they’re delicious!

    This cook book looks great! One of my favorite healthy meals is a grilled piece of lean meat (chicken, pork or beef) with a lot of healthy things on the side…roasted asparagus or broccoli, then a salad and/or some fresh fruit.

    One of my favorite healthy meals is roasting a chicken with salt & pepper, and the best part lime zest! Then I use the juice of the lime on the outside and stuff the cavity with it. Once it is out of the oven I shred it for tacos! Keep the topping light and healthy. So good and always requested from my sweet husband.

    Jamie Webb says:

    My favorite healthy meal to make is any sort of wrap! Usually I use chicken that I bake in the oven, put a little cheese on the whole wheat wrap and put that in the oven as well to make it all nice and melty ๐Ÿ™‚ Throw on some lettuce and whatever other ingredients we are feeling at the time!
