    One of my favorite ‘healthy meals’ would be sauteed veggies(asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, carmelized onions and peppers) with sauteed seasoned chicken. No carbs needed! Just some garlic and olive oil along with your favorite seasonings.

    Once I week I try to make our evening meal meatless. My favorite is so easy, basically whole wheat pasta, broccoli and a can of diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil topped off with parm and provolone cheese. Yummy. The first time I made it they didn’t notice that it didn’t have meat! ๐Ÿ™‚

    our favorite go-to & healthy meal: I saute our favorite in season veggies in some olive oil with sea salt/fresh pepper & add them to plain pasta. The juice from tomatoes is usually enough for us, but you can put a little olive oil/butter on the noodles first. Topped with fresh parm – yum!
