    I love finding comfort food recipes that are healthier. Most recently, found a recipe for Deep Dish pizza that was waaaay healthier than what you find in the restaurant. And it was delicious!

    I love to make a seared tilapia with pea puree and a lemon brodetto (sort of like a lemon flavored broth). It’s a recipe originated by Giada DeLaurentis. It’s light and delicious.

    I adore classic Mac and cheese that’s healthified with butternut purée and goat cheese!

    We like to do fancy salads. We will pull chicken, cut up apples, strawberries, red onions, a dash of sunflower seeds and throw it all in a bowl and mix up with a bit of balsamic vinegar or raspberry vinegar. Then, we will lay a couple of spoonfulls on top of a bed of romaine lettuce. That way we don’t get a ton of dressing, but still very flavorful and yummy!

    I love to make Chicken Parmesan for the family. I pound some chicken breasts, rub a little mayo & sour cream on the breasts so the panko bread crumbs have something to stick to and it keeps the chicken breasts moist. Cook at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Then I pour a little tomato sauce on top with shredded whole milk mozzarella or chihuahua cheese on top. Broil for a minute or two until cheese gets brown bubbles.

    My family loves marinated grilled chicken. Very simple. I also grill up lots of veggies…onions, peppers, asparagus, etc. I sprinkle with lemon pepper and goat cheese when it is finished! Easy and yummy!

    One of my favorite meals to make is breaded chicken, tri-color pasta with some oil and basil, and steamed broccoli. It’s quick and simple, and the breading on the chicken makes it really yummy. For the breading I do something like breadcrumbs, ground flaxseed, wheat germ, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

    I think my all time favorite healthy meal would be a recipe from the Eat Shrink and Be Merry Cookbook called “Grill of my Dreams” – a marinated, then grilled pork tenderloin with grilled veggies. So good.

    Kabobs. They are perfect because everyone can have just that combination of meat, veggies or fruit they like AND it gets us all outside while they are grilling up!!

    Amber O. says:

    Our 18 month old seems to have put herself on an all carb diet, so I have to be creative to get her to eat vegetables and protein. She loves my easy lasagna-style pasta. I use whole wheat penne, organic tomato sauce with pureed sweet potatoes and carrots mixed in. For the cheese, I use low fat cottage cheese and shredded mozzarella. Mix in some parsley, a non-gmo free range egg and bake, and you have toddler -friendly healthy meal!

    Manette Gutterman says:

    My kids are big fans of brown rice and black beans. We also love chicken & corn on the grill with broccoli. They’re very picky eaters but these are the meals that satisfy everyone in my family.
