    I love to make stir-fry. It is a one pot dinner and I can control everything that goes in. I like it low-sodium and tons of fresh veggies and I change up the protein so it doesn’t feel like the same thing over and over.

    At this time of year when the garden is full of wonderful vegetables, I love to make a salad consisting of fresh chopped veggies, a little Italian seasoning, and olive oil. Grilled veggie sandwiches are also really good!

    I like to splurge (a little-not too much) on the main dish but I always serve fresh vegetables and fruit to fill up the rest of the plate 🙂 But I really love finding new healthy recipes.

    My favorite healthy meal is a baked potato and salad. When I do these for dinner I make sure there is loads of healthy toppings and minimize the cheese and butter which is what they’re usually topped with.

    My favorite healthy meal to prepare is black bean veggie burgers. I’ve tried many frozen black bean burgers and never been impressed, but we have this recipe that just thinking about it makes my mouth water. I can’t believe something so good for you could be so delicious!
