    My husband is a meat and potatoes guy and I’m more of a healthy, vegetables person so I compromise in my cooking. We love salmon or chicken packets. You just put salmon or chicken in foil, put any spices you want in there with a little olive oil, and add any vegetable you want. Bake for 30 minutes and you’ve got a healthy, yummy, versatile meal!

    Lynda Clark says:

    One of our favorite healthy meals is to take a variety of fresh veggies (whatever’s in the fridge) and do a stir-fry, using cooking spray and a touch of sesame oil and reduced sodium soy sauce for flavor and then add either a little chicken breast or tofu for protein and serve it with steamed brown rice.

    Alicia says:

    I SO need this cookbook! Many of our dinners aren’t as healthy as they should be. One of our favorite healthy meals is taking what we used to eat – a steak & potato with cooked veggies, and changing it to a really nice raw spinach & veggie salad with strips of steak and homemade lowfat dressing. So where we used to eat a steak each, we now use one steak to make 3 yummy salads.
