With the holidays behind us, it's time to think about eating healthier. It's hard to cut back on sweets and fat when it's been a big part of your life for the past two month. So, my suggestion is to make simple changes.
Consider poaching or steaming your meat and go for lean cuts like chicken, fish or ground turkey. Both cooking methods are lo cal options that also pack a lot of flavor if you do it right. Any cooking website can walk you through the techniques step by step.
Use an abundance of herbs and spices in your cooking. This is also a great way to add flavor without the calories.
Also, remember to bake when you can instead of fry.
Here are a few dinner combinations that are both healthful and tasty:
Steamed chicken and spring veggies with baked potatoes
Turkey Meatballs and gravy over mashed potatoes with steamed broccoli
Veggie stir fry with brown rice
Whole wheat pasta and grilled chicken with chopped tomato and basil
