Favorite Dinners that are actually Good For You!


If I could eat anything for dinner, this is what I would eat.  These aren't just healthy meals.  These are my favorite meals that also happen to be healthy.  You definitely need to click into the links to see the pictures to get the full effect.  So yummy!
Day 1: 
Broiled Tilapia Parmesan & Best Ever New Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans .  The sauce on the fish is not low fat or low calorie so I just about half as much on my own piece and it's about perfect.
Day 2: 
Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes.  I throw in some semi sweet chocolate chips and then top them with Vanilla Yogurt and Blackberries if I have them.  Poppy Seed Fruit Salad. I pass on the watermelon and add Kiwi instead, or apples. Just use your favorite fruits.  It's the dressing that makes it delicious.
Day 3:
Sweet Potato Enchiladas & steamed brussel sprouts and yellow squash.
Day 4:  
Black Bean Burgers with Cilantro Lime Mayo.  Or skip the mayo and dress it like you would a regular burger.  Steamed Fresh Veggies like broccoli, cauliflower and carrots mixed.
Day 5:
Cashew Pasta Bake and Spinach Strawberry Salad
I thought it was weird to have nuts with pasta, but this is really good. I double the recipe so I can have it for lunch the next 2 days.
Day 6:
Minestrone Soup and Best Whole Wheat Bread.  I'll add 1/2 cup of alphabet pasta to this soup just because my kids like finding the letters.
Day 7:
Zupas Nuts About Berries Salad.  But please get your dressing on the side.  They give way too much dressing. I use about 1/3 of it.

  2. Amy, Maybe that's why I'm one of your blogs biggest fans. (In a non-Misery sort of way)
