I have said it before and I will say it again.
The best way to eat healthier, lose unwanted weight, and feel better...is to spend more time with your food.
It sounds simple. However, I know this can be difficult for busy people grown accustomed to frozen dinners and take-out. It can be overwhelming and frustrating.
I hear you! But you have to start simple, even if this means you only cook dinner twice a week. And you don't have to be Martha Stewart!! Dinner, afterall, should not be a huge meal. If you eat a decent breakfast and lunch with healthy snacks in-between, you should not be famished come 6:00.
You'll notice my meals aren't restaurant quality, but I don't shoot for that! That's why we enjoy restaurants!
So don't overcomplicate things. Just try to get a veggie, fruit, and carb on your plate. Season it with your favorite seasonings. Heck, throw in a little salt and pepper if that helps. And please, finish with a little piece of chocolate. Everyone will be happier for it.
Steam wax beans, green beans and chopped apples for 10-15 minutes. Dress with butter and salt as desired.
Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds. Drop in about a tbs. butter and 1 tsp brown sugar. Place on baking sheet with water (so they don't dry out) and bake at 400 for an hour or until soft.
Slice in half and boil until tender. Toss with olive oil and chopped dill and bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes.
Combine with a playground workout. Head to the jungle gym, wrap some resistance bands around a tree and work all muscle groups. Finish with 50 walking lunges.
