My husband and own a Health & fitness consulting co. & I have a hard time being inventive at times. Here are some things that we have tried & seem to like.
Ground Turkey breast- substitute for ground beef- make sure you do use ground turkey BREAST though because the regular ground turkey isn't as lean. - I have made taco salad- with lots of veggies- especially cucumbers, use mixed greens instead of iceburg lettuce and very-light on dressing- 1/2-1 tesp of a light salad dressing- vinegaretts are the best though. We also get the multi grain chips- still use just a few and use low fat cheese.
Another of our favorites is Chicken tortilla soup. boil chicken breast- 5-6 breasts, add a can of diced tomatoes, 1 med onion cut up, chicken stock- or boilion cubes work too, 1 can black beans, cilantro. After chicken is cooked remove from water & cut up- keep the water though for the bouilion unless you are using stock. Then add everything together & cook for about 20 minutes. Garnish with avocado- light sour cream and low fat cheese, also multi grain chips- use these ingredients sparingly. :)
We also like tilapia- baked with Lemon, brown rice & salsa and Yam with splenda and cinnamon.
Those are just a couple ideas we have used- Our website is THFonline.com- and they have recipe spotlights on there everyonce in while.
Whole grain pasta with tomato sauce and shimp is another one we like. My family- yes even my kids love asparagus too- I usually bake it at about 350-375 for 10-15 min with a little olive oil and very little salt- just enough to bring out a little flavor- sooooo good. You can email me anytime at ____@____.com you like some of these. :)
