Good information. I do enjoy adding or changing up my recipes to keep them from getting boring.
Good information contained in this article. Good read!
Now to just live this lifestyle as much as possible
Now help me find a way to get my PARENTS to eat right! :D
love the ideas in this article on making what are normal menu items healthier. give me a lot of great ideas. I'm excited to make them chicken nuggets!! :)
Excellent!!! Thanks for the suggestion.
I always found whatever was on my plate, even though it was the same as theirs tasted better to my babies and now grandbabies.
I always add a little hot spices to my food. Grow my own peppers.
Most of these ideas are OK, but I do know that if my mom had added onion or black pepper to my food, I would not have eaten it. Too spicy!
Ive added high fiber oatmeal (red mill) and beans to a meatloaf, and put mexican spices in it. It stretched out the meat and made it healthier.
I always add shredded zuccini to my meatloaf, not only does it add the veggies it also keeps the meatloaf very moist. I added it for years before I my husband found out what the "secret" to my moist meatloaf was!!!
these are great ideas, my kids are grown but I may use them on my hubby who is obsessed with sugary/sodium laden foods.
