Good eats

by Juliemara


Eating healthy takes time, time most people don’t have. I really want to eat healthy. I even actually like the taste of healthy food. And like it or not I always feel better after a healthy meal. But finding the time to prep and eat healthy food is a challenge with kids. Ideally I would prepare food even cook it at night for the following days meals. But after the girls go to sleep and I clean the kitchen from the current nights meal it’s already late and my legs are tired from the day. So I’ll pass on the cooking and work in a small craft project while watching tv. And alas the vicious cycle of a hurried meal continues. I have dozens of cookbook filled with delicious recipes that take hours to shop for, prep, cook and clean up. Hours I hope to find one day so I can settle the unrest I feel about not being able to cook healthy balanced meals for my family.

This week I made myself one of my favorite healthy meals. A sweet salad with mixed greens, thinly sliced apple, Crumbled blue cheese and it was all inspired by chopped glazed pecans I found at Wal-Mart. They are really good.20130402-231831.jpg
Packed with protein and good for you fat. The bag says it hold four servings, so if I use less than a serving each time they are even better for me! I even got the 25% reduced fat blue cheese and I NEVER do reduced fat anything, but I can’t even taste a difference.
What’s your favorite five minute healthy meal?

    One of my favorite quick meals is a stir-fry or fried rice, and it’s normally how I’ll use up some leftovers!

    I’ll give you last night’s dinner:

    1 large Vidalia onion
    6 sweet peppers
    Leftover rotisserie chicken
    Pre-cooked sausage
    1 cup leftover green beans
    2 cups leftover rice
    1 or 2 eggs

    Start with a large skillet on med-high heat. Add a little bit of olive oil. Chop the onion, add to the pan. Chop peppers and add to pan. I used turkey sausage because we only had 1 1/2 chicken breasts left over. I put that in to warm up, then chopped the chicken and added that. Add rice. Cut green beans into 1 inch length and add. Make a spot in the middle, add a little bit of oil and crack the egg(s). Stir the egg(s) really well into everything. Spoon up and serve.

    – change up the veggies or meat
    – add nuts
    – add garlic or herbs
    – deglaze with wine, soy sauce or stock
    – also good with pasta instead of rice
