These are most of the dinners I make. Sometimes I make extra things for the kids like mac and cheese, biscuits, hot dogs instead of turkey burgers. I still make meat loaf and mashed potatoes and stuff like that. I just add low fat milk and use no butter. I also buy very lean meat. Our beef has gone from 2 to 3 days a week down to 1 or 1 every other week. We are eating mostly the same things just made a differently. No fast food has been the biggest change of all.
Check out kraftfoods.com and they have a healthy living section with low calorie recipies. I find some really good things on there. And for the meals you already make, just make low calorie substitutions. And go light on condiments!
One of our group members, Trudie, gave me this wonderful idea today! For roasted brussel sprouts. Roast them in the oven with a little olive oil, sea salt, and pepper. They sound awesome to me. : )
Love all of the wonderful ideas tigerlilly! Thanks for all of the suggestions, it is always nice to try something a little differently. : )
