The wife and I are trying to eat healthier. I figured I'd start a thread and we could all share ideas and recipes.

The wife cooked a roast in the crock pot a few days ago. She had added a couple large onions and let it cook all day. I told her to save all the broth with the onions. When I got home tonight, I started prepping our nightly vegetables. I really didn't have a plan, but a light bulb went off and here's the result. I took that highly concentrated both on to simmer and added some quinoa.

While that was simmering, I chopped up red and green bell peppers, sweet red onions, carrots, and mushrooms, I put everything except mushrooms in a skillet with some olive oil and saute'd until the carrot was crisp tender, then added the mushrooms and cooked a bit longer. I added about a cup of my left over broth. I chopped up some of the left over roast, I added it to skillet till every thing was heated through. I mixed a little arrowroot with water and added to skillet to thicken up and make a nice gravy.

To serve, I put the quinoa on the plate and ladled the meat, veggy, gravy mixture over it.


It was real tasty! I should have taken a picture. Will try to remember next time

Ate salad for dinner!  Mostly croutons & tomatoes.  Really just one big, round crouton covered with tomato sauce.  And cheese.   FINE, it was a pizza.  I ate a pizza.

Grilled pork chop, baked sweet potato and green beans. Easy on the butter and it's a low fat meal.

Couple of things we're doing that seem to be helping right now.. Eating a lot of fish & I don't mean fried catfish.. Mostly tilapia & salmon in the oven & then use it on top of a salad..

Eating a lot of veggies these days.. Sliced squash & zucchini baked in the oven w/ a little bit of olive oil.. Steamed broccoli, green beans, spinach, roasted corn on the cobb on the BGE, Brussel sprouts, etc.. You can get full on veggies & take in a lot less calories than w/ carbs.

Also been making chicken teriyaki kabobs w/ bell peppers (green, red & yellow.. all different flavors), purple onions, mushrooms, squash, zucchini & boneless/skinless chicken breast cubed & put on skewers..

Add more fat to your diet. Butter is fine, it is much better for you than margarine or low fat alternatives. Anything that says "low fat" on the label is garbage, don't eat it.

Replace carbs with fats and you will see your body fat melt off. Foods high in fat are nuts, coconut oil, coconuts, olive oil, butter, peanut butter, eat the fat/skin of meats, avocados, cheese, milk, whole eggs, full fat yogurt, fatty fish, flax seed and olives.

Most of the information regarding fats and saturated fats is way outdated and flat out wrong for the most part. Fat is good for you, it helps promote testosterone production and metabolism.

Keep a jar of sunflower seeds w/ me as a little afternoon snack.. We're also going through a ton of avocados on salads, as a side to the kabobs, as a side to grilled pork chops, on grilled chicken wraps, etc..

Seared deer steak with sautéed squash and onions.

Pan seared fish with some form of vegi.

Biggest thing I have always found is portion control. I will eat until there is no food left, helps to only cook what we need to eat up

A fast easy one is a can of chicken drained and a can of hot rotel. I usually add a little brown rice.
