Fish is one of the healthiest foods we can eat, right? Not always. You need to get wild caught, not farm raised, if you want to make a healthy meal. I came across wild caught flounder in BJ’s Wholesale Club (think Costco or Sam’s Club) a few months ago and bought a bag. I love white fish and the rest of my people love any kind of fish, so I figured we’d have fish for dinner.
Because I was so used to cooking one way (the unhealthy way), I had to figure out how to cook this stuff and have it be edible. Naturally, I took to Pinterest for inspiration. While I found a lot of interesting recipes, nothing jumped out at me shouting “Hey! Cook me!”. So, I did what anyone else would do…I threw some stuff together and this is what I came up with.
This is one of my favorite dishes to make! It’s quick and easy and there aren’t a lot of dishes involved. I usually serve broccoli (my favorite!) with this but any green veggie would work. If you’re looking for something quick, easy, healthy, and different for dinner, this is it! Give it a try!
I’m always looking for ways to make comfort foods in a healthy way so when I first heard about the air fryer, I had to have one. The first thing I made in it was sweet potato fries. It took no time to cook them and they were so good! Needless to say, I was impressed. I came across a recipe for chicken tenders in one the health magazines I’m subscribed to and immediately thought of how I could make it better. The original recipe is below.
As you can see, this recipe contains 330 calories for 2 tenders and 1 Tbsp of sauce. Well, my version allows you to eat half of the tenders and 1 Tbsp of sauce for 320 calories! Which one do you want to make? Here’s my recipe for air fried chicken tenders…
My recipe for air fried chicken tenders is a much healthier alternative than the original recipe. And, using an air fryer instead of oil makes it that much better. Trust me, you won’t miss frying food in oil! If you’re interested in purchasing an air fryer, this is the one I have:
I got this from Bed, Bath and Beyond but I recently saw the same model in Target. Be sure to give it plenty of room when you’re using it because it pushes all the hot air out of the back. I heard a story of one woman melting her Keurig!
I’d love to know what you think of the chicken tenders so comment below when you’ve tried them. You won’t be disappointed!
I’m always looking for new ways to prepare the same old foods so I don’t get bored eating the same stuff every single day. I’ve even started combining foods I like, which is huge for me because I’m a creature of habit. I made some homemade bruschetta the other day and it smelled heavenly! I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to use it for, other than just eating it as a side, so I decided to put it over some grilled chicken breast tenderloin. The result? Absolutely delicious bruschetta chicken! Here’s the recipe:
I’m all about trying new things because eating the same shit day after day gets old fast. While I was busy pinning some things, I found this Pinterest recipe for cheesy chicken broccoli and rice.
At first, I was nervous about making it because of the onion and garlic. I love garlic but I’ve never used it in a dish like this. Well, I’m so glad I was adventurous because this was absolutely delicious.
I know it may not look like much (some people actually told me it looked like it was regurgitated), but, trust me, it was GOOD! If you’re looking for a quick recipe that’s filling and delicious, this is the one!
Chicken Caesar salad is my go-to healthy meal when I don’t know what to cook or I just want something quick. I have a Hamilton Beach 25331 Super Sear 100-Square-Inch Nonstick Indoor Searing Grill and I cook everything I can on it. This dish is super easy to make because there’s only 3 main ingredients and it’s ready to eat in 10 minutes. So much better than any of those nasty microwave “healthy” meals on the market.
A chicken Caesar salad at a restaurant generally has 800 calories. This salad cuts is about half the calories and contains fresher veggies.
My favorite dish at Ruby Tuesday’s is the spicy shrimp pasta but I don’t always get to eat there. So, I decided to make my own variation and it’s absolutely delicious! Because I know exactly what’s in it, it works perfectly with my healthy eating plan. Yes, I could choose better meals but this is a treat for me.
Made from whole grain pasta (not wheat!), this dish is a great way to satisfy your carb cravings. Feel free to add in any veggies you want and the spicier the better!
I love pizza but it doesn’t always go along with healthy eating. That is, until now. I found the idea for a flatbread pizza on Pinterest and modified it to suit my tastes. I mix it up with garlic flavored flatbread to add a bit more oomph to it. It’s very filling, super yummy, and really easy and quick to make!
It’s a quick and easy lunch for when you want something not-so-healthy but don’t want to wreck your healthy eating. I don’t even miss regular pizza!
