Over the last few weeks I have focused all of my spare time on getting this house in order. Why? Because once the heavy lifting is done, maintaining a clean house is a breeze.
But when you come home and move furniture and wash walls, there’s not a lot of energy left when it comes to dinner. About the only thing that keeps me motivated to make dinner is that eating healthier is a priority in my life.
Tonight, I sure didn’t feel like cooking…
I threw together 2 chicken breasts, 3 potatoes, and some green beans to make Potatoes and Chicken Teriyaki. Its another one of the brain dead simple recipes – so fast, and really good! Comfortably serves 4 meat and potato people.
Do you think I would remember to take a picture? Of course not. We were starving and dug in! One of these days I’ll get more pictures to go with my recipes…
I was having a discussion with Bob the other night about eating healthier. He went on about how he is healthy and other people he knows are not.
I told him he is just lucky, and to think about his sister, and his deceased wife. I asked him what shape he thought his kids would be in at his age. He said he hopes they will be healthy.
I said, “you’re playing Russian Roulette with your kid’s health.”
You don’t have to play Russian Roulette with your family’s health. You can find plenty of healthier foods that you and your family will love. You don’t have to eat all spinach and tofu.
I’m in the process of transitioning 3 grown men to healthier eating. It hasn’t been the easiest thing. They love meat and carbs. Vegetables, not so much. I’ll keep exposing them to new things.
Only one would not eat the green beans. He says that his dad’s canned green beans has forever made him hate green beans. He almost ate one – but then no.
But they are eating fresh real food instead of instant and a lot less fast food. It’s only been a few weeks. I think that’s a lot of progress!
If you haven’t already – start trying some of the simple and fast recipes I put together for you. You’ll see – its really not hard at all!
