Healthy meal ideas!



Article Contributed by Sean K

If you’re tired of eating on the run and feeling sluggish later, there is good news!  Many healthy meal ideals  can not only give you the nutrients you need but are fun to make as well as filling.
Gone are the days when eating right meant having “rabbit food” that’s bland and unsatisfying.  Now, you and your family can eat right without sacrificing taste or spending a lot of money.
Making beef or chicken skewers is pretty easy and healthier than deep fried chicken meals.  If you’re using an outdoor grill, then you will want to soak your kabob sticks in water for about 30 minutes before placing on grill.  In the meantime, you can use lean cuts of your favorite meat and soak in your favorite marinade or rub for at least 2 hours before cooking.  If you cover and refrigerate overnight, the taste will be stronger.  Then cut meat into bite-size pieces and place on skewer.  You can add vegetables such as onion wedges, pepper slices or whole button mushrooms.  For a sweet taste, cherry tomatoes or pineapple chunks may be used.  Once you have your ingredients on the stick, place in a broiler at 400 degrees or grill until meat is done.  

Pizza is considered one of the most fattening foods out there and the truth is that it doesn’t have to be.  For starters, you can buy thin crust pizzas at most stores.  There are even crusts that are made of whole wheat, corn meal or are gluten-free.  This cuts a lot of the carbohydrates that are found in thick or cheesy crust pizzas.  Excessive carbs can also be hard to burn and eventually affect weight and blood sugar levels.   Instead of using pizza sauce, try a reduced sodium pizza sauce or vegetable marinara sauce.  Some people like feta cheese as a healthy alternative to mozzarella or cheddar.  Since mozzarella is made of skim milk, it’s not as damaging as hard cheeses that are not reduced fat. Instead of using the usual deli meats, try ground turkey or broiled chicken strips.  With these being fresh, you can control the sodium and fat content, which is little to none.  Or make your own veggie pizza.  These days, spinach, broccoli, eggplant and Portobello mushrooms are meatless alternatives that are filling enough to make a nice entrĂ©e.  Once you’ve assembled your healthy pizza pie, place in a pre-heated oven of 400 degree and let cook for about 15 minutes.

Do you like apple pie to finish off your meal?  Make a quick dessert by cutting an apple in half and removing the core.  Top with a little cinnamon, raisins and crumbled graham crackers mixed with melted margarine and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.  Having two of these halves is not nearly as bad as having two slices of apple pie so dig in!

So there is no need to sacrifice taste when it comes to eating right for better health and well-being.
