My New Years Resolution.... better late then never right!

So after the twins I still have some extra pounds left around that just need to go... no more excuses, no more complaints.... just action now!

So I told my husband we are going on a diet... and he was not thrilled. In fact he keeps sneaking junk food. He asked why he had to be on a diet too... and I said because we are in this together and I don't want to do this alone! Plus why make separate meals! If he doesn't like it he can make his own food... LOL!

So here are some recipes I have tried out of a book called 100 Healthiest Foods given to me by my FIL ... which is amazing and includes many recipes. So far so good... in about a week I went from 125 to 119. And actually the food isn't bad at all... even my husband said that for "Healthy Foods" It's pretty good



This is a Mexican Salad with...
Romaine Lettuce
Yellow Onions
Black Beans
Avacado
Steamed Chicken Breast
Salsa
Fat Free Cheddar Cheese (definately not regular Cheddar but doesn't taste horrible)
Roma Tomatoes


Healthy Sauteed Shrimp with Salad

Shrimp was sauteed in Vegetable broth (healthier then cooking in oil) and then added fresh minced garlic, sea salt and cracked pepper. Then after done cooking drizzle olive oil and lemon juice on top

Salad: Romaine lettuce, yellow onions soaked in vinegar for flavor, walnuts, feta cheese, sea salt and pepper. The dressing was a mix of olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and minced garlic.

I am sure after the holidays lots of people have a few pounds to lose! These recipes are worth trying. If you want a detailed recipe let me know. I can email to you! Even if not trying to lose weight, these are just great recipes for just healthy eating.

Email me the shrimp recipe! You know I'm all about healthy cooking and eating! Especially after my surgery, working out has been easier on me. Why not eat healthy on top of it? :)

WAIT A MINUTE... YOU NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT??? WHAT???


I am not understanding this at all. You are ultra skinny and you want to lose weight? I can understand just eating healthy to be healthy but to lose weight? You lose any more weight we wont be able to see you when you turn side ways.
