    I’ve been adding extra veggies so any recipe (like carrots and celery in my chili) and lessening the amount of cheese. :)

  2. Susan Sorquist says

    what my family doesn’t know will make them healthy like cauliflower in the mashed potatoes and broccoli puree in the potatoe soup

  3. Tamara Choat says

    I feed my kid fruits and veggies when she is most hungry, and sneak spinach into any food that my husband will not call me out on.

  4. Dawn says

    Ever since I put in my summer and winter garden we have been able to add fresh fruit and veg to our meals year round.

  5. Staci says

    I’m not sure how I missed this GBP cookbook, I’m always on the lookout for healthier meals.

    I lighten up our meals by cutting back on fats and only using healthy fats such as olive oil in moderation.
    We love fresh veggies from the Farmer’s market.
    We very rarely consume processed foods.
    I use only lean cuts of meats and boneless skinless poultry.
    I only use low fat dairy and lots of Greek yogurt.
    I make cookies using oatmeal and bananas in place of four, sugar and fat.

    We love sweets and baked goods – this is my go-to recipe to indulge in those cravings:

    Healthy Oatmeal Banana Cookies

    2 large ripe bananas
    1 cup raw oatmeal, not instant or quick cooking
    1/4 cup shredded coconut
    1/4 cup dried cranberries
    1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
    1/4 cup chopped nuts
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
    In a mixer, lightly mash bananas.
    Stir in vanilla, cinnamon and oatmeal until just combined.
    Stir in remaining ingredients until mixed well.
    Using a small ice cream/cookie scoop (about 1 Tbsp), spoon out cookies in rounds on baking sheet.
    Bake for about 12 – 15 minutes.
    Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
    Recipe makes anywhere from 16 – 20 cookies depending on the amount of ingredients and the size of bananas.

    Always try to add veggies (even to something like Hamburger Helper) or increase the amount of veggies. If veggies are not part of the main dish, then I always make an effort to serve a side of veggies.

  7. Debbie Caraballo says

    I’ve been lightening up my recipes for awhile now. I use reduced fat dairy products, low sodium/fat free broth, increase vegetable content a bit, substitute ground turkey for beef in some things. Since I’m diabetic, I also used sugar free puddings, cake mixes, and cookies to make desserts!

  8. Carla Ellington says

    I quit smoking 2 1/2 years ago, but had a near death experience a year and a half ago, so not only am I nicotine free, I’m now caffine free! I’ve always been a water drinker but recently, about the last 6 months I’ve been adding fresh fruits, cucumbers and mint leaves to my water, then when my gallon jug is empty refill the water. Its usually good for 2 gallons and about 3 to 4 days. I always enjoy your blogs and thank you for the opportunity to enter.

  9. says

    I use lots more vegetables & hardly any assed salt. I’m a diabetic so I keep track of the carbs & sugar too. Use less red meat and try chicken and fish recipes.

  10. Kathie H says

    I used to use a lot of sauces and soups in my recipes. I learned how much sodium and calories I was feeding my family and I now use other methods such as broth, low fat dressing, etc. I also try to use mustard in place of mayonnaise on sandwiches for my sons (when they let me). I also learned to use applesauce in baking (when it won’t hurt the recipe) which cuts down on fat and is healthier for you.

    Firstly, a regular mowing regime is essential, the grass will learn the height control, and will grow lateral leaves, for
    a sufficient structure for photosynthesis.
    Basically, to be able to manage a real grass lawn properly,
    you need a substantial water supply and the means to trim it and weed the entire surface of the grass on a
    regular basis. They have studied them, all of them, and they know their needs and the issues that they might face throughout their lifetime.
    The answer lies in the fact that the garden weeds grow quickly and cause more such garden weeds to grow if left unattended.

    Lastly; find a toy that will appeal to the toddler’s interest.
    These arcade machines are very popular to play, but
    on the outside of the unit. The child can’t guide their own activity if they
    can’t reach their materials, so stash the toys within reach.
