I've been cleaning up my diet the past few months. Slowly but surely, my eating habits (well - let's say 85% of the time) are coming in line with what is considered "healthy". But let's face it - eating healthy isn't exactly an easy thing to do. You have to plan for it. You have to change the way you grocery shop and change the staple snacks and dinners you prepare in your home. It's a lot of change.
We've been eating a lot of chicken - I mean a lot. Probably three or four meals a week are prepared with some sort of chicken. And any recipe that calls for ground beef gets substituted with ground turkey. Basically - I've been avoiding red meat.
This morning I threw three frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot and poured two cans of 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup and one can of cheddar cheese soup over top. (Let it cook on low all day and pour over brown rice - YUMMY!!)
Earlier this afternoon, I informed hubby that we would be having chicken and rice for dinner to which he replied, "Really? I mean - I love it, it's good. But I need some beef in my life!"
Umm....yeah....about that. We don't have an ounce of beef anywhere in our fridge or freezer at the moment. I guess I'm going to have to break down and buy some good steaks for dinner Sunday evening. Hubby is the *master* griller. I swear his steaks are better than any steakhouse I've ever eaten at. So I will have to make an effort to plan for a few lean beef meals over the next few weeks.
Everything in moderation right? After all, the man needs some beef in his life!
