I’m pretty new to cooking. I’ve made some pretty good dishes, but I have to follow the recipe exactly, I’m not brave yet. 🙂
So, what I need help with is healthy recipes. My hubby and I would like to start eating better but I’m best at making comfort food which isn’t the best for the belly! I have a bunch of chicken dishes (could always use more though), but what I would really like is some healthy beef dishes (I could eat chicken everyday, the hubby…not so much). I am sort of picky, so simple dishes are best, but he is not so really, any suggestions are welcome! Thanks in advance!

A really easy, and healthy meal is to make a stir fry. Basically you take a wok, add a little bit of oil and throw in whatever you want. You could do sliced beef, snow pees, etc. Just add in whatever veggies you feel like eating, yum yum.

@T-Rex: MM stir fry!
Going along with the stir fry idea…marinate the sliced beef in olive oil, lemon, and soy sauce before putting it in the pan with bell peppers and onions. Serve with warm corn tortillas you have some yummy fajitas!

Kabobs are easy, and dont nessacarlly have to be on a grill. buy some chunked beef ( or buy some and chunk it your self) small tomatos, onions ( if you like them) pepers ( you need to slice them) and mushrooms ( baby bellas work best ) and some wooden skewers ( wooden because they dont get so HOT) Maranaide the beef in EVOO ( exta virgin olive oil) , salt, peper, and about 1/2 Tbs of lemon juice, for about 20 mins. stick on skewer and place on girll . If there is no grill, pre heat a pan with some of the Evoo, and put the skewers in to the pan with a lid on it. Rotate untill beef is cooked to temp. that you want.
sides that go good, Asparagus with garlic and lemon, ( mince up grarlic and sautee with Evoo, add Asperagus and squirt a bit of lemon on it

One of our new favourites is a stuffed pepper from the Biggest Loser website. I would think you could easily sub ground beef for the turkey, and I usually swap the garlic and tomato sauce for salsa, to make things easier and more flavourful.
Darling Husband eats almost no carbs, and I’m weird about food mixed together, and this passes for both of us, which is a big win in my books.

We generally eat pretty and I love to cook. My latest go to website for healthy recipes is skinnytaste.com. Everything I have made off the site has tasted great and most of the recipes are pretty easy with pretty specific directions.
