I make this amazing honey glazed salmon that Fiance loves. There’s no fat used in the cooking, but there is honey so not sure how healthy it is lol

I also love roast chicken and veggies and then I make the leftovers into pot pie (not so healthy but the first part is!)

I feel the same way! I have a ton of food allergies so we tend to eat the same things over and over. Here are some recent favorities:

Breakfast:

Protein pancakes with chicken apple sausage

Baked eggs in avocado

Egg muffins with veggies 

Sweet potato noodles with an overeasy egg on top.

Breakfast tacos-eggs, salsa, turkey sausage–all inside a tortilla. 

Lunch:

Tuna salad made with mashed avocado and garlic served on cucmber slices

Black bean and avocado “tacos” (i use butter lettuce leaves instead of tortillas) with greek yogurt and hot sauce on top. Usually add chicken for Darling Husband

Pizza with organic tomato sauce, turkey sausage, veggies, and either string cheese or feta (but I use a cabbage steak instead of dough or in a pinch a gluten-free corn tortilla)

Zoodles with marinara and italian turkey sausage

Dinner:

Turkey shephard’s pie made with mushrooms, veggies, and topped with mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes

Chicken and white bean chili

Shaved brussels and Kale salad with a 6 min egg and lemon dressing (some sort of protein for DH-steak works really well for this).

Turkey bacon wrapped butternut squash (sprinkled with coconut sugar and garlic) with chicken breast and mashed cauliflower

I have been trying to eat healthier lately and have found some good recipes.

Breakfast I pretty typically eat cereal or oatmeal since I don’t have a ton of time in the morning.

Lunch: I usually eat a chobani greek yogurt, something a bit savory like assorted nuts, pretzels, crackers and then a piece of fruit.

Dinners: This is where I get creative since my breakfasts and lunches are usually pretty standard and boring. Some things I’ve made lately that I liked:

-Salmon pretty much any way. I love salmon and one of my favorite ways to eat it is with a honey mustard glaze.

-Baked sweet potato fries 

-Parmesian baked asparagus 

-Soups: I love soups year round but especially in the winter. Some of my favorites are creamy tomato basil (surprisingly healthy for being creamy!), Chicken tortilla soup, Creamy chicken and mushroom soup

– Marinated chicken breast. I usually just buy some viniagrette based salad dressing (like light ceasar) and marinate chicken over night. Bake it in the oven and it comes out great. 

I also love asian flavors in my food since it’s easy to achieve big flavor but still remain healthy (Like asian stir fries or noodle/rice dishes. 

If anyone wants more details, feel free to message me.

I love a good mezze (sp?) platter. I bake my falafels rather than fry them so it makes the meal healthier.

I try to eat healthy. Try is the key word. Yesterday I made the Fiance a baked chicken, apple, cranberry and blue cheese salad over spinach with balsamic dressing. He really like it. I had a turkey sandwich with onion, tomato, spinach and avocado. Tonight we are having garlic rosemary grilled chicken (marinating in the fridge now) and baked sweet potato fries.

flafels are easy, mashed chickpeas with spices and herbs. I put mine on spinach and make a non fat greek yogurt dressing with dill. Super easy and yum!

ellagrace:  Mezze can be a variety of different food items but in most of the restaurants I go to the sampling consists of hummus, baba ghannouj, tabouli, dolmades, falafels, cured olives (I leave those alone YUCK), tahini, and pita. 

The falafels are easy to bake, however they are more crumbly so it’s best to eat them in a pita as a sandwich to avoid making a mess. I also use dill instead of cilantro and add a little lemon juice as well. I think they taste great but my husband can’t tolerate the smell (probably the coriander) so I don’t make them too often.

ellagrace:  I make my own falafels at home using falafel powder (so not 100% homemade lol), but the powder is just the ground chickpeas and spices so its still fairly healthy- you can get the powder usually in the health food section. Just add water, form into balls and cook them. I usually fry mine, but not with oil- just in the pan. I might try baking them though, it sounds like a good alternative!
