Happy new year! Like almost everyone else, my new years resolutions usually involve plans to eat healthier. One year I actually did it! My idea of healthy eating doesn’t involve “low fat’ or “low carb” or anything else “low”. It consists of natural, fresh, minimally processed REAL food. Like Michael Pollan says ” eat food, not too much, mostly plants”. In the past I’ve talked about how I do this on a reasonable budget.
So, here are lots of ideas. Not only are these basically healthy ideas, but they’re also mostly really easy and quick.
I make roast chicken a couple times a month. One chicken will last 3 or 4 days and can be used in many different ways. This is a “bowl” with the roast chicken, some steamed broccoli, and warm pasta salad with tomatoes, feta chunks, basil, and olive oil.
Nothing is easier to make than eggs. Here’s a fried egg, some oven roasted potatoes, and a nice big green salad with veggies.
Chicken posole and a green salad with lots of veggies. For dressing I usually just use olive oil and vinegar.
The best and easiest black bean soup, green salad with leftover roast chicken.
I really like one bowl meals. One of the healthiest things you can eat is mixed veggies. This is onions, broccoli, orange bell peppers, and corn sauteed in some olive oil. I probably either servied this in a bowl of rice and black beans or in a taco.
I hope these ideas help you in your quest to eat healthier. Let me know what you eat when you want to be healthier!
