“steak”, “mashed potatoes”, and chips 🙂
So tonight I decided to make the husband happy…and healthy 😉 I’m a very sneaky wife mwahahah! All vegetables tonight!
Instead of steak I marinated portobello mushrooms in Worcestershire sauce all day and then grilled them.
For the mashed potatoes I took frozen cauliflower and microwaved it for 7 minutes (til thawed) drained te water and put it in my food processor with some italian herbs! Voila! Faux mashed potatoes that would fool any child or husband (but I think some cheese would be a really good tasty add in if you’re feeding kiddos).
Instead if classic frozen chips I chopped up a sweet potato, steamed them for 25 minutes along with the broccoli (and 6 eggs for lunches this week). Then I sautéed them in some leftover Worcestershire sauce in a nonstick pan with no extra oil to crispy them up.
Yummy yummy! I think I could feed this to my little 10 year old brother and even he would like it. Massive thumbs up from the hubby tonight 🙂
This afternoon I really really wanted peanut butter!!! I use all natural peanut butter with no added sugar or oil that is DELICIOUS! But it is so calorie dense that you can’t really have very much of it and I wanted a treat that was filling and a bit more to feast on 😉
So I grabbed my non-fat Greek Yogurt and made a blend 🙂
1/2 cup non-fat Greek Yogurt
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 teaspoon honey
Large dash of cinnamon 😉
I paired it with a sliced apple. Yum!!!
Greek yogurt is amazing for you! It’s an awesome source of low fat protein. There have been numerous studies saying that regularly eating low fat dairy daily. It is also such a good alternative to sour cream, dips, and salad dressings.
Peanut butter gives you healthy fats and oils and protein. It is so good for you but easy to go a bit overboard and have too much too quickly so watch out!
Cinnamon is so good for you. It raises your metabolism and keeps hunger at bay. It also contains healthy antioxidants which makes your body say THANK YOU!
apples!!!! my favorite! Apples and bananas rule my fruit bowl. Apples have a low GI which means it keeps your body feel full for longer plus they are crunchy and sweet which is a major win for me 🙂
