12 Healthy Meals That Actually Taste Good

I'm working on #7 of my 40 by 40 list-Complete 12 weeks of Body for Life.  Basically, I'm trying to eat meals that are high in nutrition, low in fat and have equal amounts of carbs and proteins. (I get to eat whatever I want on Saturdays-yippee) I'm on week 3 and have lost 6.8 pounds so far, but mostly I just want to be healthier.  I'm always looking for healthy food that tastes good.  Here's some of my favorites.

Spinach Salad(we eat this a few nights a week)
 Naan(kid's fav healthy meal)   

Skinny Cordon Bleu (Best healthy thing I make) 

Black Bean and Corn Salsa (football food)  

Grillled Mango Chicken (you'll want to eat the salsa straight out of the bowl)  

What I eat almost every day: Apple Crisp Oatmeal

I'll throw in a 13th recipe for luck:
Cauliflower poppers by Delighted Momma
 I saw these on pinterest and tried them last week.  We thought they were pretty good.

If you have any healthy recipes, please leave a link in the comments-I've got 9 weeks to go.

  6. Hi I have a few you can try: Fish Foil Packets-
    Green Rice Casserole-
    White Chicken Chili-

  7. Oh, wow, these look great! Definitely saving these--I think I want to try the Cherry Limeade Frozen Yogurt first.

    We've just started holding a linky party and we'd love for you to share this:

  8. Since I've been dieting this recipes will really come in handy. Lovely that oatmeal. It looks delicious, also the white chili looks so good wishing I had some right now. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best party!

  9. Fantastic recipes! Thanks for sharing these. It's not easy to find stuff that tastes good and is healthy. I also recommend swapping out a few ingredients for your spinach salad to mix things up (no pun intended). Just take thin sliced strawberries, a little low fat feta cheese, some slivered almonds, and combine with the spinach. I usually then take some strawberries and put them in a blender with just a touch of oil and a smidge of sugar. Yeah, really technical recipe here, sorry. Then pour that over the salad and follow with a splash of balsamic vinegar to tie it all in. Super tasty and really good for you. :)

  10. I like the sound of the cherry limade frozen yogurt. My granddaughter is having a luau party in March for her b-day. This would be great to serve!

  17. One of my favorite healthy meals would be the apple crisp oatmeal.

  18. Yummy recipes. These are also good as appetizer. I love making easy appetizers for my family.

  19. My husband usually thinks that a healthy meal is a salad, and doesn't find much joy or interest in "healthy food". I am trying the meal ideas from your pictures, they all look fantastic! I am going to show my husband that healthy meals can be very delicious and nutritious.!tasting/c18ah
