Healthy Recipes to Try This Week

In an effort to make some more healthy recipes, I am going to try some recipes from Skinny Taste.  The first one that caught my eye was the spinach lasagna rolls.  I love lasagna in any form and these look delish!  Too bad Jack hates lasagna (he doesn't like cheese), I will have to find some alternative for him.

Next, I found a pork chop recipe.  I, personally, don't really care for pork, but Bryan loves it.  This one has mushrooms, which I love, so I will tolerate the meal. I will also serve it with the roasted cauliflower as suggested on the page.

This next one has me really intrigued!  Turkey Pumpkin Chili!!  We all love chili, and I love meals that use my crock pot when the weather heats up here in southern Louisiana.

I am also going to try some of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Recipes.  Since it is hot here, I like to utilize the grill outside as much as possible.  I am going to get Bryan going on his grill with Jamie's Grilled Chicken.  I think it will go great with a salad.  I have lettuce in my garden that needs to be harvested.  Too bad my tomatoes are still green and my broccoli and carrots aren't ready to be harvested yet :-(

And meal #5 for the week will be Jamie's Salmon Cakes served with steamed broccoli.

That about covers all of MY bases. Those are pretty healthy meals for my family: 1 pasta, 1 turkey, 1 pork, 1 chicken, and 1 seafood.  I know that this menu wouldn't work for all of my vegetarian friends, but for us omnivores, I think this is pretty balanced. . . and there isn't any red meat this week. 

By the way, even though we eat meat, I try to incorporate 1 meatless meal a week.  If you have any really yummy vegetarian meals that you think my meat loving husband would like, please share!
