Healthy Meals from my kitchen to yours!

I want to share as many good healthy recipes to help us stay focused on healthy eating and Weight Watchers have been helping people make healthy food choices so my first meal is one that was adapted from one of their cookbooks.

Turkey and veggie pizza

I  know that I want to be healthy but won't deprive myself from indulging now and again.  Life is way to short to totally eliminate sweets and special dishes and meals that we all like.  Obviously eating poorly everyday is NOT a good idea.  

I am checking my cookbooks and adapting recipes hopefully that will be of interest to you.  I will try to incorporate fish or even some seafood into my dishes as well as chicken, turkey or a meatless dish.  I am hoping that appeals to you.  I'd like to trim down a few pounds and quite honestly I am not into serious exercise so it has to be my food choices that will help shed the weight. I do believe in taking a nice brisk walk when the weather permits. 

Have a great day and keep coming back.  I'd love to hear from you.

Happy Healthy Eating!
