Trying to Eat Healthy Involves Cooking My Way

food 009You can’t loose weight eating out. Impossible. I eat out with friends at least 3 times a week. It doesn’t matter what place we go to there are only  a few things that don’t involve grease, flour, salt or carbs. It’s always the lesser of the evils. Then sometimes I just don’t care. My friend Debbie has been trying to cook healthy and I started back. Last week I made five TV tray dinners with turkey and vegetables. Today, I made six meals I can take to school and heat up for lunches and suppers. I cooked chicken in the oven, black beans, lima beans, carrots, and squash and onions. I did enough for the week and put it in divided bowls with lids. Add a little salad, or tomatoes, or carrots, you got a great meals.It’s cheaper, easy, and basically non-fattening. food 011food 012

      Who are you????? I thought you were Deb Chance from Round Rock, Texas.
      She died a couple of weeks ago and to get a comment from her was weird.

        I have been going on the assumption that you were Debbie Chance so long. Thank you for clearing that up. Debbie was a member of our quilt guild in Little Rock for years then moved away to Texas. She got cancer and it was a battle for about 3 years and all that time I thought it was her. I do thank you for readng my blog and commenting. This week end I have had over 2,00 people go to the blog but no one ever comments. I appreciate you saying things. It makes me fell someone out there is looking reading about my crazy creative life. Stay tuned!
