Well I have just discovered while juggling all and school..take your kids with you on an evening walk. That really helped me and i got to spend time with my kids. I do not know how old your kids are but mine are 11, 9, and 4.

I have started utilizing my crockpot..I just made some spaghetti sauce and a batch of cannelini beans..I work part-time and on my work days it sure is wonderful to heat and eat...It saves us from making unhealthy choices to have all the major work completed...Tomorrow, all I have to do is cook the pasta and heat the sauce..And no take-out..emoticon

Do the same- sneak veggies into my homemade sauce, wheat pasta, sweet potatoes instead of regular, steam veggies often, make big salads, so I can eat through out the week. Also make sure i have plenty of fruit to snack on that I love. Peanut butter with apple- fave.

I eat pretty much the same things everyday, but they are really good.

For lunch, I have blackened tilapia with braised spinach and couscous. It takes about 10 minutes to make, fills me up, and is super healthy.

For special meals, I make classic favorites, lightened up. I'll make spaghetti with whole wheat noodles and homemade sauce. I "sneak" in pureed veggies in the sauce and then it packs more of a nutrient punch, and my kids eat it. I'll use ground lean turkey to make meatballs, instead of beef.

It's fun to reinvent dishes. It keeps me from getting bored.

Slow and steady wins the race.

Be the change you want to see in the world.

I use the SP recipes and do large batch cooking on the week-end so that I just need to make a few sides and heat up the main portion to have a healthy meal for me and my family.

emoticon Hi all! I am a chef, and am around rich foods all day. From chocolate truffles to truffle pasta, the food is amazing! ... and amazingly high in fat, and carbs, and, did I mention fat? So instead of eating cardboard and dry beans to ensure a diet high in fiber and lean protein, I try to make simply changes in the dishes I already love so that the food is healthy AND delicious.

What are some things you do or eat that make your eating habits healthier without making you dread mealtime?
