I love to cook & bake and I think that gets me into a bit of trouble especially as I love baking cakes & cookies. But I searched the internet for healthy recipes today. I tried to stay away from as much dessert recipes as possible. I have 2 soup recipes already that I love and are healthy but I need variety! So I found 6 more healthy recipes to try out (mostly more soup). I do hope they're tasty. I did find one not so healthy recipe that I'm going to try too but its for homemade coffee creamer & I think it'll be healthier than the stuff I buy now. Little steps, right? Maybe someday I'll even give up the coffee. So after finding these recipes my hubby & I went grocery shopping. I bought all the ingredients I needed to try out the new recipes. I also had to talk my husband out of an industrial sized can of tapioca & convinced him to buy a gallon of frozen yogurt instead of ice cream. We didn't buy any chips, cookies, soda, or any junk food. Unfortunately we usually don't and we're still heavier than we'd like. Guess I need to start thinking about fitness too. (Yuck! Especially in winter!) I also talked him into signing up for Sparkpeople though if he actually ever touches it is another story.
