What Did YOU Have for Dinner Today?

May Day – Healthy Eating Alert!!

Some days I just think, “Man I have to think about what to have for dinner again?!?!”  After a long day…it’s not always easy to think about what to have for dinner – I just want it served!

While walking Toby along the Kansas River this evening, I thought long and hard about what to do about dinner.  Oddly enough, I couldn’t come up with anything.  Sometimes that happens if I’ve eaten out too much – nothing sounds good.

So I did what I always do when I’ve been eating out too much – I made a salad (romaine lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, pumpkin seeds and walnuts with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing).  It was a pretty simple salad but satisfying.  I had more things I could have prepped to put in it, but I just didn’t want to bother.  A little tired after a week of projects.  Then I had a great idea…..

My great idea about healthy eating…for the month of May

I have a very talented, smart, healthy, eager list of subscribers.  You can help me decide what to have for dinner so I can create my Top 10 List of Dinners–and so can you!  Many of my subscribers are wellness experts or health nuts….so hey, we’re just a few comments away from having a ton of new ideas.

Here’s what I’d like to do for the month of May if you’re willing.  I’ll post regularly about healthy eating and ask for your contributions.  You can tell us what you had for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.  You can review of your favorite cookbook/sYou can share simple, healthy recipes.  You can tell us how to make your favorite dressing.  I’m loving this idea.

If you haven’t already subscribed via the RSS feed or the big red button at the top right for email alerts when I post…I recommend you do that you’ll be on top of it as soon as a new healthy eating post goes up.  Sound good?

Let’s start by  telling us what you had for dinner today? Even if it was a #1 at McDs or a Crunch Wrap Supreme at Taco Bell….do tell!  We’re going to feel free to be real here about what we eat.  And we won’t be food cops. 

What did YOU have for dinner today?

And … what are your typical favorite dinners–especially things that you make fast–maybe even without a recipe?  We’re looking for dinner ideas!

    I actually had healthy take-out – Chinese.

    Stir fry Chinese broccoli and bok choy with chicken – no white rice! :)

  2. Well yes, you often get healthy takeout… You’re a good little healthy eater :)

    Speaking of rice – the first time it occurred to me to have a stir fry without rice….I shocked myself. It was good so another paradigm was blasted. Thinking outside the Chinese take out box.

  3. I received a direct reply from a subscriber, Clarence, and it was so neato I’m pasting it below:

    I have access to real raw milk and I have some of my own garden’s tomatoes in the freezer, so I had tomato soup.

    Cut up an onion and saute until transparent Puree some (I’m male, “some” is a measurement) frozen tomatoes (peel first in hot water to remove skins) Add some milk, the onions, basil, thyme and a bit of sugar to take the acidity out of the tomatoes.

    Heat n eat.

    Your newsletter is lovely, lively and I like you.

    We put a spicy rub on some chicken breasts and baked them in the oven. Enjoyed some steamed broccoli and fava beans on the side. Pretty healthy start to the month of May.

  5. Laurie D. says:

    We had turkey “burgers” – low-fat ground turkey seasoned with sauteed red onions and cumin. They are served in a pita pocket and dressed with yogurt sauce. The yogurt sauce was made with fat-free plain yougurt, a little red wine viegar, dill, diced fresh tomatoes, sliced red onions, cucumber slices and dill. Very light and healthy and yummy too! Fruit salad on the side.

  6. Joyce says:

    Yesterday for dinner I had Ground beef burger, baked sweet potato and salad.

  7. What great dinners you all had. Good ideas……for my top 10 list.

    Anybody out there eat fast food for dinner? You can confess it here. We are not food cops….at least I’m not and I’m willing to encourage others to be the same. Who wants people to comment negatively on what they’re eating – n o b o d y!

    And if you eat fast food regularly, I’m hoping that you’ll get simple ideas for incorporating more healthy fare into your daily options. Cheryl

  8. Heather says:

    I made a salad of boson lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, scallions, mushrooms, and sliced hard boiled eggs, and roasted beets on top. We grilled some steak and threw on a handful of nice local aged blue cheese…and voila! we heated up some garlic nan…it was divine.

  9. Heather – I’m coming over for dinner. De-vine!

  10. Rebecca says:

    No, I don’t do fast food, unless I’m traveling and just have to. Even on days when I run errands and will be out all day, I pack a lunch.

  11. Sally says:

    We had baked salmon steak, mashed cauliflower, spinach salad with roasted pumpkin seeks, dried cranberries, shredded soy cheese on top with balsamic dressing

  12. Sounds fabulous Sally – the mashed cauliflower reminds me of a friend who is on the high protein diet. They eat that instead of potatoes. Cheryl
