    Lettuce salads are perfect for healthy eating. Avoid dressing with mayo as they are higher in calories, go for dressings with olive oil and vinegars. Here is a link to a few of my recipes

    I would stick with fish, seafood and chicken, either sauteed, grilled, baked and roasted will offer the least amount of calories and fat. Eat sauteed and steamed veggies for other healthy options.

    DIRECTIONS:
    1. Place washed chicken breasts in large sealable bag. Add 1 cup fat-free Italian dressing and close. Let marinate for 5 to 10 minutes.
    2. Cut up peppers into big chunks, and zucchini into big slices. Put into another sealable bag. Coat with leftover dressing.

    Spicy Chicken Breasts

    INGREDIENTS:
    2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
    2 tablespoons garlic powder

    DIRECTIONS:
    1. In a medium bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic powder, salt, onion powder, thyme, cayenne pepper, and ground black pepper. Set aside about 3 tablespoons of this seasoning mixture for the chicken; store the remainder in an airtight container for later use (for seasoning fish, meats, or vegetables).
    2. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Rub some of the reserved 3 tablespoons of seasoning onto both sides of the chicken breasts.
    3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place chicken on the grill, and cook for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until juices run clear.

    2. Preheat grill to medium high heat OR set oven to broil.

    You and your hubby sound like us when we started trying to eat healthy, LOL.

    At the risk of sounding like a big ‘ol tree hugger, we just started eating as “close to nature” as we could: lots of vegetables and fruits; poultry,fish, nuts and beans for protein, fat-free or reduced-fat dairy– and whole grains: whole-grain or oatmeal bread ( sparingly), brown rice, whole-wheat pasta.

    We tossed anything processed, in a box or a can.

    An average day for us goes something like this:

    Oatmeal and fruit for breakfast; a mid-morning snack ( usually a piece of fruit, a handful of nuts, a FF yogurt); a big salad with some sort of protein for lunch ( strips of chicken, cashews–the possibilities are endless…try to make lunch the biggest meal of the day, as you have hours to burn it off); mid-afternoon snack like the morning one and dinner either chicken or fish ( check out sites like caloriecount.com for what a real portion size should be) and a load of veggies. We get the last snack in by 8 PM being the cutoff time; fruit, sugar-free gelatin, a cup of plain popcorn–veggies, nuts, pumpkin seeds–that sort of thing.

    My guilty pleasure every now and then is to pick up low fat fudge bars, that run about 50- 60 cals. The danger here for me is that chocolate really used to be my thing; the more fruit I eat, the less of a craving for chocolate I have.

    We also got rid of not only regular cola, but the diet stuff, as well ( reading someplace that the carbonation can play tricks on your metabolism–but I can’t remember the source on this).

    The hubby drinks a load of zero-cal green tea, and I tend toward zero calorie lemon or orange-flavored water–and plain water. I also drink coffee with low-cal non-dairy creamer and sweetener, and while a lot of sources say that’s a no-no, it’s the one thing I am not giving up.

    We’re losing weight at about 1.5 to 2 lbs. a week and really look and feel much better.

    Hope this helps? Good luck!
