    I myself do not eat a lot of meat. I find it is heavy. When I do it is in small amounts 4 oz. maybe 3 times a week. I eat allot of fish, eggs, beans, and tofu to get my protein. I never order or buy any processed meat such as sausage, hot dog, packaged lunch meat but will of course eat it if it is all there is at an event. Some of my normal meals are;
    stir frys with egg,
    salads with tuna or chicken salad,
    pastas,
    beans n rice
    asian dishes.
    I try and eat most of my veggies raw, or par boiled. I eat mostly whole grains. The best advice I can give you is to really get educated on what is in the food you buy. Look on the package, it is all there.

    Fav. snacks
    baked chips n salsa
    cheese n crackers or bread
    bacon wrapped scallops or shimp broiled
    ham, aparugus, creamcheese n chive with asparugus rolled, you can even choose to wrap in thin layers of crossant dough-you don’t need much then just bake till dough is done
    fruit salad
    frozen fruit in summer
    100% fruit bars no sugar added
    raw veggies w low fat ranch
    melon w/ cheese n ham on top secured w/ pick (slice cheese very thin)

    here is a great site to really inform n has recipies

    Ways that helped me to a healthy lifestyle way of eating:

    Nutritious foods that are high in nutrients and low in fat and sugar (no sugar, if possible).

    Substituting sugar and oil (partially, depends on the recipe) by using applesauce and pureed fruits in baked goods.

    Eating veggies as the main dish and lean meats (including beans), fish and chicken (very little red meat) as a side dish.

    Eating whole wheat rice, pasta and breads is good as a side dish or as part of the main dish, as long as it is not high in fat, but is high in fiber. Lots of times, breads and pasta will say its wheat when it isn’t whole wheat; something to watch out for.

    Eating 3 meals plus 2 snacks a day is good.

    Staying away from fast foods and tv dinners laden with fat and sugar.

    Staying away from mayonnaise, in sandwiches or salads especially, use mustard instead. For dips and salads, use non fat to low fat yogurt. Or used tomato based dressing or dip (like salsa)

    Use monosaturated fats like olive oil, not polyunsaturated or saturated fats.

    Key is finding what kinds of foods you like; going to the American Heart Association website as a guideline.

    Then looking at recipes that appeal to you.

    I made a binder, with plastic sheet pocket protector page with index pages (salads, meats, side dishes, desserts, etc.). I’d try the recipe, if it’s good, it stays, if not, its tossed.

    Tuna cakes
    1 can tuna, drained (I like the one packed in water)
    1/4 tsp Dijon mustard
    1/4 cup bread crumbs (I use leftover whole wheat bread and grind it up in the food processor)
    1 egg (or 1/4 egg substitute)
    onion (optional)

    Mix together, using pie plate with crumbs in it (2 inchs thick or more), make 4 to 6 patties, (or one big one if you want a big tuna burger sandwich), cover each one with the crumbs.

    Place in preheated, oiled pan.

    Brown on one side then flip it, to brown on other side.

    Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
    1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed

    1/2 green bell pepper, cut into 2 inch pieces
    1/2 onion, cut into wedges
    OR
    Frozen pepper stir fry, thawed (red, yellow, green pepper slices and onion slices, available in the freezer section at the grocery).

    3 cloves garlic, peeled
    1 egg (or egg substitute equivalent to1-1.5 eggs (1/4-3/8 cups))
    OR
    1 Tbsp. ground flax seed simmered in 3 Tbsp. water Stir together until thick and gelatinous.

    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1 tablespoon cumin
    1 teaspoon Thai chili sauce or hot sauce
    1/2 cup bread crumbs (maybe in addition, add 1/2 cup cooked brown rice) (possibly use rolled oats instead of bread crumbs)

    Note:
    How to keep them from falling apart. Rinse the black beans and dry them off before mashing them. Use the food processor for the onion, garlic and pepper mixture and then strain juices through a fine strainer to remove any excess water. Put back in food processor.

    Blend everything in the food processor, beginning with onions, peppers, and garlic, bread crumbs, eggs and spices and then the beans last.

    Note: Put a little oil on your hands when shaping the patties to prevent sticking.

    Divide mixture into four patties. (Made them smaller, ended up with 6 and served them with a “dipping sauce” salsa.)

    For Grilling: Freeze patties and grill them frozen.

    Directions
    For grilling: Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil a sheet of aluminum foil.. Place patties on foil, and grill about 8 minutes on each side. If baking,

    For Oven Baking: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and lightly oil a baking sheet. Place patties on cookie sheet, and bake about 10 minutes on each side.

    Homemade Chicken or Fish Nuggets
    This was originally used for fish but I have also used it for chicken nuggets the same way, I just cook them a little longer:

    2 or 3 Tilapia filets
    1 egg
    about 1/2 c milk
    about 1/3 c parmesan cheese (grated)
    1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
    1/2 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
    about 1 cup bread crumbs

    Preheat over to 400. Cut the fish (or chicken) up into bite size pieces. Put the bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and parmesan into a ziploc bag. Mix the egg and the milk in a good sized bowl and add the fish (or chicken) nuggets to the bowl.

    Take the nuggets out of the milk/egg mixture a few at a time and drop into the bag. Shake around until well coated and then place on baking sheet (you can grease it but I usually just line with foil). Do this until they are all coated and bake about 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your nuggets, slightly longer for chicken. They are good!

    Total Time: 1 hr
    Makes: 3 1/2 dozen

    Ingredients:
    1 1/2cups all purpose flour
    1tsp. baking soda
    1 1/2tsp. ground cinnamon
    1/2tsp. salt
    1/4tsp. ground nutmeg
    3/4cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1/2cup Splenda
    1/4cup margarine, softened
    3/4cup applesauce (unsweetened)
    1/4cup egg substitute or 1 egg
    2Tbsp. fat-free milk
    2tsp. vanilla
    3cups quick or old fashioned uncooked oatmeal
    1cup diced (can use food processor, much easier) dried mixed fruit or raisins

    Preparation:
    1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray cookie sheets with cooking spray or grease lightly with cooking oil.

    2. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg; mix well. In large bowl, beat sugars and margarine until well blended. Add applesauce, egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir in flour mixture’ mix well. Stir in oats and dried fruit; mix well. (Dough will be moist.)

    3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared cookies sheets.

    4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store in tightly cover container.

    Notes:
    These cookies are moist and chewy; low in fat and low in sugar. I like them better the next day when they are moister and even more flavorful.

    Plan on try making these with powdered flaxseed (good source of omega-3 fatty acids).

    So I am a health freak and eat only vegetables & lean proteins! My all time favorite recipes would have to be… clam sauce (made with olive oil, not butter), ratatoullie, puttenesca sauce, grilled vegetables, grilled salmon, buffalo burgers & grass-fed beef burgers!!!
    Some good healthy snacks that I regularly are = cherry tomatoes, sliced bell peppers, cabbage with mustard or tomato paste or olive tapenade, straight tomato paste from a can (absolutely delicious!!), sheets of nori, kelp noodles & lettuce & mustard
    If you are interested in my favorite dishes I mentioned above, google their names & you will be able to find millions of recipes!!! 🙂
