I’ve lost a lot of weight over the last two years. The main thing that worked for me was changing my diet by eating “clean/healthy” and working out a lot (weight lifting/conditioning). So, here are healthy recipes I’ve found during my journey of losing weight and keeping it off. Some have been tested and approved by my husband and kids, some have not lol. I will reveal what was approved and what was not.

Also understand everyone has different taste in food. There may be things that I didn’t like, but you may and vice-versa. I suggest going on a healthy food adventure to see what works for you and your family.

I am not a vegan or vegetarian. I don’t have celiac disease nor am I sensitive to gluten. However, I am somewhat lactose intolerant (only one in my family). The recipes I share aim to be delicious, and low in overall calories. I pay attention to the amount of carbohydrates I eat and try to get most of my “carbs” from fruits, vegetables, potatoes, and rice. Pretty much from fruits and vegetables that grow and has minimal processing.

Hopefully you will find gems that you can make over and over again for you and your family.
