Once upon a time, I used to eat nutritionally void, processed food. They were low fat and low calorie, but they were highly processed.
I then learned the importance of proper nutrition and focused on eating as much normal/real food as possible.
While I still try to to this, I'm finding myself leaning more towards the "make something tasty fast" category at night. I always make a conscious effort to incorporate veggies and protein, but it usually ends up in the form of pasta.
Last night's dinner was no different: WW bow ties, spinach, broccoli, sun dried tomatoes, alfredo sauce and parm.
I think I'm in a cooking rut. I used to loooove trying new recipes, and we rarely ate the same thing twice within the same month. This is not the case anymore.
Staples of late include: Sweet potato/black bean enchiladas, rotisserie chicken and salad, salmon-broccoli-rice, pasta of some sort, burgers and salad, BBQ something.
I picked up this months Clean Eating and Cooking Light magazines at Costco a few weeks ago, so I shall peruse there to come up with some new ideas.
I'd also be forever grateful if you'd link some new recipes in the comments section.
My ideal recipe: Lotsa veg and protein, and makes enough for leftovers for lunch the next day.
