Whats For Dinner Besides Chocolate?

While I am surrounded by sugar and butter most days and am tempted to have chocolate for dinner (and breakfast and lunch), I do eat pretty healthy.

Here are some of my go-to savory favorite recipes. Some aren’t my creations but I am sharing them here (with credit!) as I make them frequently. They aren’t fancy but (like my desserts) are all about flavor.
In summer I eat lots of salads and load them up with whatever veggies I find at the market that look good. I add them raw or roast them in big batches, refrigerate them and throw some into my salad. My salads are “sort through the refrigerator” creations. Toss it all with a good vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of Maldon salt and I am set. Cook extra veggies and lean proteins while you are preparing dinner and you’ll have enough for lunch and even dinner the next day.

In the winter I keep my freezer stocked with soups and pasta sauce. I store them in paper quart size ice cream containers I get at a Chinese restaurant supply store. They stack well and are compostable. I defrost them for a quick easy healthy meal.

I notice if I sneak some veggies into my breakfast I eat more of them throughout the day. Roasted carrots, cherry tomatoes and/or sweet potatoes with a fried egg and some Maldon salt is a great way to start the day! I will add some leftover brown rice If I have some. Or a green smoothie is a good way to get those veggies in early in the day.
