Healthy Eating

Are you trying to eat healthy? Me too. It's not easy. Especially when one enjoys cooking & baking as much as I do. It also complicates things when you have a family to feed. Don't get me wrong, I want my family to eat healthy too. I definitely limit their "junk" intake. But when I'm really trying to count calories, my meal and portions can be very different than theirs. And let's face it, my skinny, minny kids shouldn't have to count calories with me!

I just started the 17 day diet. Are you familiar with it? It's very sensible and not "faddish". But...and here's the clincher, it's low carb. Ughhh! But I can do anything for 17 days. And a good sugar detox never hurt anyone, (right???).

For my dinner tonight, I was able to make just a "me" portion using these handy dandy Ziploc bags.

I had some tilapia and broccoli that I seasoned with some Mrs. Dash.

Then I put everything in the steamer bag in the microwave for 6 minutes.

It was tasty and fully cooked. It didn't tasted nuked at all.

I think this method will be a great way to customize my meal without any extra work!

Blessings to you,

I do drink a small juice glass of milk everyday. And instead of regular Ice Cream I get the skinny cow bars or sandwiches. <3 ya!

  2. Somehow, I didn't know these things existed. I'm *trying* to diet too, so, I'm gonna have to give this a try!

  3. Mommy and Daddy will need to bring identification (drivers
