Healthy QUICK Family Meals

I know most of us parents out there have run across the problem of trying to figure out easy, quick and healthy dinners for our families.
It's not that uncommon to dread that time of day. You're tired, you don't want to spend your whole evening in the kitchen making a dinner that will probably just get whined about and maybe even turned down.

My suggestion: Don't over think healthy meals. Healthy can be quick, it can be pre-made a lot of the times and get your family involved to make the process easier.

Whatever your usual favorites are, they can usually be modified to be a healthier version.

Does your family like burgers? Try grilling up some turkey burgers on the BBQ. It takes minutes to cook. Meanwhile get the whole wheat buns ready (perfect thing for little ones to help with) put your condiments on, stack them high with veggies. My kids and I like to have spinach, tomatoes, pickles, avocados and low-fat cheese on ours. Then when the burgers are done you can pile them on... and you're done. Pair it with an easy basic salad and call it dinner.

Same goes for tacos, pizza, chicken sandwiches... all of the family favorites can be made healthy and in no time at all.

If you've got picky eaters at home, try getting them involved in the cooking process. Also try compromise with vegetables. For example I make a spinach salad every night and also include vegetables in the meal. The kids are allowed if they wish to subtract one vegetable from the meal. My son doesn't care for tomatoes, so he asks for his burgers and salads to not have them. My daughter doesn't care for avocado's so I subtract that from her meals. The rest of the vegetables are not negotiable.

Summer Weight Loss

As we get closer and closer to Summer, I am emailed on a daily basis about how to shed weight and get toned for the warmer weather. Although I think it can be important to get healthy by losing unhealthy weight, I think we need to look at the bigger picture here. Being healthy and fit JUST for Summer is not ideal. Being healthy and fit all year round to have energy, prolong life, have a better quality of life AND look good should be priority.

With all that said, here are a few easy every day tips to get ready for the warmer months ahead... and beyond that.

1. Eat often. When I say often, I really do mean often. Every 2-3 hours, 6 times a day.

2. Eat small. Eat often, but eat small meals or snacks. Ranging from 200-300 calories each time (depending on your personal caloric needs).

3. Crowd out the bad foods with good foods. Fill up with salad & veggies before digging into that hamburger. You will consume less of the unhealthy food because you're already full of the healthier food.

Try these few tips... and like always, if you're not sure where you're having issues, please contact me and I can help guide you to your own personal health goal.
