With the arrival of Ginger, I have found myself strapped for time! I L*O*V*E cooking but honestly lately it's quiet difficult to cook like I used to, PLUS I'm trying to loose 60 pounds so I have been trying to eat really healthy. I am starting my weight loss counter at my pre-pregnancy weigh with Ginger which I reached within a month of her birth and am so thankful for that little head start. I am pleased to announce I have lost 2 pounds since then so 58 more to go!
I just thought I would share 2 ideas with you for healthy side dishes or snacks that I make all the time for myself and for little Milton!
I L*O*V*E strawberries!!!!! So I have discovered that a few sliced up strawberries mixed with some yogurt works great when you are craving sweets. It's really almost as good as a dessert! So whenever I am craving sweets and get tempted to grab a cookie I whip this up instead.
I have been using Dannon light and fit yogurt lately. It's only 80 calories!
I also love sweet potatoes and they are so healthy! So I peel them, chop them, coat them in olive oil, salt and pepper and bake them for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
You've got a really tasty, really easy snack or side dish. Milton loves these too!!
