Before I give you this really easy and yummy healthy recipe, I want to remind you that eating healthy and delicious is simple, it just takes a little bit of work.  You have to do your research.  You have to look for recipes and strategies to make your favorite meals healthy.  The easiest thing to do, as I always say, is take one day of the week and look through cooking recipes, cookbooks, online etc.  I have tons of recipes on my site under "NUTRITION" so take some time every week to browse through them.  Here is one:  Healthy Recipes.
