A few weeks ago, Cheryl devoted several posts to her recent weight loss and what she learned, etc. etc. A lot of what she said made me think about what I am doing to stay healthy.
So...I have started working on the exercise thing. My Hubby and I try to go walking together. When he can't go, I still try to do it on my own or do a cardio work out a la Lesile Sansone. Then in the evenings we do some weight training/conditioning. It's been so much fun to do together! We both feel we're getting a good workout and we are enjoying the time together.
Next...and this is where you come it people. I'm trying to make sure we have healthy eating choices in our home. I'm trying to buy more fruits and veggies and am focusing on eating them at every meal. I like the effect this is having on our bodies (I feel healthier) and it seems to be a nice thing for my pocketbook too (fresh veggies and fruits seem to cost less than all that other junk...go figure!). My new goal is to reduce our intake of meat to 2 - 3 meals a week. I don't want to go about this is an unsmart way and I also want to make sure that we are loving the food we eat. Yes, we are a family that enjoys to enjoy great food...and I'd like to keep it that way. So...here's what I want to know. What are your favorite vegetarian meals and where do you like to look for vegetarian recipes (web, cookbooks, whatever!)? We're not trying to go vegetarian or vegan or anything...I just want to see if we can reduce the amount of meat we eat. Is this making sense? So...what are you suggestions/thoughts?
Let me hear you, people!
