A Healthy(er) Appetite

Since posting about my post pregnancy weight loss woes, I have been inspired (thanks to many of my readers :)  To make a conscious effort to start eating better. After talking to my husband (it's important that you don't go it's much too hard to make separate meals), we have decided to change a few of our current eating habits...

*We have been getting rid of our less healthy snacks, like crackers and chips, and we are replacing them with things like dried fruit, cut veggies, and nuts.

*We are lowering the amount of meat based meals we consume and have decided to eat healthy meatless dinners at least 3-4 days a week. (we typically always have some sort of meat at dinner so this is a big improvement).

*We are attempting to only eat dessert every other day (this is the hardest one, because we have gotten into the habit of eating something sweet after dinner EVERYDAY!)

I have been browsing Pintrest and a few other great food based blogs for new healthy recipes and I have slowly been adding them to my permanent recipe collection.

Although I know healthy eating is a major key in living a happy long life, if it doesn't taste good I just can't make it a habit (sad but true). So, if you are anything like me, you will be happy to hear about my plan to start posting reviews about healthy recipes I have found online! I will let you know if I truly liked the dish and if it is something I would be willing to make again.

Up first we have these Black Bean & Sweet Potato Tacos from Style & Grace.

Honestly... I loved them! I always seem to forget how much I like sweet potatoes, they really do make this meal very tasty. Also, parring them with black beans and cilantro flavoring created a perfect combination of flavors. Definitely adding this to my recipe box!

Have you seen any great healthy recipes lately?

*Ps. I have made a goal to loose 5lbs by my birthday, which is exactly 1 month from today...I figured if I blogged about it I would be more inclined to stick to it. Wish me luck!
