Alternative "dinners"

Bignuf Bignuf
Someone just asked about having "pancakes for supper". We often PLAN to do a "breakfast"...as an alternative to meat and such, at least once a week.

Another alternative we love is a salad day (yes, you can do salad and bread-sticks or some other healthier carb). It has helped us loose weight and get better cholesterol and such.

There are a BILLION things you can put into a salad...from fruits to nuts, veggies to candied or jellied fruits and nuts.

It is ALL good.

Anyone else have any ideas about "alternate" healthy options for dinner???

I quite often whip up a little butter beans with garlic, olive oil, chilli flakes, anchovies and tomato for dinner. Chop it all about the size of the beans or smaller (garlic) toss it around a hot pan and eat it with crusty bread!

We do sandwiches sometimes at home (usually BLTs), and recently we did a night with just different kinds of salad (green salad, quinoa salad, and tuna salad). We generally do pretty well with mixing meals with beef, chicken, pork, and vegetarian entrees. We do stuff like black beans over rice often...

I honestly don't pay attention to what counts as low-carb and such. I've just been raised to have a variety and eat my green veggies (and smothering veggies with cheese or hollandaise all the time doesn't count.)

We enjoy just fixing a plate of cold stuff during the summer like , pieces of pepperoni, cheese, fruit, veggie bites, some crackers, etc, and feed each other. This is especially fun when we are getting to have naughty nekkid playtime when the house is empty.

We both like oatmeal, but since our work schedules are different, we rarely eat breakfast together. So sometimes we have it for dinner instead.

Stir fry in it's many and sundry variations. Also just getting some really nice cheese, really good fruit and some veggies, maybe some kind of dip made with fresh yogurt or hummus and beautiful bread and having a snacky kind of meal.

Quiche is a good healthy dinner as well, and it translates very well into leftovers for breakfast or lunch the next day. At least the way I make quiche is healthy (I'm not so big into the cream) If you search my blog you can find the recipe for it: bigsislittledish.wordp ress.com
