I'm always looking for new ideas on healthy recipes for the family that are healthy. I have the UNhealthy recipes down pat, though LOL

I did come up with the most amazing vegetable sauce recipe. (I don't eat peas and carrots, but I can if they are in this sauce.) It's not super healthy, but at least it's packed with vegetables

1/3 cup of flour (I use a mix of almond meal and brown rice flour)
1/3 cup melted butter
3 cups milk
1 t salt
1 pinch of nutmeg
1 package of vegetable soup mix
1 cup of fresh broccoli (I just use the tops!)
1/2 cup carrots, sliced (I use baby carrots)
1/2 fresh green peas

In a medium saucepan, on low heat, mix flour, melted butter, milk, salt, and nutmug until smooth and well-blended. Add in 1 package of vegetable soup mix and mix well.

Add in vegetables to taste. We use broccoli, peas, and carrots. The mixture should be thick, more like vegetables coated in the white sauce than soupy.

(the butter is really what makes this bad...)

Makes 12 Servings

What is Quinoa? I guess I could google.

I also love turkey meatloaf. I dont eat beef and pork so turkey it is!

I have not made my own sauce yet, I should try out your recipe Lost! Thank you for sharing!

I really would like to start cooking more, my own stuff rather then preparing things I bought in the store. Soon!

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

I personally like to cook things that I can freeze/save so that I don't have to cook every day

That is one thing I do not like to do. I do not like to cook and freeze. I feel like the meals would sit in the freezer. And I get alot of joy out of cooking so I would much rather cook every night.

Ah, you are the opposite of me then LOL I can't manage cooking every night with everything else we have going on! We actually ended up missing my daughter's ballet yesterday because we got caught up in cooking (on a tuesday when we usually do most cooking on a monday or thursday). I felt SO bad. We took her to the movies to make it up to her, though. But I feel like I eat healthier if I plan meals and cook extra than if I cook every night (because then I am rushed and the meals end up not-so-healthy).

I think I have posted this here before, but we are all really liking this chili recipe. We also really love this soup and just toss in whatever veggies we feel like. Lately I have gotten addicted to these oven fries.

Whenever I need a quick, easy meal, I like to just make a pasta with whatever veggies we have (onions, frozen broccoli, carrots, asparagus, peppers, whatever), some chicken if I feel like it, and then just toss everything together with olive oil and garlic powder.

That chili recipe looks yummy!!

I like cooking every night, but the twins are still at the age where sometimes they need me more than usual and a big meal just doesn't happen (or it could, but we wouldn't eat until way late, and that doesn't work for us). So sometimes when I make something that can easily be frozen I make 2 and freeze one. Then on those crazy days I have something I can throw in the oven and we won't starve.

I need to invest in a crock pot. I want to make so many things with that. And I want to smell what ever is cooking all day.

That is so funny Lost. I feel like I would eat WORSE if I did that because my "frozen prepared meals" would be a pizza!
