Summer has it pluses and minuses when it comes to eating better. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables - and produce stands pop up all over. But also barbecues, graduation parties, carnivals - all have their own temptations - and ice cream to cool off in the heat. Do I need to say more?
I've tried to be creative with the menus to make it more interesting and satisfying.
Here are a few of my favorites -
Chicken with Corn and Tomato Relish, Sauteed Spinach
Flatout Veggie Pizza with Grapes
Fish stick tacos with assorted fresh veggies
Egg with bacon on 1/2 English muffin, strawberries and blueberries
Chicken fajitas (there are some pieces of chicken under those peppers and lettuce)
Grilled Chicken with roasted squash and tomatoes
Chipotle Lime shrimp and veggies with roasted asparagus and yellow rice
One of my late night snacks to keep me out of the potato chips.
Barbecue Chicken Salad wraps with cheetos and grapes
Tuna Mac with peas and grapes
And my current favorite snack is some Jello sugar free instant pudding topped with fat free Cool Whip. I usually eat a few graham crackers with it.

The LulaRoe Perfect T hides the stomach pouch pretty well.
