Meals to try

I mentioned in a previous post that I'm in a food rut.  Also, I think it's clear to many from my other posts that I strive to make healthy, balanced meals.  I'm not a total nazi about food (because I LOVE baked goods), but I'm pretty health conscious.  I've been trying to make a couple vegetarian meals each week, and have made it a point to incorporate a healthy amount of vegetable into each "meaty" meal (which I should clarify are mostly lean meats - turkey and chicken).

Also, a few years ago, Jeff lost 50 lbs and maintained his weight loss for a couple years.  It's been a challenging year, and he's gained a few pounds back and is looking to kick off 2013 with getting back to his lower weight.  

Luckily, weight loss is a common New Year's resolution, so the food websites I frequent have been posting a lot of quick and healthy meals.  I'm hoping to try at least one new recipe each of the next few weeks.
