What are you eating?

I am addicted to dried cranberries right now. I keep buying them to use in our homemade granola bars but then I keep eating them before I get around to making the granola bars. LOL. At least they have fibre!

What are you snacking on lately?

I'm tying to eat more iron...so frozen burritos are a hit around here. I'm also eating iron fortified cereal more too. Ummmm...

Right now I'm eating those sour key candies. I keep buying them and eating so many that I burn my tongue! How silly!

I've been good today with snacks. Hummus, reduced fat Wheat Thins, Cheese & carrots.

I really want to be snacking on a brownie sundae though Wink

Tacos for dinner tonight sound good too.

Dang, I love those sour candies!

Have to decide on dinner.....something with chicken....

DH recently saw a nutritionist ($500! Thankfully his insurance pays.) and is on a pretty strict diet. He is diabetic, has high cholesterol, and is trying to get in better shape. So I am at a loss as to what to make that the whole family will eat. She gave him a few sample meal plans that I am still trying to wrap my brain around.

Sandra: good luck! My DH is on a heavy training schedule for triathlon season and I'm struggling with what to cook too.

I'm at a food low right now...nothing really sounds that good. I've been thinking about chocolate chip cookies for a couple weeks but haven't had it in me to make them yet (so obviously they haven't been calling my name too much). I will down a package of sour gummy worms but have resisted buying them for that reason Wink

Garlic bread and lemonade are pretty much the only things that don't sound disgusting right now. Healthy, huh?

Those both sound great to me! I've been having 1 big lemonade a day. So bad...but SO good. I don't normally drink juice (or sugar water, lol).

Usually my snacking is bad and sugary, but I have been trying to eat more fruit (bananas mostly since I have been getting bad leg cramps, yuck) and now I am eating some Goldfish. For dinner I am making chicken salad, because DH wants it.

I decided to fire up the BBQ for supper Smile Because it is like, 3 degrees above freezing. My BBQ is still surrounded by a couple feet of snow, but what the heck. The last time we BBQ'd was Christmas Day, and it was -35 C then, so today should be much nicer Smile

I'm doing baked potatoes and some grilled chicken breast on the BBQ. DH won't have the potato, but I'll put his grilled chicken in a spinach salad or something.

Change in plans, DS wanted eggs in a basket and that smelled so much better than the chicken did while it was cooking I made some for myself too (I have no doubt my meat aversion is the reason for my anemia).

I've been on a major strawberry kick lately, and apples as well. And I've been cutting out all the chocolate I'm used to eating which is sucky. I cook pretty simple, tonight was salmon patties (with lots of veggies inside), quinoa and carrots.

Grapes are pretty much fantastic ANY way - regular, frozen, even roasted Smile Try putting some on your campfire this summer! Yummy hot juices exploding in your mouth!
