I have a lot of clients tell me that cooking dinner for your family when you are the only one trying to eat healthy is too hard. I used to think that too. Who wants to cook 2 dinners?
I don’t cook 2 dinners and I make meals as simple as possible. Tonight I made Goulash which is basically pasta and ground hamburger, onion, celery, tomato sauce, bacon and seasoning.
I don’t eat pasta very often on my eating plan so here is what I did. I cooked the bacon, ground beef, veggies, tomato sauce and seasoning first while pasta cooked on its own in another pan.
Then I scooped out my serving and put it in a bowl and set it aside. I added the cooked pasta to the pan and let it cook some more and served it up, adding fresh tomatoes on top of everyone’s plate.
I also had leftover salad and Italian dressing. Not hard at all and I did not cook 2 meals.
I do this with most of my meals. Although my Dad who has always been a meat and potatoes kind of guy is now eating more vegetables than he ever has, and even asks for seconds. Who knew? This can happen in your family too.
