Just curious ... what's everybody having for dinner tonight? I haven't planned ours yet and wanted to get some healthy ideas (instead of indulging in my *unhealthy* ideas).

Well my dinner tonight is very healthy (chicken lasguana from a box and probably a piece (small) of garlic bread! ack, bad Courtnie - but I will stay within my calories at least) but anyway the other night I made something yummy:

1 can nibblets corn
1 can mushrooms (pieces and stems)
onion
red pepper (I didnt have this in my the other night, but had it in there before)
1-2 tbsp low fat margine (or something similar)
some kind of garlic seasoning

I fried it all up for a few mintues, and it was SUPER good! I had it as a side but the next day I cooke up some whole wheat pasta and added some hot sauce and mixed it all together and it was even better! haha

Dinner tonight is an egg beaters omelet, with a MorningStar Farms veggie sausage pattie and some part-skim cheddar thrown in. I have some green beans in my fridge that I need to eat too.

I will probably have a weird, weird mishmash of food for dinner. I usually get home from the gym and have a slice of turkey breast, then part of a green pepper or something with some hummus. Tonight I have some leftover lite mac and cheese in the fridge, so I will probably finish that off, then have sugar free jello for dinner.

Just a simple supper - it's pretty hot out, so I tossed some chicken breasts in a garlic/oil marinade earlier and will BBQ them. I'm planning to serve them with a corn and tomato salad and some asparagus with lemon. YUM!

Husband has promised to make fish (he makes the absolute best fish). He probably will lightly dust it with seasoned flour and saute in a non-stick pan with butter spray or a (very)little olive oil. My favorite light way to make crunchy chicken, lean pork, or fish is to dip the meat in light ranch dressing or mayo diluted just a tiny bit with milk, and then dip in seasoned bread crumbs (till lightly coated - not gunky), spray the tops lightly with butter spray and then bake until done (about 45 minutes for chicken or pork, about 20 minutes for thick fish).

We also went to the farmer's market so there's plenty of fresh veggies to go with and fruit for dessert.

Tonight was my 'other' night (no meat). I chopped up vegetables (onion, zucchini, red pepper, broccoli, cauliflower) and sauted them in enough fat free chicken broth to keep them moist. Then I added cubed tofu, then minced garlic, adding a little bit of broth at a time as it evaporated. Tossed all that with cooked spagetti pasta, then with the juice from one lemon, and a couple of tablespoons of Parmesan cheese. Ended up being 387 calories, so no dessert.

I love anything with lemon and Parmesan cheese.

That's it, I AM coming to your house for dinner ;)

I love fish. I'm crazy about it. Just had some yesterday for lunch, in fact. Thanks for the ideas on how to fix it.

Wow! Five superfoods on one plate! WTG!

The family's having leftover tuna patty sandwiches.

I haven't had any real dinner yet. I can't decide what to eat. I'm hungry, but nothing sounds good to me. I wish someone would cook for me. I'd eat it if someone else made it. Bah!

Tonight I've got a red bean, coconut and cashew stew type thing (with other veggies like carrots in there too) with some brown rice and green beans and some red wine :). Possibly some strawberries for dessert.

Tonight I'm carbing up, so I'm having pasta with a tomato, spinach and basil sauce with a little bread, and I'll have strawberries, muesli and yoghurt for dessert.

I counted 6!

Tofu 1, shitake mushrooms, orange pepper 2, onions 3 , garlic (still 3 since onions counted), bok choy 4, black bean sauce 5 - over brown rice 6.

Since she has the bok choy... I'd count the orange pepper with pumpkin instead of spinach.. It fits both places. :dizzy:

Oh and the shitake mushrooms are a great choice too!

Yum! Thanks for the ideas. I tend to get stuck in particular ruts. I made salmon (with honey and lime juice), sweet potatoes, and broccolini.

It's so nice to see a variety of foods (and lots of veggies) in everyone's plans!

Here's my dinner:

Quinoa with 'stir-fried' veggies and tofu (baby bok choy, red heirloom onions, garlic, celery, red cabbage and nigari tofu, cooked in veggie broth) with a ginger-orange sauce (no fat or sugar)

Sliced heirloom tomatoes with a fresh lemon-basil sauce (no fat or sugar)

1 Rogue 'Extra Bitter' beer ;)

Tonight I had shepherd's pie made with lots of veggies topped with basil/oregano tomatoes, ground turkey, and mashed sweet potatoes. YUM. One of my favorites.
