Even though I’ve been working on developing a healthier lifestyle, I’m not always sure what to cook. To be honest, most of my at-home meals are pretty bland. For example, I’m having plain steamed broccoli and shrimp for lunch today. Ok I don’t even know if they go together but it is microwave prep friendly- which sadly is why I made it this morning.
But when I’m not in such a rush, I actually like to try the recipes from my latest obsession: WomenHeart’s ALL HEART Family Cookbook. Being healthy isn’t just about watching your weight which I feel a lot of us young women forget when we try to shed pounds by doing detrimental things to our bodies. For example, I finally gave up fake sugar and decided to opt for limited quantities of the real deal instead of ingesting chemicals. And I would never, ever do the Atkins Diet again. The All Heart cookbook isn’t necessarily focused on losing weight- but it is focused on eating nutritious foods that’s good for your heart and body. The weight loss, of course, follows when you eat a truly healthy diet. The book contains over 170 recipes- most that I still have to try but have enjoyed reading about and looking at pictures of.
