ISO: Good Recipes

So I'm having this problem.

I know I have mentioned this before, but while I am doing really well with the whole exercise thing I am having issues with food.

I have two recipes that I like from back in my weight watchers days. One is for turnkey burritos and the other is that vegetable soup.

Now I am at a loss.

See, it isn't just me here. I have a husband and a roommate that I need to feed to. I can't make them eat salads and yogurt every single night.

Do you have any great healthy and tasty recipes? If so, please hook a lady up.

Mr. and I have posted a few recipes on Mr. and Mrs. Get Fit for simple things like tasty eggs, bean salsa, and snack mix. But we're more "seat of the pants" type of cooks. Throw in some lean protein, lots of steamed veggies, and whole-grain rice, and spices of all kinds. You can make a lot of good dinners with those basic building blocks.

A friend recommended Giada's orzo salad recipe and every time I've made it, I've gotten rave reviews. It's a tasty dish with carbs, protein, and veggies! It is my new summer favorite! http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,1977,FOOD_9936_30848,00.html

I just started a weight-loss "journey" (haha, I hate it when people say that) 5 weeks ago, with Weight Watchers, and am down 9.6 pounds! I have a bunch of recipes I've adapted to make healthier and tested on my eats-everything-and-never-gains-weight husband and two toddlers posted on my blog, if you want to check them out. http://healthylivingequalshappyfamilies.blogspot.com.
Good luck!!

I would TOTALLY eat salad and yogurt every night. Those are two of my favorite foods!

I just made an orgasmo couscous recipe. I made it with semolina couscous, but I saw whole wheat orzo in Whole Foods today. I'm going to post it on my site (www.intothesilentwater.blogspot.com) tonight. The Pioneer Woman has her favorite salad ever on her cooking blopg and I've made it a few times- it is, as she claims, sublime. Swap whole wheat pasta or that Barila Plus fortified stuff for the noodles. Yummy!

I have a 10 lbs in 6 weeks goal. I'll be reading along!
