Chicken Vegetable Stir Fry a la Your Daily Vegetable Intake April 29, 2010 Chicken Vegetable Stir Fry a la Your Daily Vegetable Intake I don’t know about you, but when I’m craving something healthy, that’s lower in fat and calories than my typical fare, I tend to think of a veggie stir fry (and salad; man have I got a great main course salad to share in the next couple days, but that, of course, is for another post). There’s just something about throwing multiple species, colors, and flavors of vegetable into a wok and cooking them up just so, that gets my taste buds a waterin’. Even my kids enjoy stir fry (although for some reason they like to have their rice separate from their meat and veggies). It could also be that I put a homemade chocolate chip cookie on a stick and dangle it in front of them promising a bite if they’ll just eat the dinner on their plates. So here’s what you’ll need to make your family smile AND feel good about their meal after the fact: Ingredients Needed: Now, on to the good stuff. And then I added the rest of my veggies.

212. Creamy Parmesan Corn | Simply Gourmet I love this side dish. I have always been a huge fan of corn and this dish is by far my favorite corn dish. I used to make this without bacon, but then we all know that bacon makes everything taste that much better. I like this recipe best cooked in a slow cooker for a few hours verses heating it up on the stove top. In the slow cooker it gets nice and creamy and the corn has a chance to drink in the flavors of the parmesan and cream cheese. Leftovers, if there are any, are the best. I have only used canned corn to prepare it, so if you try to use fresh corn please let me know. A simple side dish of corn turned into a gourmet treat for your family. Recipe: Creamy Parmesan Corn 3 cans of corn, drained 1 (8oz.) package of cream cheese, soft 1/2 stick of butter, soft 1 cup of parmesan cheese, finely grated 1/2 pound of bacon, cooked crispy Salt and Pepper to taste In a slow cooker add the above ingredients. Cook on high for 3 hours, stirring occasionally or on low for 6 hours. Serve immediately.

Gluten Free Quiche | Egg Recipes Calories Calories are just a unit of energy. If you eat more than you use you can gain weight, or lose it if you don't eat enough. How much you need depends on your weight, gender and how active you are, but it's around 2,000 a day. Carbs Carbs are a great source of energy and, excluding foods such as potatoes, are made from grains - like bread, pasta and cereal. Sugar We all deserve a treat sometimes, but try to limit your sugar intake. Fat We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. Saturates Saturated or "bad fats" are in beef, pork, chicken skin, butter, cream and cheese. Protein Protein helps our muscles to grow and repair, as well as providing you with essential amino acids.

Pizza Roll Ups These cheesy 5-ingredient pizza roll-ups come together so quickly and easily without the fuss. Perfect for snacking or game day! After making those mini deep dish pizzas, I’ve been on a major mini pepperoni kick. After all, I still have about 3 more bags of those pepperonis to use up after my last hoarding experience. And with a lingering can of crescent rolls I found in the back of my fridge, these epic roll-ups were created. Best of all, these roll-ups require just 5 ingredients. And if you can’t find those mini pepperonis, you can still whip these up with the regular-size ones. Oh and the string cheese. After you roll up these bad boys, these babies get baked to golden brown perfection… Slathered with buttery goodness. From there, all you have to do is dig in while that cheese is amazingly stringy, oozing with all that pepperoni goodness. Just be sure to double the batch for game day because I promise you – these will be the first to disappear! Ingredients Instructions Notes
