Boneless Skinless Chicken breast.It will take on pretty much any flavor you add to it.Here is a recipe that is Approximately 240 calories,great protein source wonderful flavor. 4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.) 1/2 cup Thick 'N Chunky Salsa 1/4 cup Sour Cream 1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips 1/2 cup Kraft Mexican Style Finely Shredded Four Cheese Preheat oven to 400ºF. Place chicken on foil-covered baking sheet. Slice three cuts on top of each chicken breast with sharp knife. Top each chicken breast evenly with salsa, sour cream and tortilla chips. Bake 20 min. Remove from oven; sprinkle with cheese. Bake an additional 10 min. or until chicken is cooked through (165ºF). Also,vegetables. Steam your vegetables and add various spices. I make steamed broccoli all the time,i love broccoli raw as well.It gets old having bland broccoli even though it is one of my many favorite vegetables.In skillet after i steam it,i add some honey and some soy sauce.It doesn't take much.Stir to coat.It will add a sauce to the broccoli that is really yummy and sort of reminds me of a teryaki flavor. Rice: Add vegetables,and use brown rice instead of white rice. Potatoes: when making baked patatoes,use sweet patatoes,have each(you and your husband) a half of one,since they are pretty large in size.Wrap the halves in aluminum foil and bake,or grill if it's grilling season.Top with a drizzle of honey and some cinnamon.It's really good! As for regular patatoes,add garlic to your mashed potatoes.If you aren't a fan of garlic,boil the garlic in the water with your potatoes and when drained just remove them.They will give the flavor without overpowering you. Raw vegetables,many people shy away from raw veggies because of them not having such a tasteful flavor.I love raw vegetables.For raw vegetables,i just take some low fat plain yogurt(or you can use light sour cream) and add some chives and dill.This will give it flavor,if you let it sit int he fridge over night.It's a light dip for raw veggies,whole wheat crackers,or it's also good drizzled over salad for a dressing. I also make a mock mexican pizza.It's tasty.Turn on the broiler in your oven.Then take a whole wheat tortilla,and coat with 1/2 cup to 1 cup of refried beans,then top that with 1/4 cup of low fat cheese.Once the cheese gets nice and bubbly(don't let it burn) then take it out of the oven and top with light sour cream,chopped green onion,tomato and cut into slices.I love it. Also,on traditional tacos,instead of using regular hamburger,try ground chicken breast. Also,drink plenty of water.Cut out sodas,that's the main source of sugar,fat,and calories.Even if it is diet,it isn't good for you.Everything is ok in moderation though. :]

Aston Originally Answered: Why does it seem that most healthy foods are less tastier then other fattening unhealthy foods?
This is a myth. Some of the tastiest foods can be healthiest. Things like chicken breast, london broil (beef), pork tenderloin, carrots, apples, pears, and beans are among the tasty, healthy things out there. It takes some time to adjust to them though, because our heavily processed lives have us convinced that heavily-processed, unhealthy foods taste better. Also, fattening foods, when they have a lot of fat, salt, and sugar, tend to be addictive. Fat gives food a great texture, what food scientists call "mouth feel" and makes other foods more palatable. (You can use this to your advantage by cooking your veggies in a little olive oil.) Sugar isn't addictive, per se, but it doesn't have addictive properties. Like illicit drugs, sugar activitates the "pleasure" centers in your brain. It gives you a quick boost. Over time, your brain says "more please!" Salt is also tasty to human beings, partly because we need it to regulate our heartbeat. Of course, we don't need that much, no more than 500 mg. a day, 1200 mg. if you're really active, but the body will still take a lot of it in. However, cravings for salt do have some physiological basis and are often seen in those with adrenal disorders or low blood pressure. Note that pizza can be healthy, on occasion. Skip the toppings unless they're vegetables and blot any extra oil off with a napkin. You can have two medium slices, three really small slices, or one big slice. Ice cream can also be healthful, but most of us overdo it. First, get the low-fat or even fat-free kind. These types will take some getting used to, but afterwards, you won't know the difference, since manufacturers have learned how to make their ice creams creamier and richer. And then remember a serving size is a half-cup. That doesn't seem like a lot, but put it in a really small bowl and it will seem like plenty. You may have to adjust to that amount though! Burgers, however, really should be taken in moderation. Make them yourself with the leanest ground beef you can get, use whole wheat buns, pile on the vegetables, such as romaine lettuce, tomato, and onion, and use ketchup and mayo sparingly.

If you can eat a lot of fruit and vegies it would be a good start. Stay away from frying your food, broil or grill it instead. When you fill your plate, try to have 1/2 of it for vegies/salad, then the other half for meat and starches. These 3 things will go a long way to eating healthier.

Go to realage.com They have recipes and many food preparing ideas. Once you get away from high fat food it all will taste better. Count the calories if you want to know what you are eating. Eat more vegetables, eat celery and cucumbers. They have less energy in them than they take to digest. Believe me you can learn to cook good tasting meals that have less calories in them. I have been changing my diet since feb. and have lost 57 pounds! You can too.
