Healthy Fall Dinner Ideas

I know that lately I have been over sharing indulgent eating and drinking.  However, health is number one in my life.  I believe that living a healthier lifestyle 90% of the time is what works for me.  This allows me to treat my self once a week and take care of my health at the same time.

Moderation when it comes to indulgent things is key.  I do not believe in depriving my self of holidays, pizza and wine.  When I feel deprived, I tend to binge on the foods I eliminate from my diet.   

I wanted to share what a typical week of dinners looks like for us.  I tend to share my breakfast and lunch on Instagram a lot, I figured I would share my dinners on here every two weeks or so. We tend to eat a lean protein with a complex carb and veggies, lots of veggies on most week nights.

Here's how last week looked for us...
Monday: Olive oil massaged kale, roasted spaghetti squash and grilled chicken.
 Tuesday: Trader Joe's Chicken Jalapenos sausages, quinoa and steam veggies.
 Wednesday: Olive oil massaged kale, liquid aminos sauteed cabbage topped with black bean pasta.
 Thursday: Ground turkey Taco Salads...
Friday: Quiche made with leftovers.
Saturday:  We went to a Halloween party and had an early dinner at MOD Pizza.
 
 Sunday:  Was not feeling so hot after our fun Saturday...  Made chicken veggie soup with a side of salty pretzels.
As you can see, we focus on eating whole foods throughout the week, with a bit of fun foods on Saturdays.  

Remember; living a healthy lifestyle is not about deprivation, it is about upgrading your lifestyle.
