I need some healthy meal ideas! I don't feel like cooking, and just don't seem to have any great ideas. DH cooks a lot, but lately it's been a lot of meat and cured stuff like ham and bratwursts. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Please, give me some ideas!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

I'm not much help -- I've been eating a lot of pizza rolls and peanut butter sandwiches. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
You could try things like pasta and salad -- make up a batch ahead of time, then you can just get it out whenever you're hungry. Soups are great for that too. If you keep a lot of fruit on hand, you always have a ready-made healthy snack available.

As in "healthy" food? What's that? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
We had baked beans and rice for dinner tonight, tomorrow night I'm making <a href="http://www.kraftfoods.com/main.aspx?s=recipe&m=recipe/knet_recipe_display&recipe_id=106252" target="_blank">grilled bruschetta chicken</a> and saffron rice (much easier than in sounds...).

Hmm, lets see...<br><br>
We have been eating lots of grilled foods, salmon, chicken, veggie kabobs.<br><br>
Homemade tacos are pretty healthy.<br><br>
I have been making meals from lots of snacks piled together...<br><br>
I'm on a huge frozen grapes kick.<br><br>
Raw carrots are ultra yummy these days for me.<br><br>
My grandma makes me cucumbers soaked in vinegar with sugar so its sour with a teeny bit of sweet...those are delish.<br><br>
My latest fav snack attack is triscuits with salsa and cheese. YUM! Spread some triscuits around on a plate, top with salsa and a bit of cheese and micro for about a minute.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy"><br><br>
And if I could eat sushi every meal I probably would. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I'm eating a lot of yoghurt ('cause it's cold in the heat), and lots of berries and summer fruits. But tonight I derailed and had fries and a DQ Buster Bar. Yum... Don't do that too often, though.<br><br>
We're often grilling these days, because it's too hot to use the oven.

I'm craving red meat right now, so I just made a big pot roast with a lot of root veggies and am hoping to eat on left overs today and hopefully tomorrow too.<br>
I'm also eating a lot of tomatoes. I put them on just about anything. Or just eat them sliced with a sprinkle of salt as a snack <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">
