When you have everything you need to cook a planned meal your evening goes smoother, less stress and a faster home made dinner.

For a healthier dinner be sure to add fresh leafy green vegetables to your meals.

A Few healthy choice meals:

1. Lean meat turkey dinner, yellow squash and cheese casserole, and a nice spinach salad with oil and vinegar salad dressing.

2. Baked salmon with lemon, sweet potatoes, snow peas and a nice leafy green garden salad.

3. Large leafy green salad with tomatoes, onions, carrots, chopped up chicken and topped off with shredded cheese sprinkled with flax seeds or sunflower seeds.

Drinking a four ounce glass of red wine with dinner will help with digestion, settling stomach upset, and help you relax with a better nights sleep.

Remember an after dinner walk around the block before bed will spike up your metabolism and help to work off some of that unwanted unhealthy flab gathering around the un-kept mid-line.
