I placed 1 small (FROZEN) steak in drip pan. Added sliced sweet potatoes and sliced onion. Baked in Nuwave Oven 10 minutes, turned all over and baked another 10 minutes.I did the rice in a rice cooker. The rice and the steak and potatoes all cooked about the same length of time.  Meanwhile I prepared lettuce, tomato,and other salad ingredients. Served on a colorful plate.  LOL I try to eat healthy AND try to make it as easy, simple, fast, and uncomplicated as possible. Yes, the steak was frozen when I started and no, I did not thaw it out first. Bottom photo shows food on drip pan in the Nuwave oven. I cook it all together.

*My methods of cooking or food choices may not be suitable for everyone. However, I’m eating healthier than I did. I added no oil or salt to anything in  this meal.

Since I’ve cut back on bread intake, I seldom treat myself to waffles.  I had fruit, non-dairy topping, and canned blueberry pie filling on hand. So, yes—I did it.  LOL (and yes, overdid it, too!) One good thing about waffles, you can prepare a few and freeze the extras)

Rather simple to make with packaged mix and canned pie filling. Chop the fruit and place in a bowl or add to top of waffles when ready to serve. Add syrup, if desired. I included photo of both.

I just couldn’t stand it any longer! LOL I was hungry for watermelon and decided to cut it today. Oh, well—I’ll have plenty for July 4th. LOL
 I cut about half the watermelon, removed rind and seed, cut into chunks, and bagged. Doing it that way takes less room in the refrigerator and makes it easier to “nibble”. LOL  I filled 2 quart bags with watermelon chunks in addition to the serving I included photo of.
I usually don’t add salt to things but I did sprinkle with salt and pepper (LOL—I like pepper) today. Probably won’t add salt as I nibble though. I didn’t add but a tiny bit to it.
After I eat the two quart bags I prepared, I’ll cut the other half of the watermelon. Watermelon is good to eat on a hot day to help cool off. At least I’ve found that is one of the best things that really helps me. Watermelon is a healthy thing to eat but we need to be aware that it is considered to be a “sweet”.  Be aware of that, especially if you are diabetic or if you help prepare meals for someone that is. 
Thanks for reading my blog and you are welcome to share it.

I baked (yes, baked) the chicken hot dogs yesterday since I was baking a chicken breast anyway. See My Food Diary June 28, 2012 for photo, etc. 
I cut one chicken hot dog in half, placed each on a croissant with lettuce and tomato.  Fruit salad can be made with any fruits you have.  I had kiwi, strawberries, mandarin oranges,and banana today. I don’t always add salad dressing but today I did use low-fat Thousand Island Dressing. Super easy, fast, and healthy.
Thank you for reading my blog.
*My methods or ingredients may not be for everyone. I added no salt or oil. croissant was less bread than a hot dog bun. I keep a food diary for medical purposes—my own choice.

I baked the chicken and some chicken hot dogs (have hot dogs tomorrow), in Nuwave Oven. Chicken breast was frozen when I started baking. I baked 10 minutes, turned over, baked another 10 minutes.

While meat baked, I tore lettuce leaves and prepared washed veggies (you may slice or chunk, your preference). After chicken was baked, I cut into pieces and added to the bowl. Toss and it’s done! Easy, quick, light for this hot weather, and delicious.

Photo of veggies: Yummy veggies I got last week. Enjoyed, enjoyed, enjoyed! LOL Thanks for sharing with me!  Now, (lol) when are the tomatoes ready (or anything else) ?????? Just had to say it—I’m bad, huh? LOL

*I eat healthier than before. Added NO oil or salt. Meat can be prepared in various ways but I just prefer NuWave. My food choices or method of preparation may not be suitable for everyone.

(My third time to try to get this posted! It’s saved but it’s not—have to reload photos, do tags, etc. :()

Used Nuwave Oven to bake frozen fish with veggies. I baked (fish and veggies are all in one pan) for 10 minutes, turn all over, continue to bake 10 minutes more. Wash lettuce, cucumber, and tomatoes. Tear lettuce, slice or cut cucumber and tomatoes. Toss. Serve.

I keep a food blog for health reasons, my choice. What I prepare is easy, fast, and healthy. Well, at least I am eating healthier. *May not be suitable for everyone.
