Platanos.

The Healthy Housewife – As I’ve mentioned many times before, Mexican food is one of my absolute favorites. Although it gets a bad rap for heavy, fat laden dishes, there are actually quite a few fresh and flavorful dishes you can opt for that won’t cause you to easily down 1,200 calories. One of my favorite side dishes besides… Read more

Its hot.

The Healthy Housewife – Its hot outside. I don’t know if I somehow just forget each year how hot Florida is capable of getting, or what, but somehow I am surprised EVERY summer how hot it gets!…and its only June.

Indulgence made over

The Healthy Housewife – I’m not one or ordering appetizers very often. I must admit though, whenever I’m at a restaurant and fried zucchini is on the menu. I am compelled to order it.
