Healthy family dinners

Rachel and I are looking for more ideas - healthy, lower fat, not too calorific, easy to prepare, most families will eat, not too expensive...a tall order!

Feel free to post your suggestions!

This site has some low GI meal plans. The dinner list is below ~

Grill your favourite lean meat or chicken and serve with potato, sweet corn and peas, OR

Stir fry some lean beef or pork strips and mixed vegetables and serve with fresh wheat noodles or Basmati or Doongara rice, OR

Prepare some lasagne with lean mince, fat reduced cheese and add 3-bean mix for extra variety, OR

Make your favourite curry and serve with Basmati or Doongara rice and pappadams, OR

Team a barbequed chicken with steamed sweet corn cobs, grainy bread roll and a tossed salad

Here are some yummy dinner recipes - I'm gonna try some. This site has more vegetarian options, which suits me fine.

The kids can always have larger servings and a dessert!

Leonie, Bill made this weeks menu without me, so I'm going to start here and make my list for next week. Thanks for all the great ideas!
