Healthy Recipe Challenge

Just came up with an idea that I think will be a fun way to try healthy recipes to keep the weight loss journey fun and interesting.  The challenge is to try one new healthy recipe a week.  It doesn't matter if it is a tried and true family recipe, a recipe clipped from a newspaper or magazine, or one from the internet.  Anyone want to try the challenge with me?  It would be a fun, creative way to exchange recipes.  The fun part is that it would be using our creative juices in many ways.  First the recipe, cooking the recipe and making your own twists on the recipe if desired.  Then photographing the recipe to get practice with our cameras and then eating it of course.  You can rate the recipe if you wish and say if it's a keeper or not.  Then if you want to get really creative, a person could scrapbook the recipes in either a layout, mini album or book.  Sound like fun?   Here are the ones I have posted for the first two weeks of January 2011.

 Eating Well Lemon Chicken Stir Fry

I am following the new Points Plus Program through Weight Watchers and I calculate the nutritional values for each recipe that I eat.  You don't have to follow the program, but please make sure the nutritional values are included in your recipe.  Also please post the recipe or link it to your blog or Facebook account so that we can see the recipe.

It sounds like a lot of work, but I think once we get going it will be fun.  Maybe we can start a little photography group and scrapbooking group too.  We will have fun!
