Healthy Recipes?


My husband.....bless his little heart. Y'all, I'm trying to get him to eat healthier. I tell him how much we need to start eating healthy and that he's going to have to cut back on those sweets. And he loves his fried shrimp and now that we've returned to the Gulf region he's in shrimp heaven. I know he's meeting his friend down at Papaduex's Seafood and ordering that fatty fried shrimp platter. And don't get me started on those hush puppies. He tries to sneak it from me. The other day I asked him what he had for lunch and he began sweat'n like he was on trial for murder. Y'all, I spotted fried shrimp crumbs in his goat tee but he replied, "Oh, I had a salad." I smirked and said, "as the appetizer."
You would think after working several years in the Emergency Room that he'd learn better after working heart attacks, etc... But to tell y'all the truth, after years of being around doctors and nurses they are some of the most unhealthiest people I know. Seriously, no joke. And they never go for their doctor's appointments. My hubby and his friends like to self diagnose themselves. It would take something drastic to get him to go to the doctor. And even then he'd probably text his friends and e-mail a picture so they could all discuss the treatment plan. They love to share medical stories that I find interesting and repulsive (usually over dinner). I've learned to not ask any questions and focus on what I'm eating, HA!

Does anyone have any good eating tips? Any healthy recipes? Any good sites that I can get some ideas on what to cook for lunches and dinners? I could eat salad and grilled chicken for almost every meal. But that will last about two meals and he'll want something else. I would appreciate any input y'all have....
