4/25/11 dinner

Dinner last night was my favorite meat sauce over steamed broccoli with steamed baby carrots. This sauce is wonderful, and easy to make. I brown lean ground beef and mix it with store-bought “traditional” spaghetti sauce, then add 5-6 cloves of roasted garlic (which I roast, let cool, then puree in a food processor). Its great, I make roasted garlic puree in bulk, because I add it to everything! You can even add it to your favorite low-calorie butter/margarine or olive oil for a garlic-infused taste. Other than its great taste, garlic has many health benefits as well. Allium, which is found in garlic is reported to have cancer-preventative properties. I’ve provided a link relating to garlic’s health benefits below.

I then indulged in my favorite treat of the day (one I often look forward to the whole day), a Skinny Cow ice cream cup. All together, this meal came in at around 650 calories.

About notyouraveragefoodie

Not your average foodie, indeed. I have a Masters Degree in Dietetics and am currently employed as a Registered Dietitian at a nationally renown clinic. I created this blog to entertain and inform foodies everywhere. I am a busy, working woman battling the same food issues most people struggle with every day. Possessing the knowledge about food is the easy part. Putting it into practice... that’s where it gets tricky. I consider myself obsessed with food –– how it looks, how it smells, how it tastes, even how it makes me feel. My hope is to provide recipes, tips & tricks each day, to help foodies everywhere eat like a dietitian. I will be sharing my tips & tricks in the kitchen, providing delicious recipes, and helping foodies everywhere navigate through the supermarket, eating out, preparing foods at home, and surviving tricky eating situations whenever they arise.
