STILLWATER — As we begin this new year, I am sure that a lot of us have made a resolution to eat a healthier diet. We all would like to shed a few of the pounds that we put on during the holiday season.

In our thought process of eating healthy, we tend to think about only the things that we need to cut out of our diet. This thought process makes getting started on a healthy diet much tougher. We need to train our minds to think of all good things that we can still include in our diets.

Here are a few ideas for healthy eating:

1. Substitute a delicious lean beef and vegetable stir fry for a hamburger and French fries.

2. Substitute a lean pork roast with carrots and onions for fried pork chops with mashed potatoes and gravy.

3. Substitute a grilled chicken salad for fried chicken.

4. Incorporate dishes that are made up of various fish.

You have probably noticed by now that I am very enthusiastic about eating. I am sure that I won’t cut out all of the foods that are not quite as healthy for me, but it is nice to know that there are healthy alternatives that are delicious and have great flavor.

1 would like to pass along a recipe that might help you.

Lean Beef and Vegetable

Stir Fry

4 ounces lean beef (round, sirloin, tip), sliced thin across the grain

1 medium thin sliced carrot

1/4 cup coarsely chopped broccoli

1/4 cup coarsely chopped cauliflower

1/4 cup coarsely chopped onions

1 finely chopped garlic clove

Place sliced beef in preheated, non-stick pan over medium heat. Cook beef till brown and starts to tender.

Add salt and pepper to your preference.

Stir in vegetables. Cook vegetables until they begin to tender, but don’t let them get too soft.

Serve alone or add brown rice or whole wheat pasta.

Serves 1.
