Do you love meatballs but wish they were healthier? Have you been watching your weight and trying to eat better?

I certainly have been trying to make better choices. Giving up foods we like doesn't work for very long, but you can have these meatballs and feel good about what you are eating.

Don't you just love all of the healthy things you can put on your salad and they are so good for you. And then there is the dressing.

I made salads the other night with some great ingredients:

California style breakfast

Not really sure if this egg dish is "California style" or not, but that is what my husband called it. I am here in LA visiting my daughter and she spots an egg dish on Pinterest that looks good. We all agreed, but since the only ingredient we had that was in the recipe was eggs, I had to make substitutions for the rest. Funny how adding a few other ingredients and voila a new creation.

Healthy Mango Parfaits

Still making dishes with all my mangoes. I love to have a light and refreshing dessert once in awhile and these parfaits hit the spot. I changed the original recipe from Kraft Foods to make it healthier. The family had no idea I changed to light ingredients.

Pineapple Mango Salsa

Yikes, the mangoes have been coming fast and plentiful. I have been making lots of recipes, but it seems I have no time to post. Too many mangoes to cut up! We are getting around 40 per day!

The first thing I had to make was salsa. We love our salsas and mango is my favorite. I was so lucky that one of our pineapples was also ripe. It is so wonderful to make fresh food from your own fruits. It doesn't get any better than that.

One cup of chopped kale contains 33 calories and 9% of the daily value of calcium, 206% of vitamin A, 134% of vitamin C, and a whopping 684% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus. Wow, move over spinach!
