I have to tell you something. Come close…okay, ready? Making lists is my happy place. A pen and a piece of paper. A bulleted list. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, yes. It just gives me happy chills all the way down to my toes. Make lists and save the world! Laundry? Check! Beds? Check! Dusting? Who the heck does that? Dinner? Check! Dessert? CHECK! Priorities, people. Lists make priorities.
So, I’ve noticed that y’all like my list posts too: 25 Healthy Cracker Recipes, 100 Days of No Processed Meals, 20 Healthy Granola Bars, and 75 Real Food Side Dishes…and I promise, there are more to come. Because, as much as you like having them – I like making them. Happy place, remember? So, holler at me with some ideas. I love ideas. I love lists too…have I mentioned that?
First, let me tell you something…some people think “healthy” means I use low-cal margarine and Splenda. ICK! No. No margarine on the premises. By healthy, I mean healthy fats, good for you meats, good for you flours and oils. I get emails and comments from some of you wondering why I call a recipe “healthy” when it’s loaded with butter. Well…butter is good for you. Snack on THAT.
So, please refrain from sending me links and comments about saturated fats killing me slowly and how I should embrace Splenda and canola oil because the jury is still out on coconut oil. That will save us all a bunch of time – and where there is time saved, there is time to make a chocolate cake. Amen.
So, without further ado, here is a list of 25 healthy skillet meals – no cream of soups included or boxed ingredients. Just honest-to-goodness food.
