Braised Chicken Gumbo

Braised Chicken Gumbo

Our reading persuades us that WHAT we eat significantly impacts our health. We have a few healthy and easy breakfast and lunch options, putting our time and variety in supper. 

Breakfast options (don’t skip this meal;it is important as it can keep you from eating more later)

  • Bran Flax Muffins
  • Healthy Granola, I mix it with fruit (like pineapple) and yogurt
  • Oatmeal
  • Poached Eggs with toast (we have a neat poacher that makes this easy)
  • Omelet (David’s Saturday treat; we also have it for suppers once in a while as it is quick)

Lunch is usually a sandwich and a piece of fruit.


Supper options – Many of our favorites are from Eating Well Magazine. The list is  sorted by “meat” and then by frequency of our enjoying. Calories and grams of fat, carbohydrates, and protein (F/C/P) listed are per serving.

Flexible meat





Healthy vegetable & side dishes:

  • Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Garlic and Shallots (added 10/29/2011) – Don’t think you like Brussels Sprouts? We didn’t think so until we have them fresh in this recipe.
  • Japanese Chicken-Scallion Rice Bowl – a good “in-a-hurry” recipe; one serving may not be enough for a complete meal. 262 cal. 3/47/22 gr F/C/P.

Other favorites (not necessarily as healthy – all things in moderation)

  • Recipe for Shredded beef in the crock pot, for sandwiches; easy meal when you have a group over
