From This Kitchen

Building Health One Meal At a Time.

Keep it simple

Tonight I didn’t have dinner planned, but the best thing about this lifestyle is all I have to do is BBQ up something! Tonight and one I loved was a hamburger patty (homemade patty), with sautéed mushrooms on top!  

I sautéed the mushrooms in butter and garlic, and the hamburger was on the traeger with a little onion seasoning!  

Side Caesar salad and the leftover cucumber salad!  Yum yum!

Welcome to “From This Kitchen”

I’m here because I’m taking on a healthier lifestyle for myself and my family! As many of you know I’ve gained and lost weight many times! I want to learn how to make this a lifestyle for myself and my family so that once I lose my weight again… hopefully, it won’t come back… it’s got to be a lifestyle not a diet! 

With that I want to bring the recipes and tips and tricks I’m learning in the kitchen to you, as I learn them!  It may be very simple things I’m eating in our kitchen but it will help me keep track of the things I’m creating in our house to keep us on the healthy track! 

I have started the codered lifestyle and hope you enjoy the recipes I’m creating that I feel are Code Red compliant!!
