Stew-Less Beef Stew

Every week I ask the hubby what he wants to eat next week, every week he responds with one of the following statements, “whatever you want to make,” OR, “meat and vegetables.”  Thanks for the input, babe.

I was hoping that I would come back from Santa Fe with loads of healthy-eating travel tips to share – but the truth is, I was way under prepared and as a result, didn’t stick to my healthy eating.
