Summer Is Coming, So I’m Trying to Eat Lean

I was watching The Bachelor, and in the episode Juan Pablo and the women went to New Zealand.  One of the activities required bathing suits, because they were sliding down this giant hill in water-filled balloon/bubble structures.  Anyway, one of the contestants was wearing a white, one-piece bathing suit with fringes, and large cut-outs on the side.  My plans of buying the bathing suit got me thinking that I need to try to eat healthier and shed a few pounds with summer around the corner…  Here are a couple of the dinners I made this week:

Kale and potato soup with delicious homemade broth.  (I made the broth my simmering water with a carrot, celery, onion, and some spices.)  I really like making my own broth, because I know it’s lower sodium and not full of preservatives.

Baked scrod topped with capers, sautéed asparagus with garlic, and beluga lentils with diced celery and carrots.
