This thread is for recipes for foods I think may be good.

I'm currently looking for healthier foods and recipes that my fiance might like. She is not much into vegetables, so it's quite difficult. if you have any suggestions, please feel free to post them here. Currently I am working on eating up the "bad" food in the house, and gonna start healthier hopefully Feb 1.

1/3 cup vegetable oil*
