World's Best Dinner + Recipe Tool

Calling all cooks! Calling all cooks!
It's official... I have found the BEST healthy menu planner and recipes. Oh, so you're super interested to know what's up? That's what I thought.

Let me tell you where to begin...

1) Drop by this website.

2) It only 20 quick seconds to take the My Plate, My Way eating personality quiz!

3) Discover your unique eating personality and get amazing healthy recipes geared specifically for YOU!


My Eating Personality?


"You take pride in the way you look and it shows. The food choices you make not only help you manage your weight, but they can also help you feel good about yourself. While your current diet is on the healthy side, you seek improvement and satisfaction in your healthy eating habits. People with your personality type often go out of their way to select healthy food and enjoy trying new foods."


They hit the nail on the head right there!! I am always out to find an extremely delicious and healthy new recipe, so lean lover I am!

So, you can imagine my excitement when they listed several delicious-sounding, healthy beef recipes! The Balsamic Marinated Flank Steak recipe totally caught my eye... yum!

I had never personally cooked flank steak before, but I know it's very lean and always tasty. This girl was ready for a challenge, but it actually took minutes to prepare and a few minutes to cook. Now, that's my kind of meal!

{ Balsamic Marinated Flank Steak }


Beef flank steak (about 1-1/2 pounds)
Salt & pepper

Balsamic Marinade:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon sugar



1)  Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place beef steak and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.

2)  Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11 to 16 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 16 to 21 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.

3) Season steak with salt and pepper, as desired. Carve steak crosswise into thin slices.


The overall verdict? Adam and I were floored! Yes, I will be making this again ASAP! And leftovers tomorrow will be great - can't wait to make a healthy steak wrap or salad!

Definitely stop by My Plate, My Way and take the quiz! Get ready for some delicious, tried-and-true recipes!

Bon Appetit!
