Favorite Healthy Recipes

As a blog whose focus is primarily on desserts, it gets mighty quiet around here come January. After all the indulging over the holidays and the New Year’s resolutions made on January first, folks want to avoid temptation. I thought this was the perfect time to share some of my favorite healthy recipes from the blog.

Healthy Salads

Mediterranean Chopped Salad

Mediterranean Chopped Salad–add some chicken or salmon for a terrific meal

Greek Farro Salad from That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Greek Farro Salad–I love the bite of chewy farro and the freshness from all the vegetables.

Healthy Entrees

Shredded Chicken Lettuce Wraps | Spicy Asian chicken in boston bib lettuce cups. Low carb and delicious!

Shredded Chicken Lettuce Wraps–using lettuce leaves eliminates the carbs and the flavorful marinade makes these irresistible.

Smoked Salmon Platter | An easy , no recipe needed dish to serve for breakfast, lunch or as an appetizer

Smoked Salmon Platter–I love eating salmon in nearly every form. On some whole grain bread, this makes a marvelous snack or light meal.

Salmon Salad Niçoise | Heart healthy, gourmet meal!

Salmon Salad Nicoise—can also be made with rare Ahi tuna slices or high quality canned tuna (I prefer it in oil though that will up the calories).

Strawberry Salsa Topped Salmon | Perfect for strawberry season from That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Strawberry Salsa Topped Salmon–adding a fruit salsa makes this a restaurant worthy entree!

Sea Bass with Mediterranean Tapenade

Sea Bass with Tomatoes, Olives and Capers–if you’re not a fan of fruit with your seafood, this Mediterranean relish may be more your style.

Vegetable Beef Soup | A healthy soup chock full of vegetables and lean beef

Vegetable Beef Soup–a soup filled with vegetables and lean beef will fill you up in a most delicious way.

Healthy Desserts

Riesling Poached Peaches with Mascarpone Cream | Poached Peach Recipe

 Poached Peaches with Mascarpone Cream–we can’t skip dessert! Poach fresh peaches, pears or apples

and serve with a little low-fat frozen yogurt and some berries.

Honey Lime Fruit Salad | Scrumptious fresh fruit dressed with honey, lime juice, vanilla and poppy seeds

Honey Lime Fruit Salad–a jazzed up fruit salad does not seem like deprivation.

  12. It’s a bit like that around here at the moment; we’ve all had so many sweet things that no one is wanting me to do any baking. You have some great options for healthy eating here – I think my family would most love the lettuce cups! xx

  13. The smoked salmon platter is amazing. I LOVE smoked salmon soooooooooo much. Ha! None of my family or housemates do tho, so if I prepare it, I have to eat the whole lot. Good problem to have I guess. LOL! Thanks for the inspiration, today is my last day of my holidays (my tummy says thank you!) so I will be back into healthful eating. Rather looking forward to it. 🙂

  14. What a wonderful collection of dishes, January is a great time to start a few new healthy habits!
