Healthy recipes are the best way to start the year off well! I have a whole batch of 25+ Healthy Recipes to kick off your new year on the right foot.
Once again, I’ve partnered with a group of talented food bloggers to help you create healthy menus with delicious lower calorie recipes. There are entrees, side dishes, snacks, and even desserts to peruse.
I generally have pretty good willpower, but I must admit to tasting a lot of cookie dough along with sampling all the sweets and treats delivered to our house for the holidays. January is the perfect time to reflect on the year gone by and focus on a new healthier you.
This means eating a more balanced diet, limiting desserts, and upping fruits and vegetables. My blogger friends and I have shared 25+ Healthy Recipes including our favorite clean-eating recipes, from soups to salads to entrees. You’ll want to add them to your menu throughout the year!
25 Healthy Recipes
January is the perfect time to jumpstart a healthy eating plan! Here are some terrific recipes from my blogger friends that will help you add some lighter recipes to your menu.
To lighten up recipes, find lower-calorie substitutes for some of the ingredients, like ground turkey instead of ground beef. Try Greek yogurt instead of sour cream or mayonnaise. Pureed white beans can add a creamy texture to soups and sauces instead of heavy cream. Veggie noodles made with zucchini are a tasty option for regular pasta. And cauliflower rice is a wonderful substitute for white rice.
What Are Some Good Tips to Help with Healthy Eating Habits?
1. Get a good night’s sleep as you’re less likely to overeat when you’re well rested. 2. Make sure to eat breakfast to minimize the chances of overeating due to extreme hunger later in the day. 3. Watch your portion sizes. 4. Make sure to add fewer sweets and starches and more fruit, vegetables, and protein sources to your plate. 5. Have some color on your plate. This ensures you have included fruit and vegetables. 6. Eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full. 7. Have healthy snacks available. 8. Make it a habit to take a walk after eating. 9. Add more high-fiber foods like whole grain bread and produce to help fill you up and satisfy those hunger pangs.
