My husband and I (and his entire family) are working on eating healthier this year. Really, who doesn’t want to eat healthier? It’s always a good goal but we are committed to doing our best. The truth is that I enjoy baking and I enjoy eating, so I am working on baking and enjoying healthier food options, as I watch portions. I’m always looking for new recipe ideas. Here are some that I’ve stumbled upon recently.
Allrecipes has a recipe for Crispy Edamame. I like Edamame all by itself, but this seems like a fun alternative for a salty snack when I want something crunchy.
Texanerin Baking shared a recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites. What I find most intriguing is that these are made with chickpeas – and no added butters or oils. This is a healthier option than a cookie when I have a chocolate craving. I need to buy some chickpeas.
100 Days of Real Food has a great list of 85 Snack Ideas that Cut Out Processed Foods. Actually, their whole site is an interesting read with all sorts of thought-provoking articles, recipes and advice.
Skinny Ms. shared a recipe for Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Soup. I’m planning to make a batch soon with some of my shredded chicken and package it for school lunches. I think that sounds like a frugal and healthy lunch option. Win-win!
I’m planning on making another batch of my Mom’s baked oatmeal this weekend, because it’s a delicious and healthy start to my day. Plus, the oatmeal keeps me full to lunch, even after chasing preschoolers all morning!
Those are a couple of my health(ier) stumbles of the week. It’s amazing what ideas one can glean on Pinterest! Do you have any healthy recipes to share?
