Let’s be honest, eating healthy can get boring if you do not prepare ahead of time. When I fall into the trap of making “the usual” recipes that I cook every week; pizza and pasta look so much more appetizing.
A few months ago I was on a rampage to find recipes that were easy to make AND delicious so I started asking fellow bloggers where they found recipes to cook. Below is a list of websites with healthy, easy, blogger approved recipes for you to enjoy.
- Alex & Whitney from Sporty Afros (recipes and food tips & tricks)
- Ari from Ari’s Menu
- Elle from We Can Begin to Feed (WW Friendly & calories listed)
- Emily from Emily Bites (WW Friendly)
- Gina from Skinny Taste (WW Friendly & calories listed)
- Gina from Running to the Kitchen
- Heather from Better With Veggies
- Heather from Dietitian on the Run
- Heidi from Food Doodles
- Jennifer from Fitspiration for Moms (calories listed)
- Laura from Mommy Run Fast
- Lindsay from Cotter Crunch
- Lindsay from The Lean Green Bean
- Melanie from Nutritious Eats
- Nicole from The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie
- Roni from Green Lite Bites (WW Friendly & calories listed)
I know these are just a few out of the thousands of healthy websites that have amazing recipes. In order to start trying out recipes, I sit down once per week and compile a list of 3-5 recipes to make for the following week. I grocery shop on Sundays, so I prepare a list detailing all of the ingredients that I need to ensure that I will have everything on hand for the week.
When you are making new recipes, it is not the time to try to remember what you need once you get to the grocery store. Write. It. Down. The worst thing that could happen is when you get ready to make ginger garlic chicken for dinner, you realize that you forgot the ginger. If you need help assembling your grocery list, try using Zip List. This website helps you store recipes and build a grocery list based upon the recipes that you select for the week.
Happy, healthy cooking! Do you have a favorite recipe site?
