We made it through part of the holidays! Here are a few of our favorite healthy meals to get you back on track!
One Pan Mexican Quinoa from Damn Delicious
"Wonderfully light, healthy and nutritious. And it’s so easy to make – even the quinoa is cooked right in the pan!"
Simple Detox Water from Peanut Butter & Peppers
"My Detox Water is not your traditional kind of water, it contains all of the components to make you feel good. It cleans out your kidneys, helps with bloating, it’s great for the skin and helps detoxify any bad germies in your system. As a plus for me it works great to help with your digestive system. It’s made with fresh cucumber, lemon slices, lime slices, grapefruit slices, fresh sliced ginger and fresh mint leaves."
Grilled Salmon and Avocado Salsa from the Cookie Rookie
"My favorite things to post are easy and delicious recipes. this one is easy, delicious AND healthy. its so flavorful that you’ll really have to wonder how it could be soo good for you. The Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa might just be my favorite recipe on my entire site."
Dieter's Wonder Water from Kitchen Frau
"We still have a long winter ahead of us up here . . . I’m feeling those ‘blahs’. We’ve just come through a bout of yukky stomach flu that graced us all with its nauseous presence, and it’s hard to get our gumption up and going again. We need to be rehydrating our bodies and ‘spring cleaning’ our systems, not only from the flu, but from all that Christmas feasting."
Caprese Balsamic Chicken from Yummy Healthy Easy
"Easy Balsamic Chicken recipe with a caprese twist! Chicken breasts are cooked until tender in a flavorful balsamic sauce then topped with mozzarella, basil & tomato. Low carb and gluten free!"
Strawberry, Lime, Cucumber and Mint Water from Back to Her Roots
"For now, I’m getting my fill of fun, flavorful drinks by consuming a ton of naturally-flavored waters. I know, I know. You can buy flavored waters (both regular and sparkling) at the grocery store for almost nothing, and it’s so much easier than making your own. You’re right, it is so much more convenient to just snag a bottle or two off the shelf, but I love being able to customize my own combinations. I love knowing exactly what I’m drinking. And I love seeing this beautiful jar of deliciousness sitting in the fridge. It’s like a work of art!"
Skinny Avocado Pizza from Little Broken
"I love, love avocados and find every way I can to incorporate more of them into my dishes. Have you tried the avocado eggrolls with the most amazing dipping sauce at Cheesecake Factory? Avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, and cilantro stuffed in a crispy won ton wrapper, served with tamarind-cashew dipping sauce. They are to die for! That’s where the inspiration for my pizza came from as I wanted to incorporate similar flavors of the eggrolls but also use a lighter approach with this dish."
Apple Cinnamon Detox Water from Confessions of an Overworked Mom
"Detox water recipes with apple are beneficial to you for a number of reasons. Apples contain pectin and pectin will bond to the heavy metals in your system which lets them be flushed from your body more easily which in turn helps your liver. Apples also contain antioxidants and flavanoids like Vitamins C and B Complex. To make this detox water even healthier, I’ve added cinnamon to it. Cinnamon is super healthy and helps balance your blood sugar. It’s also an antioxidant and I can always use more of those."
Spinach Feta Blood Orange Salad from Joy the Baker
"This is the sort of salad that you can eat and feel like you’re indulging in a good life. Not like you’re depriving yourself of peanut butter cups. This salad is a treat in itself…and totally justifies peanut butter cups for dessert."
