Recipes for Healthy Food
Recipes for healthy food can easily be done by making a few changes or additions to your meals. Here are a few healthy eating tips.
BreakfastStir low-fat or fat-free granola into a bowl of low-fat or fat-free yogurt and top it off with sliced apples or berries. If you are eating a regular cereal, try to do the same and make it healthier.
Add strawberries, blueberries, or bananas to your waffles, pancakes, cereal, oatmeal, or toast. My grandson and I mixed up a pancake recipe using Jiffy Mix the other day when he was home sick from school. We added some blueberries and small cut strawberries and he was loving it!
Top your toasted whole-grain bread with peanut butter and sliced bananas.
The next time you make an omelet, sdd vegetables like bell peppers, broccoli, spinach, mushrooms or tomatoes.
Canned, dried, and frozen fruits and vegetables are also good options. Look for fruit without added sugar or syrups and vegetables without added salt, butter, or cream sauces.
Finding recipes for healthy food doesn't always mean you have to completely change your diet.
Lunch & Dinner
Ask for more vegetable toppings (like mushrooms, peppers, and onions) and less cheese on your pizza.
Choose soup. You can stick with the basics like tomato or vegetable soup or you can mix up some minestrone or veggie chili to cut winter's chill. When possible, choose soups with less sodium.
Add broccoli, green beans, corn, or peas to a casserole or pasta.
Add lettuce, tomato, onion, and cucumber to sandwiches.
Look for fruit without added sugar or syrups and vegetables without added salt, butter, or cream sauces.
Place a box of raisins in your child's backpack and pack one for yourself, too.
