I’m the first to admit that designing recipes is not my forte. I often thought that as a holistic nutritionist that should be part of the package, but it really isn’t. The majority of meals that I have prepared without following a recipe closely would not be served to anyone except myself and perhaps a really close, non-judgemental, very hungry friend.
Given this fact, I thought it would be impossible for me to share healthy recipes. And, what is a nutrition blog without recipes? I can blog all day long about foods that are healthy and what their benefits are, but then if I’m not sharing how to incorporate them into a meal, what IS the point? Right, there isn’t one.
WELCOME TO MUST-TRY MONDAY
Every Monday, you can expect a post that includes healthy recipes that I have found through my searches the week prior. I will always offer my input on substitutions if the recipes are not already gluten-free or if there is an ingredient I would swap out to increase the nutrition profile of the meal.
This week I was browsing www.eatliverun.com - this website is run by Jenna Webber who is a recipe writer. I love her recipes because they are generally filled with whole foods and she doesn’t make any crazy health nut substitutions. If the recipe requires butter, she is not shy about it. Feel free to dig through her recipe page. I’ve linked below those that I have bookmarked to try this month.
Yogi Trail Mix Bars (use certified GF oats and oat bran, skip the granulated sugar or sub in coconut sugar)
Kale Salad with Walnuts and Feta (use first cold-pressed olive oil)
Kale Salad with Oranges, Almonds and Avocado (a delicious detox salad)
I hope you enjoy these recipes. I will be sure to share more next Must-Try Monday.
With Love & Health
