Good For You Goodies

Now that we had our preliminary chat about food last week, I wanted to let you in on a few of my favorite healthy recipes so far. I find it hard to track down really healthy meals (or desserts) that turn out better than “just ok.” It’s hard enough to motivate myself to eat well when I know that Milano cookies with pretzels on top is a reality, so I only continue to make a healthy dish if I really enjoyed it and would look forward to eating it again.

Here are my top dishes at the moment for lunch, dinner, and dessert:

(top photo) Mini Crunch Bars with Peanut Butter Drizzle– Oh She Glows

  1. Tex Mex Spaghetti Squash with Black Bean Guacamole– Oh She Glows
  2. No Bake Chocolate Macaroons– Oh She Glows
  3. Savory Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with White Beans and Kale– The Kitchn
  4. Easy Flaked Almond Tuna – Oh She Glows
  5. Easiest Almond Cookies– Oh She Glows
  6. Black Bean and Butternut Squash Burritos– Oh She Glows

I can usually tell when I’ve found a winner if Todd agrees that it should be a repeat dish.

You’ll notice most of these dishes are from the same blog (it’s one of my favorites). Any other fantastic plant-based food blogs I should check out?

    That’s one of my favourite blogs too. There’s so many great vegan blogs out there. People think vegan food is automatically not as good and you just have to suffer through it, but there’s no reason to eat something you don’t really enjoy. One site you should check out is http://mouthwateringvegan.com/. She has a combination of healthy and indulgent foods. We bought her book recently. There’s just too many sites I like to share, so I’m just going to give you my Pinterest link and you can look at some of the recipes I’ve found. http://www.pinterest.com/bambooblossom/

    Three words for you, Gummergal: Vegan Eggplant Lasagna.
    One of many great things about Pinterest is that there are SOOOO many links to amazing food blogs!

    Post Punk Kitchen is one of my favorites. Also Kath Eats Real Food (KERF). She’s not vegetarian but most of the recipes are vegetarian or plant based. I’ll definitely be checking out Oh She Glows!
