I am not a chef. I don’t pretend to be. The truth of the matter is, I cannot cook anything without a recipe in front of me. I love to cook, and I am getting pretty good at it, but I need instructions to make sure I am putting together ingredients that will taste well together.
Otherwise, it might prove to be inedible. And my family needs to eat.
Since trying to encourage my family to eat healthier I have had to branch out from my normal foodie blogs and find new ones that provided delicious menu options and used relatively familiar ingredients. My husband is not a fan of things that are so extremely different that you can’t find it in the grocery store kind of meals.
I am sure most of you are the same way.
That being said, experimenting is a fun way of trying new foods and breaking out of a rut. So if a recipe calls for whole wheat flour, then I will pick some up. Do not be afraid of different.
Here are my favorite sites as of late for healthy eats:
Daily Garnish: Emily Malone is a culinary arts Grad and a vegetarian. She just had a sweet baby boy and he is oh so cute. Plus, her recipes you can find pinned on my pinterest page because she makes every single vegetable look delectable. I encourage you to check her out.
Love Veggies and Yoga: Averie is so pretty I wanted to hate her. Yet she creates the most decadent looking (yet nutritionally dense) desserts I have ever seen. So I don’t hate her. Not even close.
Skinny Taste: Great stuff on this site!
These are just a few. Venture out and try something new! Try at least one new healthy recipe and then share with the rest of us!
