New Healthy (AND Filling) Recipes


I'm just going to come out and say it- eating healthy all of the time can be really hard! Recently, I have been working to get back into a more balanced routine where I am watching what I am eating more. I need to kick this metabolism back into gear!



Not to be dramatic, I have been STARVING. I kept referring to myself as 'the hungry hippo' because I felt like I was always hungry. That can be a trade-off sometimes right? Well after a few too many frustrating days, I scoured the internet for new filling, healthy recipes. Boy did I find some great options. In the event that any of you are deal with the same thing, here are my favorites (spoiler alert, 90% of them are from Skinnytaste):


BREAKFAST

Mixed Berry Muffins - Similar to a recipe of my mother's that I make,
I love having a muffin with hard-boiled eggs for breakfast.

SNACKS

Coconut Mango Chia Pudding - I know I am late to the party on chia seeds. This weekend, I stopped by one of my favorite juice shops for a treat after spin class and got a sample of their chia pudding after seeing someone buy it. It was incredible, I bought some and then proceeded to make it a couple of days later bc I couldn't get it out of my mind. This version is probably a lot healthier but just as yummy!


Zucchini Tots - Like I said, I felt like I was still hungry after my meals so I looked for something healthy to either add as a side, or have as a snack.
These tots did just the trick! They are easy to make in big batches and oh-so-yummy.

Cauliflower Fritters - Another great addition to any meal or snack, these fritters are the bomb.com.
I feel like I'm cheating when I eat them because they are SO GOOD.


LUNCH/DINNER

Greek Couscous -  Holy eff this is amazing. I made it last night and I cannot wait to have the leftovers for lunch.
It's really easy to make (just involves a some chopping) and tastes divine.


Lavash Pizza - This has quickly become a household favorite! The lavash we buy comes with three sheets so I've tried a few versions.
Mushroom, olive and sun-dried tomato pizza and a white pizza with just mushrooms, garlic, truffle and cheese. YUM!

Three Cheese Tortellini Mushroom Soup - I always wondered why people made soup when it was so easy to buy, then, on a blustery day, I decided to try this soup recipe. OMG my mind was blown.
It was incredibly delicious and made a ton of leftovers, which I love.
