Healthy and Delicious Recipes for Spring 2018

Many people dread dieting because eating healthy is often associated with bland food. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be that way. Dieting can be full of colorful, fresh ingredients that taste just as good as the full-fat, high-calorie version. All you have to do is learn some simple recipes that can be easily accessed online. For starters, here are five recipes that will help you lose weight but still taste great:
1. Oven Baked Salmon
Salmon is an extremely popular health food because it not only provides essential Omega-3 fatty acids, but also provides a kick of savory, rich flavor. This particular recipe only takes twenty minutes, which makes it ideal for those who are constantly on the go.
2. Guacamole
Guacamole is a much-loved dip because of its creamy, yet spicy flavor. Did you know that the ingredients are good for you, though? Guacamole is made up of avocados, tomatoes, lime juice, and spices to create its signature Mexican flavor. Make your own guacamole and serve it with vegetables for optimum health benefits.
3. Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry
If you serve this meal to your guests, they’ll swear it’s Chinese takeout! Thankfully, it has much less sodium and all of the ingredients are fresh, so you can feel good about what you’re putting into your body.
4. Hash brown Casserole
We know what you’re thinking… hash brown casserole isn’t healthy! Luckily for you, this recipe substitutes full fat ingredients for lighter ones so that you can enjoy this traditional Southern dish without any guilt.
5. Hasselback Sweet Potatoes
Although Hasselback Potatoes are traditionally made with Idaho potatoes, once you make the swap to sweet potatoes you won’t be able to go back! In addition to tasting great, sweet potatoes are chock full of important vitamins and that makes this recipe a win-win.
