Healthy eating is all about the recipes. If you enjoy the foods that will make you more healthy, you will have less tendency to find yourself beset with bad food cravings. Making the switch from unhealthy foods to healthy eating recipes doesn’t have to mean bland, boring and tasteless. In fact, with the use of the right herbs and spices, healthy meals can taste better than what you are used to.
“So, how do I find good healthy eating recipes? How do I know which ones taste like cardboard, and which ones taste like a 5 star chef created them?” The answer is EXPERIMENT! You don’t have to run out to the bookstore and buy all the latest fad books. You can, if you like having glossy pictures and recipes for future use. But those books can cost from $20.00 to over $100.00.
The best place to find recipes for your healthy life is online. Google a general search term, like Healthy Recipes. Or be more specific and put Healthy pork recipes in the search bar. Yes, you do get thousands to millions of results. Take some time and browse through the results and you may well find your new favorite recipe. You can make the search process much easier by looking at the recipe collection sites. Just search for “Easy healthy recipe Collections”. Usually the first two pages will have the most pertinent sites, and the most recently updated sites. But again, take some time and browse the results.
I also use a personal database program for keeping my recipes in order. I won’t endorse any single one. I have used several free programs and most of them are more than adequate. Some of them break the recipe down into calories per serving, nutrition information per serving, and some even recommend healthy sides to go with entrés. I like the ones that you can enter the main ingredient, say ‘chicken’, and a list of recipes with chicken comes up along with recommended side items.
