We are rocking and rolling in the new year and everyone is talking about their health resolutions and goals. I have personally found that setting my goals, intentions and setting my mindset equals success. Meaning, when I set my intentions to be healthy, I make healthy decisions that turn into habits. One habit that has caught on in a serious way in 2016 is meal planning -it’s been a game changer for me. But part of meal planning is finding inspiration!
If you are looking for some easy, healthy and affordable recipes, I wanted to pop in today to share a few of my favorites. Like nearly every recipe you’ll find on this blog, these recipes are easy to throw together and typically require minimal ingredients – and loved by this healthy gal and a meat and potatoes guy.
Protein Pancake – these are easy, delicious and a perfect fake-out. I love that you can make a batch on the weekend and warm them up through the week for a quick, easy, options to go.
Protein Muffins – One of my favorite things to make in the mornings are muffins. Not only do they make your house smell amaaaazing, but they’re easy to throw together, they’re super healthy (these just so happened to be packed with veggies) and they make a bunch for the week so you can just grab one on the go because let’s face it, the later we can sleep in the mornings the better! These particular muffins not only are good for breakfast, but they make a great pre- or post-workout snack. Made with zucchini, carrots, added protein powder and the perfect amount of cinnamon and nutmeg, these muffins make it easy for me to eat healthy throughout the week. They also taste pretty good too!
Roasted Veggie Salad – over the weekend, roast some of your favorite vegetables. When it is time for lunch, top a pile of greens with veggies, quinoa and feta.
There is nothing easier than a crock pot. Toss in your ingredients, turn it on and you have a great meal with little effort. Santa Fe Chicken is a household favorite around here.
Mexican Burgers – a great option for those burger cravings. Six ingredients, 5 minutes of prep, 10 minutes to cook and a delicious, healthy burger is served!
Faux Fries – my favorite fake-out. This fry substitute totally crushes your cravings. Best part? You need one ingredient.
