Eat Healthy with
Healthy Recipes and Healthy Cooking

I am proud to have my friends and family contribute to this healthy recipes page. Nutritious eating is the driving force in a quality fitness plan. The food we eat, and the way its prepared can effect our bodies and fitness level. The best workout plan will fail if it is not fueled by good foods.

The problem with diets is that they are to often temporary. Good nutritious eating is a lifestyle choice. Taking the time to prepare and shop for quality foods can have very positive long term health affects.

  • Ants on a log (celery with peanut butter and raisins)
  • Fresh or canned fruit (in 100% juice, not syrup) with low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • Whole grain crackers with low-fat cheese
  • Frozen grapes (rinse and freeze grapes overnight)
  • Whole wheat bread or apple slices with peanut butter
  • Quesadillas (low-fat cheese on a whole-wheat tortilla)
  • Unsalted pretzels or air-popped popcorn
  • Baked tortilla chips and salsa
  • Whole wheat pita bread with hummus
  • Low-fat milk or water instead of sugary fruit drinks and soda

    Put fresh fruit in a bowl at eye-level in the refrigerator or on the kitchen counter. It will be easier for kids to see and grab.
