2019 is here and to kick-start the new year, I’m sharing my Favorite Healthy…ish Recipes. I’ve included healthy recipes for everything from breakfast, to lunch, to dinner, to dessert. And each and every one of them is delicious. Let me know which recipe is your favorite?
Did you know that the most googled words on New Year’s Day are healthy recipes, diets, and detox? It seems everyone has the same thing on their minds this time of year, getting back to a healthy lifestyle. Trust me, I get. I tend to go all out for the holidays (and I don’t regret it even a little). December is indulgent, but January tends to be our month of clean (but delicious) eating.
I’m excited to be kicking off HBH’s 3rd year of “Healthy January”. I can’t wait to share brand new recipes that are good for us, but also just GOOD food. You guys know me, I don’t believe in diets. But I do believe in eating non processed food with plenty of color, healthy whole grains, and of course, a little cheese…everything in moderation. Life is balance, you know?
This month I’ll be sharing plenty of healthy soups, salads, easy dinners (pizza and pasta still included), and healthy desserts. Before we dive into the brand new recipes, I want to share some of my favorites from this past year. My hope is that these recipes will help to inspire you to actually move forward with your plans for healthy eating in the new year.
Have a very Happy Healthy New Year! See you all in 2019!
Vegan, gluten free, contains double doses of cinnamon and ginger (proven cold fighters). Has a serving of omega 3 rich hemp seeds (proven healthy fats), includes protein rich cashews, and is free of added sugars…only pure honey or maple for a touch of sweetness.
Crush all winter colds with this citrus layered smoothie.
Made with just 4 simple, healthy, ingredients, all found in your pantry. This is the cozy, healthy, version of your favorite fall latte.
Not technically a cookie, but this granola tastes like an oatmeal cookie that’s been crumbled up. And you guys it is so good!
These muffins are light, moist, filled with banana flavor, and generously studded with dark chocolate chips. Oddly they’re also vegan.
These crepes are quick, healthy…ish, and so delicious. Made using a few simple ingredients and some of my favorite spring herbs. These savory crepes make the perfect addition to just about any menu…breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner!
Made with healthy additions like applesauce, maple syrup, whole wheat flour, and pomegranate seeds. Every bite of this bread is filled with sweet pumpkin, and infused with hints of ginger and cinnamon.
Homemade pizza dough topped with goat and Havarti cheese, balsamic mushrooms, kale, and fresh herbs. All baked in a super hot oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly, the mushrooms roasted, the kale crisp, and the crust golden and perfect.
Easy homemade potstickers with chicken, ginger and sesame crusted wrappers. Served alongside a sweet and spicy chili pomegranate sauce, these potstickers are sure to please all.
I turned everyone’s favorite dinner into an easy and delicious slow cooker recipe. I also used pantry staples like wild rice, autumn herbs, and chicken breasts.
All made in just ONE pot (or in your instant pot), in less than an hour. Made using good for us ingredients like sweet potatoes, red lentils, warming spices, and creamy coconut milk.
Made with ground turkey, bell peppers, smoky chipotle peppers, white beans, and served with sharp cheddar cheese and avocado.
All made in the instant pot (or in one pot on the stove), using healthy, pantry staple, ingredients. This ramen is creamy, spicy, filled with veggies, lean chicken, and ramen noodles. Perfect for a cold night in, after a long busy day.
This dish incorporates a variety of Indian spices, all with an abundance of health benefits. These meatballs are extra saucy, quick, easy, and delicious. Serve over steamed rice with a side of naan (preferably homemade because it’s the best).
Make this curry with whatever you have on hand. I used a mix of sweet corn and zucchini, coconut milk, and rice noodles. Best part…all you need for this recipe are pantry ingredients and 30 minutes.
Quick, simple, vegetarian, healthy, and SO GOOD. Slow roasted red peppers stuffed with Greek orzo, feta cheese, and topped with fresh lemony basil tomatoes.
With pineapple salsa too, because you know me, I love my fruity salsa.
This cauliflower is well seasoned with spices, herbs, and garlic. The green tahini sauce is the key, it’s not traditional, but so delicious.
I paired my Greek meatballs with some orzo, goddess sauce, and plenty of feta cheese. Oh, and greens too, of course.
It really doesn’t get easier or more hands off. No standing at the stove stirring, minimal mess, and zero stress. Just what we all need on a Monday night.
like eating the rainbow.
This bowl is full of all the good for us veggies, grains, proteins, and healthy fats that our bodies need to keep us going throughout our busy day. Trust me, this bowl is a life saver…it also happens to be SO good!
It’s simple, quick, healthy, and so easy. If you like middle eastern and Moroccan flavors, you will love this chicken recipe.
I could not love this combo of shredded kale, sweet honeycrisp apples, pomegranate, pumpkin seeds, and crispy prosciutto more. Tossed with a caramelized shallot vinaigrette, this salad is sure to become a new staple.
Because it’s very cold, and very much winter.
Loaded with flavor, texture and color. Plus this is so easy to prep for delicious meals throughout the week!
This recipe is all about the sauce! But to create an extra layer of texture and flavor I added pan-fried Halloumi cheese. All on the table in 20 mins.
Relatively easy to make, and actually somewhat fun. These potstickers are a million times better than anything from the freezer section…and healthier too!
One of my favorite sheet pan salads.
Spicy + sweet, served with a delicious roasted tomatillo salsa…made with both pineapple AND mango. All cooked on one sheet pan and ready in 20 mins!
Taking sheet pan dinners to a whole new level.
Simple, easy and delicious. These bowls are perfect for preparing ahead for lunches or dinners throughout the week.
The perfect balance of noodles, broth, veggies, and salmon.
Made with protein packed hummus, all in one pot and one sheet pan, in under 30 mins.
The perfect dinner for cold nights. When all you really want to do is make a quick dinner, grab your food, and huddle by the fire!
These are kind of a knock off of an al pastor style taco. I just swapped the pork for chicken, and added a delicious pomegranate pineapple salsa.
