However I have actually become more inspired to cook healthier food, rather than junk. There are just so many recipes out there that celebrate healthy eating. I have been introduced to a world of recipes that aim to create healthy, nutritious meals that are also tasty.
I thought I would share with you my top 10 recipes. These are recipes that I have either tried already, or am waiting to try. I hope they inspire you as much as they do me.
1) Individual Baked Oatmeal
These look great. I have discovered a whole new world of breakfast ideas, many of them featuring oats! These look great, and even better that they can be made ahead, frozen, then reheated for a quick, healthy brekkie.
2) Chicken Rollatini with Spinach
I have made these many times. This is a beautiful dish, that tastes just as good the next day. They are also great to serve if you have guests. The website skinnytaste.com is just amazing. Gina shares simple recipes that you just want to try for the look alone.
3) Cranberry and Avocado Salad with Candied Spiced Almonds and Sweet White Balsamic Vinaigrette
I am dying to make this salad. It just sounds amazing! I think this would be a real 'wow' salad to bring out to a summer bbq.
4) Quinoa Tortilla
5) Chocolate Fudge Pie (with Tofu!)
I have actually made this pie. I was just so intrigued by the use of tofu! I quite liked the pie, I did taste a hint of 'tofu' flavour but I used milk chocolate. Next time I plan on making this using dark chocolate as I believe the stronger chocolate taste would mask the tofu flavour further. This is great to make as a much healthier treat. I also love the website. Katie is a Vegan, who has also cut out sugar from her diet, however still wanted to have 'chocolate' in her life. Her recipes are mainly for sweets, but contain no sugar, and often no dairy. Well worth a look at some of the amazing sweets she makes.
I hope these recipes inspire you as much as they have inspired me. If you try one please let me know what you thought of it. Even better if you have come across a 'to die for' healthy recipe you want to share.
