National Nutrition Month Recipe Roundup

Life isn’t about making giant changes and experiencing instant success.  It’s more about making incremental changes the eventually equal success with staying power. March was National Nutrition Month, and I asked some of my friends to share their favorite healthy recipes with you. At the bottom of the page, you’ll find a spot where you can link up your favorite healthy (er) recipes.

Breakfast Foods

Eva Krasova from Kidminds has an awesome recipe for green pancakes–if Dr. Seuss can have green eggs and ham, why not have green pancakes?

Amee from the Inspired Housewife has a plethora of healthy and gluten-free recipes.  These Healthy Egg Muffins are part of the 21-day fix plan.

If you like your eggs a little spicier, try this Zesty Egg Bake–it’s a crowd pleaser and perfect for brunch.

Salads

Here’s a Tasty Kale Salad from Hope, Heart, Home’s Susan Shipe. She has a Tasty Tuesday series you won’t want to miss.

Entrees

Airman2 Mom’s Amanda Huffman’s Healthy Chicken Stirfry

Natalie from Messy Mom shared her Turkey Burger recipe.  She shares some great tips on make extra ahead of time and freezing the excess for a quick meal later on.

Magdaline from Momzcuisine shared a recipe for Wild Asparagus that looks amazing as well as a Greek rendition of Peas and Potatoes.

I loved this recipe from Julie, the Cancer Dietitian, for Sweet Potato Burritos.

You can find some of my favorite entree recipes right here on the blog.  I especially love this Spicy Enchilada recipe.

National Nutrition Month

This tasty entrée is all flavor, but gluten-free and vegan (unless you like cheese, and add a little to the top).

Beverages

Patti from Total Health Science’s shares her friend’s Hot Ginger Tonic recipe.

LeeAnn Taylor shared her friend Julie’s Tried and True Green Smoothie Recipe.  Julie is a registered dietitian and specializes in oncology nutrition.  If you’re a caregiver to a cancer patient, you’ll want to check out her site for sure!

Sweet Treats

Lauren from Lauren’s Latest has a great recipe for Peanut Butter Energy Bites that don’t have any processed sweetners. Lauren also as a to-die-for Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler (which is really a lava cake).

Healthy (er) #brownies disguised as decadence--so good, no one will know! http://wp.me/p2UZoK-ax via @blestbutstrest #chocolate #mintI’ve discovered that you make make sweet things better for your family if you replace the whites with browns and halve the yellows.  In other words, replace the white flour with whole-wheat flour and the white sugar with brown sugar.  I replace half the butter or margarine in each recipe with applesauce.  No one is the wiser, and I feel better about serving fewer refined ingredients. If you don’t believe me, do a taste test with the brownie recipes.  Let me know what your family thinks!

  • Wow, Anita! I love everything cooking, so you’e given me lots of ideas here. I didn’t know Susan Shipe had recipes on Tuesdays. And I love the idea of substituting half the fat/butter for applesauce in baking. Great idea. I’ve tried that sort of thing myself, and usually results are good.

  • Thanks for including me, Anita! Sometimes, by chance, I have healthier recipes! I do love exchanging oil with applesauce and sour cream with plain yogurt – and now these you can use zucchini nicely instead of pasta or potatoes. blessings! Will you be inviting once a month? just shared on FB
