20 Healthy Recipes

I love finding new healthy recipes to make for my family.  So, today I am sharing 20 of my favorites with a Healthy Recipe roundup.

1.  Spaghetti Squash with Tomato Sauce – I love pasta so I was over the moon finding a healthy substitute.  I will often brown up some ground turkey to add in as a meat sauce.

2.  Meatloaf – This turkey meatloaf  is delicious.  I love serving it with whipped cauliflower as a substitute for mashed potatoes.

3.  Stuffed Peppers – This Stuffed Pepper recipe changes things up featuring Chicken and White Beans.  It’s delicious!


4.  Turkey Burger – This turkey burger recipe is made lean by the use of lettuce leaves.  I serve it with baked sweet potato fries and it kills that fast food craving.

5.  Rotisserie Chicken – This Rotisserie Chicken recipe is made in the crockpot.  My favorite invention…ever.  Love adding some steamed vegetables and a salad for a healthy and easy meal.

6.  Asian Chicken Salad – This Asian Chicken Salad recipe is one of my favorites especially when I’m craving Asian flavors but wanting to stay on track.

7.  Fagioli con Salsicce Soup  – Throughout the winter I live on soup.  And this Fagioli con Salsicce recipe has a fabulous flavor.

8.  Saucy Tomato & Artichoke Chicken – I absolutely love artichokes so this Saucy Tomato & Artichoke Chicken recipe caught my attention.  I have also served it over a bed of spaghetti squash.  A delicious switch from the typical squashta dish.

9.  Asian Lettuce Wraps – These lettuce wraps are made with ground turkey and do not taste healthy at all.  Even my kids love them!

10.  Kebabs – This kebab recipe is different than your standard protein and vegetable kebabs.  I love the addition of pineapple and serve this over a bed of brown rice.

11.  Lemon Chicken – I love this lemon chicken recipe.  I do use boneless skinless chicken breasts and swap the wine for chicken broth or water if I am trying to eat clean.

12.  Crockpot Chili – This crockpot recipe for chili is one of my favorites.  I make a big batch of it and store in small containers for an easy lunch or a quick dinner.

13.  Chicken Fajitas – This chicken fajita recipe is super simple – you just throw it all in the oven.  I will often serve this over a bed of brown rice and black beans instead of the usual tortilla.

These oven baked chicken fajitas are one of my favorite chicken recipes. Serve them traditionally with tortillas or make it a paleo recipe served in a lettuce wrap.

14.  Hummus Crusted Chicken – Hummus crusted chicken sounded delicious when I heard a friend of mine mention it.  And…in fact it is.  I have served this with a steamed squash mixture.

15.  Tacos – Here is a healthy spin on a traditional taco.

16.  Balsamic Chicken – I love homegrown tomatoes in the summer months.  Loved this recipe with store bought tomatoes but I’m anxious to try it tomatoes from the vine this year.

17.  White Chicken Chili – I love White Chicken Chili and this recipe makes it easy with the use of a crockpot.

18.  Grilled Pesto Shrimp  – Love the flavor of pesto.  These grilled pesto shrimp skewers are delicious and guilt free.  Definitely a summer staple.

19.  Caprese Chicken – This Caprese Chicken recipe is simple and yummy.  Two of my favorite things.

20.  Mexican Bowls – These Mexican Bowls are a staple in our house.  I make a big batch of them so that my husband can take them to work or I can heat up a quick dinner on a busy evening instead of hitting up the drive thru.
