Healthy Recipes For Your Family
If you're like us, you know that healthy eating is the way to go, but coming up with healthy recipes of your own can be tough.
We were in the same boat. Raised on a traditional American meat and potatoes diet, but knowing that we should be eating more fruits and veggies and not so much starch. But there wasn't much motivation to do so, until we started having health issues that seemed diet related.
With a toddler in the house, the issue is all at once much harder and more important. We wanted our daughter to grow up with a healthy diet and healthy eating habits.
So we made the shift to eating better, created our own healthy recipes, and found healthy substitutes for the typical artificial ingredients used today.
That hasn't always been easy!
We've found we can
eat healthy, and without spending all day in the kitchen, either. On this site we'll present the best of our recipes we've created. They're delicious, healthy, and while some take more than 30 minutes, they don't take all day. Plus, we'll give you ideas on healthy substitutions for ingredients most recipes take for granted.
Have a recipe you think would be a good addition to the site? Send it to us, and if it delights our taste buds while keeping us healthy, we'll put it up and give you credit for it.
P.S. We're constantly adding new recipes and modifying old ones, so check back frequently. The Site News link along the left will show you pages that have changed recently, and you can also subscribe to receive site updates either via email or in your RSS reader.
