Happy New Year!! I hope you had a great celebration.
A new year for many of us means it is time to get our waistlines back on track. I know many hear the “D” word and associate it with bad food, hunger pangs and deprivation. Eating healthier or being on a diet doesn’t have to mean any of that. Over the month of January I will be sharing my healthy eating tips to keep on track with our weight loss. But for now I leave you with these 13 healthy recipes for a healthy start to 2013. Enjoy!
Roasted Tomatoes are a great snack and can also be added to sandwiches, pastas, noodles, rice or served on the side of lean meat dishes.
Indian Eggplant Curry is a great vegan meal or can also be served as a side dish.
Red Chicken Pozole, this version is healthier than the standard pork pozole.
Ejotes con Huevos or Mexican Green Beans with Eggs, served with mashed pinto beans for a light meal.
Spicy Spaghetti with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, carbs are only bad in large serving sizes. This light pasta uses olive oil as the “sauce” and is healthier than cream based sauces.
Persimmon, Avocado and Serrano Ham Salad, this salad has a little bit of everything. As long as you keep the ham and cheese to reasonable sizes the salad will stay healthy.
Jalapeno Plum Sauce and Spring Rolls with Plum Sauce, great as a light meal or as a healthy snack. Tofu can be substituted with shrimp or chicken.
Thai Curried Fried Rice with Fish, don’t add too much oil to the rice to keep it healthy and light.
Pepinos Con Chile y Limon Or Cucumbers with Chile and Lime (vegan), if you need a snack reach for these. The water content in the cucumbers keeps you full.
Homemade Non Separating Almond Milk, makes a great alternative to cow milk.
Bistec en Salsa Roja (Steak in Red Salsa) use a lean cut of beef and cutaway any extra fat.
Easy Miso Udon Soup, a great lunch or light dinner.
Almond Butter Baked Apples, for when you’re craving something sweet.
