Personally I love cooking, but I know I’m in the minority. When I think about it, what honestly got me interested in cooking was looking at mouthwatering photos on food blogs. Many blogs often have step-by-step photos too, which definitely helped when I was starting out and learning to cook.
Besides being budget-friendly, cooking at home is probably the easiest way to get or stay healthy. Here are some favorites to help you stay on your A game this year!
For those newly trying healthier eating habits, this power salad (1) is proof that salad doesn’t necessarily mean boring greens and veggies. Quinoa, almonds, and avocado are all amazing for your skin and hair, so consider this a beauty supplement.
What makes this kale salad (2) a standout is the creamy citrus dressing. One of the most popular superfoods, kale is surprisingly high in protein so you’ll be satisfied and feel full for longer.
These delicious crispy quinoa patties (3) are amazing as appetizers, on top of salads, or wrapped into a tortilla. Super versatile and protein-rich, think of them as a new lunchtime staple.
For those weekend cravings that won’t go away, this spaghetti squash pad thai (4) is a must-save. Low in carbs but with similar texture to noodles, spaghetti squash is a weekly eat that works with any kind of sauce.
Blueberries and almond butter sounds like a strange combination, but this smoothie (5) packs a heavy punch on the nutrients and actually tastes amazing. Prep at night and just take it to go in the morning for a quick breakfast.
When you need to pull out all the stops, this roasted almond crusted salmon with pomegranate glaze (6) is a winner. Heart-healthy and full of fats that are good for you, try this on a date night.
