These are easy healthy recipes that I have used, and several other moms I know contributed as well. It is so much easier to be healthy if you are eating the great majority of your food at home.
Cooking can be intimidating, but these recipes break it down so that they are easy to follow, and as you get a feel for these recipes you can start to create your own.
Cooking used to stress me out, and then as I started to learn more about different flavors it became a restful outlet for me. Now I go into the kitchen and I see where the food takes me instead of following a strict recipe. It's become a stress reliever to me, and pouring myself into the food I make has become an escape from the other stresses of life. Not only are these recipes nourishing to my body and the bodies of my family, but they have become a restful place for my soul as well.
Regardless of body type or genetic factors, everyone should be eating more plants than anything else. Genetic factors, body type, and activity level play a roll in the proportion of other things like grains and protein. You can read about what I call healthy eating, if you need help deciding what kind of portions are appropriate for you and your family.
Below is an image of the whole30's meal portion plan, which is a good guide line, but like I said portions for different people differ depending on genetics, lifestyle, and body type.
Most Americans get far more protein in their diet than is necessary, which is part of the reason we have an epidemic of obesity in this country. For me, I like to incorporate protein and carbs as a side, and make vegetables my main course. I like to cook with healthier meats, making fish and fowl staples and red meat as an occasional food.
I've tried to divide my recipes up into categories that make it easier to design an entire healthy meal that fits your needs.
