Today, I am giving you some of my all time favorite healthy alternative recipes I have found through out my health journey. I wanted to make a post showcasing a days worth of recipes because there had been so many times I was looking for just this and could NEVER find it. So here you go! A full days worth of meals! Enjoy.
Breakfast: Overnight Oats
I have been enjoying these overnight oats…like seriously, enjoy is an understatement. They are delicious, filling, and so easy. Win win win! My advise is to prep them on the weekend so you can just grab them in the morning. When I prep these, I’m insured of a nutritious breakfast for the entire week! My favorites are the blueberry, banana nut, and almond joy.
Items I use: Unsweetened Almond Milk (Walmart brand), Quaker Oats Old Fashioned Whole Grain Rolled Oats, Justin’s Maple Almond Butter (when called for), Fresh Thyme Organic Maple Syrup, raw nuts (when called for)
Lunch: Healthy Tortilla Pizza
Alright, this pizza right here, game changer. When I first saw this recipe I literally perked up in my seat. I knew I stumbled upon gold that day (sorry getting a little excited here) I mean a tortilla shell as the crust!? (Kaytlin, calm down). In all seriousness, I eat this probably twice a week. It is that good. It is so savory and just bursting with color. This pizza is a must try for all my fellow pie fans.
Items I Use: Carb Counter Tortilla by La Banderita, Fresh Thyme Organic Tomato and Basil Sauce, and Daiya Dairy Free Mozzarella Cheese.
Dinner: 20 Minute Honey Garlic Shrimp
This dish is so flavorful and such a nice change of pace, or shall I say change of taste? Okay, I’ll stop. Give this recipe a try, I believe it to be a crowd favorite. I made this one night for my fiancee and I, I was a little nervous because he isn’t really a fan of Asian cuisine but he absolutely loved it! It has a “not your everyday” type of flavor but still low key enough for plain taste buds to enjoy. I agree with the post, you should pair with a steamed veggie, the steamed broccoli was out of this world with the sauce!
Items I Use: White quinoa instead of rice, Liquid Aminos instead of Soy sauce, Coconut oil instead of cooking oil.
Dessert: Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies are delicious! They make for a perfect after dinner snack. Or after lunch snack. Or mid morning snack. Just any time of a day snack. The peanut butter and chocolate and chewy oats, just WOW. So simple to make as well! Make sure to use really ripe bananas, you definitely want the banana taste to come through with all the other goodness that is going on. As you will find out, I am a woman with a major sweet tooth and these cookies have made it to the top of my go-to list. These cookies are also filling from the oats, getting positive nutrition from sweets is such a plus in my book!
Items I Use: Fresh Thyme Organic Creamy Peanut Butter, Enjoy Life semi sweet chocolate chips, and a little Stevia (if your bananas are ripe enough, you wont need an added sweetener!)
