Are you someone who has nagging conversations with yourself about food?!
You know the one… I know I should be eating a spinach salad but all I want is cheese and bread, with a little chocolate on the side.
Sometimes when our lives are spiralling out of control or we have too much on our plate we just don’t make time to eat healthy and to give ourselves the fuel we need to make it through the day.
I am guilty of this.Sometimes eating healthy is just too much work. If you're feeling this way, give these 12 Healthy Recipes a try. They taste great and are so easy to make! #healthyrecipes #cleaneating Click To Tweet
I think we all know what is good for us and how to truly eat healthy, yet we choose the easier path of getting takeout, throwing a pizza in the oven or skipping meals.
I am on a quest this week (and well, always) to ‘start my health kick’. (My friends and family have heard this from me a thousand times).
The fact that I have a hard time eating perfectly healthy every single day shows that I am in fact human and I should stop putting guilt on myself. However, I SHOULD BE eating healthy more often than not. This includes more green vegetables, lean meats and less cookies with my tea!
To help myself and you my amazing reader, I have put together a roundup of recipes that are not only good for you, they are also easy to make and are a dance party in your mouth 🙂
I hope you enjoy!

This recipe is mine and it’s my go-to for BBQ’s, as a topper for a green salad and to keep in the fridge in small containers to grab as a snack. It tastes best if you make the day before eating to really let the flavours combine.

I had to include this as there is nothing better than eating loads of greens. To make this recipe a little healthier swap the butter for olive oil or avocado oil. I also like to add a poached egg on top and it makes a well rounded and filling breakfast or lunch. Sooo good!

…and for those with a sweet tooth, give these recipes a try.
Yes, they may not be as healthy as raw green vegetables, but they are great to have on hand as a healthier option 🙂
I love having snacks like this, especially when they trick you into thinking you’re having dessert! These apple nachos are drizzled with cashew butter and topped with raisins. This is the perfect mid-afternoon snack to last you to dinner. Tangly. Filling. Delicious 🙂

Another recipe of mine. I started making this when I was about 10 years old! You could say that it’s a favourite of mine. Made with whole wheat flour this muffin is moist, delicious and full of fibre. I like to freeze healthy muffins and grab one on my way out the door. They defrost quickly.
