I don't know about you, but I always feel squeezed for time. Between work, workouts, physical therapy sessions (I'm getting over a leg injury), and time with my boyfriend and friends, I'm always running from one thing to the next. But that doesn't mean a healthy meal rotation has to be sacrificed. Eating well doesn't have to be expensive or time consuming. I've got a few veggie- and protein-packed dishes I like to cook when I'm busy. These meals prove you can spend less time in the kitchen.
Think filling up on only green juice is the best way to lose weight? I come across awful diet tips like this all the time. Luckily, you don't need to give up pizza (or dessert!) to reach your wellness goals. Want to know which health recommendations are actually worth following?
Some weight-loss tactics like fad diets can be extreme. But thankfully, you don’t need to make drastic changes to live a nutritious lifestyle. I focus on simple swaps—like using fruit instead of maple syrup on my French toast—to stay healthy without having to skip dessert. Wondering how I lighten up the rest of my favorite meals?
How about a delicious, cheesy pizza that’s also loaded with nutrient-rich veggies? Did I mention that it’s also super easy to make? This blog post is sponsored by Flatout. Mushrooms are one of my favorite foods. If I could eat only five foods for the next month, mushrooms would be one of them. In fact, I love them so much that I once visited Italy during mushroom season so I could get my fill of fresh ones.
Ever find yourself staring into your fridge, wondering how on earth you're going to put together a healthy meal without fresh ingredients? I know we've all been there, especially when a trip to the grocery store is overdue. The thought of healthy cooking without fresh fruits and vegetables may seem daunting, but it is possible! Instead of turning to take-out, stock up on nonperishable pantry staples like canned goods and spices so you'll always be ready to cook something quick.
Swap a traditional tomato sauce base for pureed sweet potato, and you’ll get a boost of eye-helping vitamin A! This flatbread pizza is beyond delicious. Over my many pizza-loving years, I’ve enjoyed traditional pizzas with tomato sauce, as well as white pizzas and ones drizzled with pesto. But when I started thinking about how to add extra nutrition to my pizza, I realized I’d never had a pizza with sweet potato. So I set out to create a tasty and nutrient-rich version!
When I think of Olive Garden, I think back to when I was 18. It was dinnertime there but breakfast in Miami, where I landed with my friend Deborah. Her grandparents took us to Olive Garden for "dinner," and we got there just as the restaurant was opening and the staff was practicing the "happy birthday" song. All memories aside, I've been at least occasionally eating at the restaurant since I was a kid, so I definitely appreciate a healthier option (or two or three). I'm sure you do, too!
Wondering what to eat while commuting? Try these snacks that are perfect for the daily commuter. When I was younger, my friends played a "what's in Amy's purse?" game. They'd laugh because there might be a spoon in there, and there would always be one or two snack choices. And a bottle of water and...you get the picture. I never like to be in a situation in which I'm forced to eat something that's less than nutritious, so I always have my just-in-case purse snacks on hand.
