Welcome to Day 10 of the Minimize Yo’ Butt 6-Week Fitness Challenge
Cooking healthy doesn’t have to be complicated. You can probably tell from the title of this post that I like keeping my cooking as simple as possible.
I know from personal experience that if things get too complicated in the planning and preparing of food, that is the quickest way for it to not get done. Those are times when I’m most tempted to order pizza or pick up something quick while we’re out.
I thought it would be helpful to share a couple of my favorite sources for simple recipes. I hope you enjoy them and find them helpful for your own family.
You can’t get much simpler than a 5 ingredients recipe. Jules from The Stone Soup makes some absolutely incredible dishes. It’s hard not to get distracted by how gorgeous the photos are. It just makes me want to cook it all because everything looks incredible!
Jules is a fellow minimalist so she knows the importance of keeping things simple.
Some of my favorite posts you’re sure to enjoy from The Stone Soup include:
I highly encourage you to check out the 5-Ingredient Cookbooks that Jules has to offer. If you sign up for email updates you will get another beautiful cookbook for FREE. There is a nice balance of simple healthy recipes and indulgent dishes. We all need a special treat once in awhile.
Jules also offers video instruction throughout her site and her books that is just fun to watch and salivate over. If you enjoy her cooking videos, you might also be interested in her Virtual Cookery School. I’ve really enjoyed the free videos from Jules and I’m really interested in doing her Virtual Cookery School in the future. Her simple approach to cooking and creative recipes always make me wish I was more accomplished in the kitchen.
I use All Recipes all the time! I have used them for years as one of my favorite recipe sources. It is a very rare occasion that I can’t find a recipe I’m looking for. So I was super excited to find out they have an entire section for Healthy Recipes.
Recipes are also sorted by special dietary groups like: Gluten-free, dairy-free, diabetic, low-carb, and more. It’s pretty neat. One of my favorite features of All Recipes is that every recipe can be scaled up or down for the number of servings you need. This is great for gatherings or if you have a big family at home like I do.
Do you have any favorite sources for healthy recipes? I’m always looking for new ideas.
It’s not too late to start minimizing your butt and getting healthy! If you missed out on the first week of the challenge, you can go to the Minimize Yo’ Butt page and see all the posts listed for you. If you’ve already been doing the challenge, I’d love to hear how your progress is going.
