Are you looking for ways to kick your body into gear this year? There’s no better way to set your body up for success than to eat healthy – and no better way to eat healthy than to find truly yummy foods that just happen to be nutritious. Cape House recommends you try some of these energy-boosting recipes to help you set off on the right foot in 2021.
Instant Pot Ground Beef Chili
Nothing sounds better on a cool winter night than a warm and meaty chili – but there are some chili hangers-on (I’m looking at you, 2.5-pound bag of shredded Mexican cheese blend) that can make this seasonal favorite sit heavier than it needs to. Check out this Nom Nom Paleo recipe for an option that gives you the goods and leaves the rest out.
Chicken & Gnocchi Dumpling Soup
While we’re in the warm-you-up-in-a-bowl category, try out some alternative soup recipes, like this clean take on chicken and dumplings. It’s fast to prepare, kid-friendly, and it’ll fill you up on protein and veggies.
Mexican Sweet Potatoes
It’s game day, and you’re looking for an option that will fuel you up to get out and play yourself – rather than land you on the sofa to sleep the day away. Skip the nachos and go for loaded Mexican Sweet Potatoes with black bean salsa, a nutrient-rich, veggie-forward option that satisfies and energizes.
Salmon Quinoa Burgers
If burgers are your thing, that makes sense, because they taste so amazingly good. Cut back on saturated fat by mixing in a beef alternative occasionally, like these savory Salmon Quinoa Burgers. They’re packed with so much protein you’ll be looking for a mountain to run up after dinner.
Healthy Bacon & Pumpkin Pasta
This bacon and pumpkin pasta is a low-calorie, nutrient-dense option for the nights when you feel like a rib-sticking noodle dish. It has health benefits, is only 300-calories per serving, and it has bacon.
Yummy Chocolate Avocado Pudding
Feel-good dessert options are crucial to eating in a way that fuels your body rather than slowing it down. If you haven’t found one you love yet, keep trying! Start out with this creamy chocolate and avocado pudding for a boost of healthy fats and fiber.
Apple Pie Blondies
Let’s be real: You will likely be surrounded by enticing leftover holiday pies for the foreseeable future. Get ahead of the game and bake up these Healthy Apple Pie Blondies – a sweet and decadent option with zero refined sugar.
