Happy Wednesday all! After the holidays, I’d been feeling really lethargic and tired from lack of exercise and eating poorly. It’s a familiar feeling most of us have after this time of year, and even though I did a lot better eating-wise than I usually do this time of year, they’re still not my normal eating habits or routine which still puts my body out of whack (I’m usually a pretty healthy eater). As of about a week and a half ago, I buckled down and made myself a healthy grocery list packed with veggies, lean proteins, fruit, and a few other healthy things. I found that stocking up on healthy proteins has helped a great deal (any kind of beans, white fish, salmon, chicken, turkey, nuts and seeds, quinoa, chickpeas, etc.). I’d definitely recommend keeping them in the house — they’re the perfect base/key ingredient for a lot of healthy and hearty recipes. I’ve compiled 5 different recipes to start you off if you’re overwhelmed (spaghetti squash, soups, zucchini noodles, and peppers are a few of the fun ingredients in these recipes). I’d love to hear your favorites in the comments!
