1) Sloppy Joes

If you’re looking to try a new healthy food recipe but still want some comfort food, then Sloppy Joes might be what you’re looking for. This classic American recipe is a messy concoction of hamburger meat, pickles, onions and ketchup served on toasted buns. Add some lettuce or tomato to complete your meal.

2) Spinach Omelet with Goat Cheese

If you’re in a rush in the morning, you can whip up an omelet quickly and pair it with a side of whole-grain toast. This spinach omelet recipe calls for goat cheese—it gives extra flavor without additional calories or fat. You can prepare any fruit or veggie along with your egg to make it even healthier.

3) Pesto Stuffed Tomatoes

Pesto is naturally gluten-free and low in fat, and fresh tomatoes are packed with vitamins A and C. If you want to make a healthier meal, consider swapping pesto for your favorite herbs like rosemary or basil. Also, consider switching from butter to olive oil—which has heart-healthy benefits too! This recipe serves four as a main course or eight as an appetizer.

4) Asian Salmon

Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D, which helps your bones absorb calcium. This combination also lowers inflammation in your body and reduces your risk of cancer, heart disease, depression, and arthritis. Cook up some salmon in a spicy Asian marinade to get all these benefits from just one meal. It’s one of our favorite recipes for healthy foods eating at home!

5) Avocado Caprese Salad

This salad tastes just like a caprese salad (tomato, mozzarella, basil) but is healthier because it uses avocados instead of cheese. It’s simple to make: all you need to do is chop up an avocado and toss it with halved grape tomatoes and fresh basil leaves. A sprinkle of salt, pepper, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar turns this into a satisfying meal you can eat any time of day.

6) Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

This healthy soup is incredibly delicious and it’s also very easy to make. Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup only has four ingredients, chicken breast, corn tortillas, tomato sauce and onions. All you have to do is dump everything in a slow cooker and let it cook all day on low heat. This amazing recipe serves 10 people so you will be able to enjoy leftovers for several days.

7) Healthy Food - Turkey Burgers

Tasty, satisfying and healthy, turkey burgers are a smart alternative to beef burgers. When you buy ground turkey, choose a package labeled ground turkey breast or white meat ground turkey. The dark meat version is higher in fat.

8) Grilled Romaine Salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing

Mix together 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons buttermilk, 2 tablespoons sour cream, 1 teaspoon red-wine vinegar, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste. Whisk to combine and refrigerate until chilled. Serve over grilled romaine lettuce hearts tossed with some Parmesan cheese and bacon bits (recipe below).

9) Smoked Salmon Sandwich with Arugula, Dill and Lemon Cream Cheese Spread

A slice of smoked salmon on a fresh baguette with melted lemon cream cheese spread and arugula is sure to become one of your favorite healthy lunchtime meals. This sandwich will keep you full until dinner time, so if you’re trying to lose weight or eat less at meals, make two sandwiches at a time.

10) Apple Crisp

You can’t go wrong with a recipe as classic as apple crisp, especially when it’s healthy. This crisp uses whole-wheat flour and fresh fruit—so you can actually enjoy it without feeling guilty. In fact, you can serve it to your kids and spouse and they won’t even know it’s good for them! That makes it an especially useful recipe during back-to-school season: no one will complain about eating their vegetables when they taste like applesauce!
