Introduction for Recipes for Health
In the fast-paced world in which we live, we are constantly surrounded by fast food, 24-hour restaurants, late-night delivery, all-you-can-eat buffets, and more. There are convenience foods around every corner. Because of this, many people don't prepare their own meals at home. However, cooking doesn't have to be difficult, expensive, or time-consuming. There are many benefits to preparing meals at home, especially being able to control exactly what you are putting into your mouth and using the freshest ingredients.
In May, we celebrate our moms and the other special women in our lives. Give the women (or men!) in your lives "recipes for health." The following recipes provide a variety of options that are all budget-friendly, fresh, and, most importantly, healthy!
The following sections include 17 written recipes divided up into breakfast, lunch, and dinner, three of which are also shown in a video cooking demonstration (Fruit Smoothie, Southwestern Turkey Wrap, and Simple Stir Fry). I hope you and the people important in your lives will enjoy healthy meals together that are both fun to prepare and enjoyable to eat!
