More and more I am craving healthy recipes.

Ones that taste just as good as my “bad for you” dinners but don’t leave me feeling horrible about myself after.

I just created a recipe binder for myself and have been stalking Pinterest for the best healthy recipes and these are the ones I am drooling over.

These are the best healthy recipes we are drooling over right now.

Healthy Recipes:

1. Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

[tcb-script async=”” defer=”” src=”//”][/tcb-script]

This healthy recipe honestly sounds like a match made in heaven!

Good carbs from the sweet potatoes, and good protein from turkey meat. It’s a great way to start cooking healthy meals because this one is so easy to prep and make!

2. Zucchini Lasagna 

[tcb-script async=”” defer=”” src=”//”][/tcb-script]

Carbs are usually one of our worst enemies. 1. because they taste so good that they are hard to kick out of the diet, and two because they’re so bad for our bodies!

This usually pasta filled recipe goes healthy by using zucchini instead of lasagna. That’s a healthy recipe if I’ve ever seen one!

3. Burger Bowls

Bowls are super easy and healthy recipes, I totally recommend using them for lunch because you can meal prep them if you need to be on the go during that free hour!
