It is the new year, which means new year’s resolutions. According to Statista.com’s, America’s Top New Year’s Resolutions for 2020 article, it is a tie for the top between “Manage finances better” and “Eat healthier.” To help get a jump-start on a healthier 2020, we have looked to our cable channel, Food Network for some healthful (yet still delicious) recipes to try this year.
5 Simple Sheet Pan Dinners
Just by cooking more, as compared to eating out or running through the drive thru, you can cut down on sodium and sugar by managing it yourself. We understand cooking takes time, but with these sheet pan dinners, you will have a full meal on the table in under an hour. And don’t forget to line the sheet pan with parchment paper for quick and easy clean-up!
Healthified Broccoli Soup
We still have a while before temperatures start to rise, and some nights all that sounds good is a warm bowl of comforting soup. Don’t think you have to kick creamy soups to the curb completely! By focusing more on using the whole broccoli and measuring out your cheese, the calories come down and the nutrients go up.
Spaghetti Squash Carbonara
If you are looking to cut back on carbs this year, look no further for a delicious pasta substitute. Spaghetti squash has the stringiness like angel hair pasta but a flavor more similar to butternut squash or zucchini. This blends well with the punch of flavors from the Parmesan and pancetta or bacon.
Healthy Peanut Soba Noodles
Meal prepping can seem like a lot of work, but this recipe mixes in one bowl and is ready to go in a mason jar, saving you fridge space. While many people think of a salad for a healthy lunch, try these zesty cold peanut soba noodles! The chewy noodles are a great texture balance to the crunchy veggie slaw.
