Today more people are concerned about healthy diets and looking for healthy recipes that are quick and easy to prepare for busy lifestyles.
We have many recipes on CookingNook.com that fit into a variety of healthy eating plans, in addition to our 'just plain taste good' recipes.
Here is an index of the recipes on the site that are particularly good for us.
Note: One note I would like to add about our healthy recipes: Everyone has their own idea about how to define healthy meals and healthy diets. I have included recipes in this section that are lower in fat, refined carbohydrates and sugar and include very healthy ingredients.
You will find wonderful healthy dinner recipe ideas as well as healthy snack recipes, appetizers, healthy breads and muffins, and tasty healthy dessert recipes.
Yes - it's possible!
For example, our appetizer and casserole recipes that use lots of mayonnaise or cream cheese will be found in the regular index but have been omitted from the healthy recipes section. Are they unhealthy? No, although you may not want to eat them every day. A balanced diet may contain a wide variety of foods.
If you are on a specialty diet, some of these recipes may suit you and some not. Please use your own knowledge and discretion when using these recipes to determine which are most suitable for you and the way you define healthy.
Let's make healthy taste good too!
