Food on Friday ~ Healthier Eating

It’s not a short term diet ~ it’s a long term lifestyle change

I’ve been spending a little time thinking about leading a healthier life ~ well you do when you get to a certain age.  Fresh air, sunshine, exercise, meditation, reading self-improvement books, listening to inspirational podcasts, and eating the ‘right’ foods.  The snag is there are as many ideas about what constitutes a healthy diet as there are diets.

However, for me eating better means cutting out a lot of fat, being as gluten-free as I can manage, and not eating dairy ~ I’m slightly lactose intolerant anyway.  Instead of those things I’m not going to eat I’m planning on a lot more organic fruits and vegetables.  Ergo, today’s recipes are kind of leaning towards the long term lifestyle change I’m working on.

One benefit of the healthy eating plan I’m working towards is that, in general, the recipes are very easy.

First up this week, from Elise Bauer at Simply Recipes we have this easy cucumber salad, and you can’t get a simpler recipe than this one.

Next, from Heidi at Foodie Crush we have this great recipe for the best BBQ chicken ~ chicken is firmly part of my healthier lifestyle.

The Best BBQ Chicken

There’s gluten-free, and there’s not eating anything made from wheat, and then there’s the fact that sometimes you’ve just got to have pasta.  This slow roasted tomato basil pasta is as healthy as pasta can get ~ from Jessica Merchant at How Sweet Eats.  Personally, I will be using gluten-free pasta ~ gluten is nasty stuff.

Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest has this cool recipe for a corn, tomato, and avocado pasta salad ~ this is such a quick recipe, and as I said sometimes one just has to have pasta.

Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Pasta Salad

This is a fabulous dish from Tiffany at Creme de la Crumb; one pan garlic herb chicken and asparagus ~ and it doesn’t get any better than that.

Oily fish is an important part of a healthy eating lifestyle, and from Delish we have 45 healthy salmon recipes, including this brilliant foil pack grilled salmon with lemony asparagus ~ it seems that lemon is good for you.
