Healthy Tuesday – Healthy Recipes

We all know a huge part of living healthy is what you put in your body.  Which is why healthy eating is so important when you are wanting to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

This Healthy Tuesday post is going to be slightly different.  What I need/want from you is to leave a comment with one or two of your favorite healthy recipes?  What makes it so great?  Leave a link for it, if you have it.

Anymore I find the yummiest recipes on Pinterest, it seems to be my main go to recipe site/spot anymore.  I’ll leave you with the one I have found to be super great thus far (there have been several).

Recipe is from All Recipes – I take no credit for the actual recipe.

Directions

  1. Season salmon fillets with lemon pepper, garlic powder, and salt.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil until sugar is dissolved. Place fish in a large resealable plastic bag with the soy sauce mixture, seal, and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Preheat grill for medium heat.
  4. Lightly oil grill grate. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard marinade. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

  • This recipe is from the DASH diet from the Mayo Clinic. I have type 2 Diabetes, so the DASH diet is one I have researched a lot, and this is a delicious snack/appetizer that seems a lot more decadent than it actually is.

    Dietitian’s tip: Serve these potato skins, which are a very good source of iron, vitamin B-6 and fiber, with chunky salsa. Two tablespoons of salsa adds less than 10 calories.

    By Mayo Clinic staff
    Serves 6
    Ingredients

    6 large baking potatoes
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1/8 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
    6 slices turkey bacon, cooked until crisp, chopped
    1 medium tomato, diced
    2 tablespoons sliced green onions
    1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

    Directions

    Preheat the oven to 450 F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

    Scrub potatoes and prick each several times with a fork. Microwave uncovered on high until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the microwave and place on a wire rack to cool. When cool to the touch, cut each potato in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch of the flesh attached to the skin. (Save potato flesh for another meal.)

    In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, chili powder and hot sauce. Brush the olive oil mixture on the insides of the potato skins. Cut each half of the potato skin in half again crosswise. Place the potatoes onto the baking sheet.

    In a small bowl gently mix together the turkey bacon, tomato and onions. Fill each potato skin with this mixture and sprinkle each with cheese.

    Bake until the cheese is melted and the potato skins are heated through, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
