Good ‘n healthy Recipes
LG Health’s signature good ‘n healthy recipes are one of the more popular sections of the Health Hub. Created in conjunction with LG Health dietitians, the nearly 150 appetizers, entrees, and desserts help blog readers enjoy healthier versions of the foods they love. In addition, many recipes address dietary trends and specific health interests like diabetes, weight management, cancer, pregnancy, and heart health.
Wellness Dietitian Janelle Glick, MA, RD, LDN, recently posted a Power Bowl recipe to the Health Hub. Power Bowls are a great way to eat clean with color, crunch, and energy-boosting protein.
“Clean eating is an approach to healthy eating that focuses on consuming unprocessed, whole foods as close to their natural form as possible,” says Janelle. “And it can also be simple when you choose whole grains and fresh seasonal vegetables to create tasty dishes.”
- Quinoa is a healthy whole grain that is rich in protein, fiber, and vitamins.
- Chicken is just one option for lean protein, but others such as egg, black beans, tofu, lean pork or steak can be used.
- Choose an assortment of greens and veggies with dark, intense colors to get the most nutrients.
- Avocado is a great source of heart-healthy fats and gives it a creamy texture.
