I decided to start doing some healthy cooking over the past couple weeks! Here are 4 clean eating choices I’ve made that I have grown to LOVE.
- For my sweet tooth: Chia Seed Pudding
No one has a larger sweet tooth than I do… no one. So when I discovered this recipe to fulfill my sweet craving AND fill my body with nutritious vitamins & antioxidants, I was pretty thrilled. PS the mason jar is tinted blue, that’s not the color of the pudding.

- For my salty/snacky craving: Kale Chips
I started making these for my husband. Natalia: Sweets :: Nick: Snacks.
We LOVE these. My husband gobbled them all up. They have a really crispy texture and delicious flavor. Yummy like potato chips, but WAY healthier. I made it my own way, but it’s similar to this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/baked-kale-chips/
- For a quick & healthy breakfast: Oatmeal
I don’t necessarily love oatmeal, but I do like it. I make it with milk, brown sugar, almond butter & cinnamon. You can top it with fruits, nuts or greek yogurt (for additional health benefits). And did you know that oats are amongst the world’s healthiest foods? I sure didn’t… Oats supposedly lower your risk of type 2 diabetes, reduce risk of cardiovascular disease (because of it’s antioxidants) AND can increase milk supply (for all you nursing moms). Perfect for my breakfast.
- To make my entrees healthier: Brown Rice instead of white rice
Great switch for the kwok family because we consume rice nearly every dinner. Need I say more?
What are some of your clean eating habits?
