Healthy Meals That Your Family Will Love

As a committed mom, you want your family to be healthy and happy. Plan healthy meals for every time of day, so your kids get the nutrients they need to grow and thrive. There are a number of natural foods and alternative ingredients that are packed with flavor, antioxidants, protein and a myriad of nutrients. Here are some healthy dishes that are easy to whip up for your family that they will love:

Gluten-Free Quiche

Start the morning off right with a protein-packed, crustless quiche. The beauty of quiche is that you can cook it the night before, which makes it a perfect weekday breakfast when you’re on the go. Keep the quiche simple and healthy with lots of veggies, minimal cheese, and no crust. There are a number of flavor variations for this dish: French-inspired with caramelized onions, spinach, goat cheese, and lean ham; or farm fresh with broccoli, mushrooms, sauteed kale, bell peppers, onion and lite cheddar cheese. You can choose your desired ingredients, but one thing you must do is make sure the eggs are mixed together thoroughly for a solid filling that isn’t separated into bits of separated egg yolks and egg whites.

Smoothie Bowls

Antioxidants are found in a number of natural foods, which will help boost your family’s immune system, increase their energy and contribute to their overall wellness. Blend up a mixture of berries, greens, coconut milk, almond butter and vegan protein until it is a thick consistency like ice cream. Pour the smoothie into a bowl and top it with sliced almonds, blueberries, hemp seeds, cacao nibs and unsweetened coconut flakes.

Lemon Herb Chicken with Roasted Root Vegetables

Lemon, Rosemary and Thyme are a classic flavor combination that makes roasted chicken into a delectable dish. This lean protein dish pairs well with root vegetables, like brussels sprouts, yams, and heirloom potatoes. First, toss the sliced root vegetables in avocado oil—a healthy alternative to olive oil because it lowers blood pressure and detoxes your body—and bake in the oven until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Take the chicken breast meat and rub it with salt, pepper, avocado oil, fresh chopped rosemary and thyme and lemon zest. Roast the chicken in the oven until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Sprinkle lemon juice on top for a little extra zing and garnish with fresh rosemary and thyme.

Asada Tacos with Casava Tortillas

Tacos are a DIY dinner that the kids will love, as they can choose their own toppings and have a part in the creation of their food. Rather than the traditional corn tortillas, you should opt for a healthy alternative of paleo-friendly casava tortillas. Casava is a woody shrub native to South America, has a low glycemic index and balances gut flora. When it comes to using casava, it is better to purchase premade products, as properly cooking the root can be tricky and could result in food illness. Siete’s Casava and Coconut Flour tortillas are conveniently premade and easy to find at most health food stores. For the taco fillings, sautee organic, grass-fed beef that have been cut into bite-sized pieces. Pair the protein with veggies like shredded romaine lettuce, diced tomatoes, sauteed bell peppers, and pico de gallo salsa. You could also make a vegan queso dip with cashews, water, salt, nutritional yeast, green bell peppers, and jalapenos.

Healthy eating is possible for the whole family! Whether you make small, healthier substitutions to classic meals or conscientiously create a new, nutritious dish you can integrate meals that will please your family and support their wellness.
