I am not a cook by any means but I want to eat healthy and lose some weight. I'm looking for good healthy recipe websites, with easy recipes and great tasting food. Any recommendations? I would greatly appreciate it.

    Buy fresh. Cruise the produce aisles. Pick something new. Google a recipe.

    I really like Iowa Girl Eats. Almost all of her recipes are GF (but my family isn't GF). I also like SkinnyTaste. She has amazing dressing/dip recipes.

    When I started I used Hungry Girl a lot, I haven't kept all the recipes as many contain odd ingredients, but I really like how she has a sub for everything. I keep a few I learned in her books. I also say skinnytaste. I just found spark recipes like yesterday, I love how the calories are laid out clearly.

    I've used a couple recipes off and they have recipes there for those who can't cook, 7 ingredients or less, etc. It can also help you organize recipes by day and print out (or have it on your app) your shopping list to make those dishes.

    There's also recipes here and their cookbooks I like.
  • kristinak48kristinak48 Posts: 109Member Member Posts: 109Member Member , PINTEREST (just search for anything you are looking for and you'll find great recipes--and it's super easy to plug into the recipe maker on MFP to calculate) Cooking Light, Eating Well are all great.
