10 Healthy Recipes to Make in May
Every month I write these round up posts and I always say, “how is it already XX month?!”, and this month is no different. How is it already May?! How have I already been married for two months?! How is it almost the summer?! I clearly have lots of questions. While it feels like time is flying, it somehow simultaneously feels like it’s taking it’s sweet time as well. I don’t really know how to explain that, but that’s how I’m feeling, haha!
Enough talk about the time and all of it’s weirdness. Let’s chat about healthy recipes you need to make this month. I like to look at each month as a new opportunity to try something new in the kitchen. Obviously, as a food blogger, it’s my job to try and create new recipes, but even I can get in a rut. But, the simple act of creating these monthly roundups actually helps to inspire me. I’m reminded of different flavor combinations I’ve created in the past and inspired to continue to mix things up and try something new.
If you’re getting bored with healthy eating, one of the best things you can do is to try new recipes. It keeps things fresh and interesting so you’re never bored. Pin this post to your recipe board on Pinterest, bookmark or favorite it, and return to it throughout the month when you need a little recipe inspiration!
These Sheet Pan Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowls are the perfect easy weeknight meal and basically taste like homemade Chipotle bowls. All you need is 30 minutes and your favorite burrito toppings to make the most delicious and healthy dinner. These would be a great Cinco de Mayo option, too!
If you haven’t tried sweet potatoes and guac yet, you’re missing out! These Southwest Style Sweet Potato Wedges and Guacamole make a great snack or side dish. They flavors pair perfectly together and they’re a great appetizer option for a party!
I’m hitting it heavy with the Mexican and Tex-Mex inspired recipes this month in honor of Cinco de Mayo! These Slow Cooker Carnitas Taco Salad Bowls are super easy because most of the work is done in the slow cooker. All you really have to do is shred the pork and assemble the bowls for a quick and easy dinner!
Need an easy breakfast meal prep recipe to try out this month? These Loaded Breakfast Egg Muffins are delicious and such a great grab and go option when you’re running out the door on those busy mornings. Just make a batch Sunday night and enjoy them all week long.
This Banana Bread Chia Seed Pudding was one of the most popular recipes on All the Healthy Things in April. It basically blew up on Pinterest and I completely understand why. This simple breakfast recipe can be prepped in five minutes the night before and tastes just like banana bread!
Last, but certainly not least, these simple Roasted Brussel Sprouts are great weeknight veggie side option. Personally, I love how crispy these get when you roast them!
