Most people know they need to eat healthy but sometimes it’s hard when an unhealthy option simply tastes better! I’m always trying to find recipes that I know are healthy and actually taste good. I also agree with experts that having as much variety in your diet as possible is better for you than always eating the same foods everyday. I know that’s another hard habit to break because we do what’s easiest most of the time and when it comes to food, buying and making the same dishes eliminates variables of stress, the unknown, time etc. We are comfortable with what is familiar and requires as little effort as possible. That’s why my collection of recipes fulfills 3 important qualifications: healthy, relatively uncomplicated and takes 30′ or less to make (sometimes soups needs to simmer longer but that’s easy and you can go back to doing other things).
I hope this next recipe motivates you to try something new and easy and tastes good and is healthy! I found this one on-line and originally had radishes and since I hate radishes, I substituted them for apples but feel free to go back to radishes!
