As a point of clarification, I want to emphasize that my definition of healthy may not be someone else’s definition of healthy. You may look at a recipe in this category and think to yourself, “She CANNOT really consider that healthy, right?” or conversely, you may be wondering why my Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are not listed under Healthy, they do include oatmeal afterall.
Healthy can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. Sometimes healthy choices can be more about the amount we are eating versus what we are eating (read: small portion sizes). The recipes I have included in my Healthy category are those that are not loaded with creams, cheeses and other fattening, calorie-laden ingredients (although there are plenty of those elsewhere on this site). Light, nutritious, healthy. That’s what this category is all about. Good choices for those days when you want a health-conscious meal.
