4 Healthy Side Dishes
In our quest for healthy eating in 2015, we’ve been searching for healthy recipes to fill up our family meal plan. Sure, the main protein in your meal is important, but what about healthy side dishes? What you pair with your meat is just as important as the meat itself. Whether you’re planning on cooking beef, chicken, pork, or fish, these 4 healthy side dishes will help make your delicious family meal complete.
- This Baked Parmesan Zucchini recipe from Jennifer at Jen’s Journey delivers crisp and delicious zucchini sticks with just the right amount of flavor thanks to the Parmesan cheese. These would also be great on your game day appetizer table.
- If you’re looking to add color, fruits, and vegetables to the table, you should really try this Apple and Carrot Slaw Salad from Censie at Building Our Story. This would pair especially well with fish or chicken.
- These Green Bean French Fries from “Meet Kristy” aren’t actually fried and taste even better than your typical potato. They can replace greasy appetizers and side dishes. This healthy side dish echoes pub-grub, but is lower in fat, calories, and cholesterol.
- Love macaroni and cheese, but you can’t eat it because of the gluten? Try this Mockafoni and Cheese recipe from Diana Rambles instead. This healthy side dish is so hearty, you can actually serve it as the main course.
