Healthy Snacks and Meal Ideas Recipe Roundup
In addition to the Mission for Nutrition website, I’m sharing some of my favorite, I’ve rounded up some recipes from my blog that happed to feature produce from the Mission For Nutrition partners. All of these recipes take about 15 minutes to prep—who doesn’t love that?
(Note: some of them do require longer cooking time like the slow cooker soup or chilling time for optimal flavor, but I count that as hands off time!)
Cucumber Avocado Salsa (Avocados from Mexico)
My Cucumber Avocado Salsa recipe has been around forever and seriously gets gobbled up as soon as it’s set you. The bonus? It’s filled with so many good-for-you vegetables!
Mandarin Tossed Salad (Earthbound Farm)
I found this Mandarin Tossed Salad recipe on an old recipe card of my mom’s. Make up the dressing ahead of time and preparation is even quicker. It’s a perfect side salad for just about anything!
Super Simple Tomato Basil Topped Baked Fish (Nature Fresh)
With only a few ingredients, this Super Simple Tomato Basil Topped Baked Fish is perfect for an easy weeknight meal and it’s budget friendly too! We like to serve it with Wild and Brown Rice Pilaf for a delicious, healthy meal.
Creamy Roasted Red Bell Pepper Dip (Pero Family Farms)
Red peppers IN a dip? Yep! This Creamy Roasted Red Bell Pepper Dip is a great alternative to hummus or the other dips normally served with vegetables or chips. I like to pair it with blue chips to give it a festive look!
Slowcooker French Onion Soup (Shuman Produce)
The star in this recipe is, of course, the onions! With only a handful of ingredients, this Slowcooker French Onion Soup is SO incredibly easy too. Pair it with a garden salad and you’ve got a great light meal.
Watermelon Lemonade Slush (Watermelon Board)
Watermelon Lemonade Slush is a perfect way to use up leftover watermelon. What? You don’t have ever have leftovers? Then save some extra to make up this refreshing drink that literally takes minutes to make!
I hope you’ll join me in the Mission for Nutrition this month by enjoying some tasty, good-for-you meals. Enjoy!
