Monthly Meal Plans and Round-Ups

Welcome to #RecipeMakeover Week!

Welcome to the first day of #RecipeMakeover week!  To celebrate this fun week full of healthier recipes, we have an awesome giveaway for our readers!  Enter below for your chance to win!  And what the heck is #RecipeMakeover??  Well read on to check it out!

After a long winter of snowstorms, stews, and sweets, Spring is the perfect time to get back to the basics – delicious, whole foods and dishes packed with fruits and veggies that are great for your overall health.

To eat a healthier diet, you don’t need to make drastic changes (unless recommended by a doctor).  It’s not about denying yourself that occasional treat…it’s about taking baby steps to reduce the amount of sugar, carbs, red meats, and empty calories in your meals.

This week, I’ve joined forces with 40+ of my food blogger friends to present #RecipeMakeover.  During this week, we’ll all be sharing our favorite better-for-you alternatives to unhealthy dishes.  Follow along on any of the blogs below, or with the hashtag on social media, to find nutritious dishes that are packed with flavor.

And a huge THANK YOU to our sponsors, who have made #RecipeMakeover possible!  They’ve provided a number of awesome products that you can win by entering our #RecipeMakeover giveaway below.

Just follow the instructions below, and you could win the following prize pack:

  • Butter-flavored coconut oil and digestive blend from our sponsor Barlean’s – Barlean’s butter-flavored coconut oil is an organic, dairy-free alternative that can be used as a 1:1 substitution for butter. Their digestive blend is an organic, vegan combination of flaxseed, chai seed, quinoa, unsweetened shredded coconut, and a proprietary pumpkin blend, that is delicious sprinkled into salads, smoothies, oatmeal, and more.
  • Sampler pack of original, mesquite, and applewood Smokin O’s from our sponsor Smokin O’s – Instead of frying, choose a healthier cooking option like grilling! Smokin O’s is an innovative new product that allows you to add a natural wood taste even if you are using a propane grill, and they work great in charcoal grills and smokers too. No soaking, no mess, no wait – just delicious wood flavoring from a 100% natural product with no binders or chemicals.
  • 4 flatbread pizzas from our sponsor American Flatbread – Choose from any of America Flatbread’s 15 all-natural, handmade pizza varieties, available at your local grocery store. These pizzas feature 100% organically grown wheat crusts and are topped with fresh herbs, vegetables, and cheeses (no rBST growth hormone!). They’re all-natural, with no preservatives, artificial colors or flavors, and handcrafted from scratch and par-baked in wood-fired ovens.
  • 5 containers (48 oz) of ice cream from our sponsor Turkey Hill – Ice cream for a health food event? Try out their line of no-sugar-added products for a sweet treat without the guilt or their line of light ice creams, which have a rich taste with a fraction of the fat. They also have a rainbow sherbet option, which is Vitamin C and naturally low in fat. These all make great dessert options for special occasions. Turkey Hill also believes in implementing green initiatives to cut down on waste, reduce packaging, and minimize outputs into the environment.
  • 15 tuna creations pouches from our sponsor StarKist – StarKist tuna pouches all have at least 13 grams of protein, and their BOLD line now includes three gluten-free varieties: Tuna Creations® BOLD Thai Chili Style; Tuna Creations® BOLD Jalapeño; and Tuna Creations® BOLD Hot Buffalo Style.
  • Mueller Spiral-Ultra 4-Blade Spiralizer from blog hosts, The PinterTest Kitchen – this 4-in-1 gadget allows you to spiralize your favorite veggies, and it also has extra attachments for a juicer, mandolin and grater.

This prize pack is valued at over $200, and one lucky winner will get it all! This giveaway is open world-wide (except where prohibited).  A winner will be randomly drawn on April 29, 2017 at the conclusion of #RecipeMakeover, and the winner will be contacted via email.
