I’ve been on a major fruit and veggie kick lately. Ever since doing Whole 30, I’ve really realized just how important it is to eat healthy fruits and vegetables daily. When I grocery shop, 90 percent of my cart is fresh produce.
Believe it or not, there are tons of flavorful and unique recipes you can make using ONLY fruits and vegetables as the ingredients. Today I’ve rounded up 10 such recipes. A disclaimer though: Some of these recipes will call for dressings and toppings but you can easily leave those off if you really do only want the fruits and veggies!
Sweet Potato Fries. This is my favorite way to eat a sweet potato. Obviously. Crisp and delicious, these babies are way healthier than your normal french fries! Try this recipe from Simply Recipes next time you need a treat.
Baked Kale Chips. Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet and I actually happen to love it. Baked kale chips have become trendy lately, and for good reason! This recipe from Nom Nom Paleo will teach you just how to make them.
Avocado Corn Salad. Avocado anything is my very favorite. Plain, mixed with things, you name it. This healthy avocado and corn salad from Well Beauty Blog would go great alone or served with chips or your favorite entrée.
Baked Zuchinni Chips. Now this recipe from Skinny Ms calls for cheese to bake the Zucchini in but I leave the cheese off and simply slice the zucchini and bake it so it’s only the vegetable! These guys come out so crisp and delicious. You can also use squash to make these. They are so healthy for you and taste way better when baked!
Cucumber Watermelon Salad. This salad from All Recipes is perfect for a warm summer day. Cucumber and watermelon are both so refreshing. Serve it up with a nice cold glass of lemonade.
Raw Veggie Salad. Most of the meals I eat are raw like this. They really don’t require any cooking and hardly any prep time. They’re easy and most importantly, they’re healthy! Nothing beats crunchy veggies like this salad from The Kitchn.
Beet And Bell Pepper Salad. While beets may not be up my alley, plenty of people like them. If you’re one of those people, I think you’ll enjoy this twist on a classic from Leas Cooking that includes some bell peppers.
Fruit Skewers. Beautiful rainbow skewers like these ones from Pochedemaman will be a hit with your kids, and you’ll love them too!
Cauliflower Rice. Cauliflower rice has become a staple in my house since adopting a whole 30 lifestyle. It’s so healthy, it’s easy to make, and I love serving my favorite vegetables on top of it. It’s way less calories and healthier for you than regular white rice and it honestly does taste good! Learn how to make it by using this recipe from Everyday Maven.
