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!
The BEST Fruit Salad with a sweet and bright honey lime dressing! It’s an incredibly refreshing, must have side dish that’s made with beautiful blend of delicious fruits and a simple dressing to compliment it. This is always sure to be a crowd favorite!
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.
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.
Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad is a fresh and light side dish perfect for summer BBQs and potlucks. Grill the corn for a little extra something special. It’s a fresh and light side dish that screams summer!
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!
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.
Yes, there is technically quinoa in this recipe, but the rest is veggies. 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 Cookie and Kate that includes some bell peppers.
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.
