Five Recipes for 2014

Happy Friday y'all! Today I'm bringing you five recipes I think we can all try since every single one of us is on that same bandwagon- eat healthy! I'll be the first to tell you it doesn't happen for me every day. There, I said it. Do we occasionally get fast food? Yes. Are we in time crunches or just cannot think of something healthy to eat at the end of the day?  Does that mean takeout? Yes. But, then there are other days that we eat pretty good. And as long as I'm shooting for more of those "good" days, then I'm happy with that.

Blueberry Mango Smoothie
This recipe is so simple for a delicious smoothie in the morning. Blueberries have so many benefits and I think paired with mango it would be delicious!


I love that this smoothie uses almond milk. The smoothies I have made before have used yogurt, which make it thicker. I can't wait to try this version!


For those nights when the husband really wants some wings...these are baked, not fried and made with out any butter! 


Stephen and I try to partake in meatless Monday. I really don't mind missing meat at all, but the hubs is a little different. I'm hoping I can make him these black bean wraps, maybe at least for lunch.

These are my favorite turkey burgers, but I've never mentioned them on the blog before. They are packed with flavor and the sauce is delicious. Let me know if you try them! And of course, you could always sub the bun for lettuce to make them even healthier.


Linking up with the ladies of Five on Friday! Hope y'all enjoy the first weekend of 2014!

I am obsessed with anything Mango at the moment! Even bought a can of them at the grocery store just because I'd never seen them in a can..... (probably a terrible idea haha) I can't wait to make those lettuce wraps too- thanks for sharing and happy weekend!
