The Most Fun Place to Find Healthy Recipes

Last month I mentioned how much I love MyPlate and how I’m sad that more people don’t know about it.

Well, the Partnership for a Healthier America, Let’s Move!, MyPlate and the nation’s top recipe creators have come together to offer hundreds of tasty recipes to anyone looking for healthier meals.

What’s your favorite place to look for healthy recipes?

AllrecipesBetter Homes & GardensCookingLightCountryLivingDelishDiabeticLivingOnlineEatingWellEpicuriousEveryday with Rachael, AND Woman’sDay all offer some great, healthy, MyPlate recipes.

What is a MyPlate recipe?

MyPlate recipes use key foods for a healthy diet, emphasizes foods in their simplest forms and encourages people to eat the right size portions. These recipes aim for limiting added sugars and saturated fats, just as the Dietary Guidelines recommend. The big idea here is to help home cooks connect delicious recipes to the food groups on MyPlate: vegetables, fruits, dairy, whole grains, and proteins.

Okay, enough information. Now’s the fun part.

All of these awesome recipe sources I mentioned above have MyPlate recipes posted all in one place.

Where can I find MyPlate recipes?

On the one and only Pinterest! And as of the time I am writing this, there are 916 pins on 27 boards on the MyPlate Recipes Pinterest page.

  1. I just followed MyPlate on Pinterest! What a GREAT idea, especially since Pinterest is filled with all sorts of less-than healthy recipes.
