Happy Tuesday everyone!
So often I hear how people have a hard time figuring out how to eat healthy and what to cook. Bethany decided to host a dinner party at her house last week and I thought it would be a great opportunity to share with you all how hosting a healthy potluck can really help you out in these areas.
Bethany asked everyone to bring a healthy dish of their choice, with everyone knowing we are all mostly vegetarians; all of the dishes were veggie friendly. If you are not vegetarian you can still make healthy meat and fish dishes! What was so fun about having a healthy potluck is that you can learn great new recipes from your friends that you might want to start making at home! We definitely did! :)
For this potluck, Bethany made a tofu and kale stir-fry, a spinach arugula salad with pomegranate and avocado (you can find a similiar recipe here!) and also a lentil soup. (Which we will be posting on Thursday, so stay tuned for that!) Lauren made a spaghetti squash dish. Alex brought green beans and a cauliflower dish. Merissa made a spicy quinoa dish with veggies. I made a Mediterranean pita dish with mixed veggies (Which I will be posting soon as well!)
Try hosting your own healthy potluck! It’s a really great way to learn new recipes and to get your friends involved who already eat healthy and/or for those who might be struggling with how to eat healthier.
