30 Healthy Recipes using Greek Yogurt #AetnaMyHealthy

A collection of 30 Healthy Recipes using Greek Yogurt, plus healthy eating tips.  

Recently, AETNA posed the question to me – ‘What’s your Healthy?’   While I share recipes ranging from healthy to splurges, I am actually a health and fitness fanatic.  I am often running, at the gym, or chasing my kids.  When not exercising (or baking up delicious desserts to share with you!), I am trying to figure out ways to make our every day foods healthier.

One of my favorite healthy food secret ingredients is Greek yogurt.  It is high in protein and calcium, is delicious plain and also works great in lightening up recipes without sacrificing taste. From dips and pastas to smoothies and desserts, there are so many way recipes can be made healthier using Greek yogurt.  Here I gathered some delicious recipes using Greek yogurt from my favorite food blogger friends.

Another way we maintain a healthy diet is by eating natural, whole foods.  The concept of Clean Eating can be helpful when trying to make healthier choices.  In general, the shorter the list of ingredients the better – or in fact, how about no list ingredients!  Here Ali Sweeney talks a bit about Clean Eating and how you can incorporate it into your lifestyle.

Often our meals are very healthy, but I find our downfall to be snacking.  Juggling two kids and a busy lifestyle, snacks need to be something quick and easy…and around 100 calories.  Here you can watch Ali Sweeney share some easy, healthy 100-calorie snack ideas:
