June Recipe Challenge!

30 days of recipes starts today on https://www.facebook.com/BeAndEatWell

Happy June 1st!

Welcome to Day 1!

In case you missed it, I will be posting a new recipe each day for the month of June. My intention for this endeavor is to provide you with not only delicious, balanced recipes to support you on your journey of weight management or diabetes management but also to give you a “virtual cookbook tour.” There are SO many recipe websites out there, it can feel overwhelming. I will provide you with recipes and websites that you can bookmark and use as your “go-to’s” when searching for something new but simple to prepare. Just think how many resources you’ll have by the end of the month!

Here is the breakdown of the recipe content by weeks:

June 1-7: Breakfast
June 8-14: Lunch
June 15-21: Dinner
June 22-28: Snacks
June 29-30: Surprise!

As we dive into June, think about your own self-care goals towards weight management and diabetes management. Whether its balanced eating, more movement, better quality sleep, improved stress management or more energy, we can agree we need the fuel to give us the strength to continue moving forward with our goals. Let’s use Food as Medicine to promote our physical and mental health & well-being.

So let’s get to it! Skinnytaste is one of my favorite go-to recipe websites. I love how organized and colorful the site looks visually and Gina, the author, keeps her posts short, light and to the point. You’re also not having to tune out background ads or continuously scroll to find the actual recipe.

Now that we are heading into summer, you may be wanting something different that your typical bowl of hot oatmeal. Have you tried overnight oats??? So many ingredient combinations available (also depending on your individual macro-nutrient goals such as high protein/low carb), but here is one to get you started. Take advantage of the fresh produce coming in, such as strawberries, blueberries and blackberries! So much fiber and nutrition!

I encourage you to browse the site and see what catches your eye. Personally, I’m going to check out her baked oatmeal as well! Let me know what you think of overnight oats and it what ingredient combinations you use in the comments below!

Here’s to you and your own health and self-care this month! Happy cooking! 💖
