31 Healthy Recipes – Fruit & Yogurt Parfait, Fruit Salad, Lemon Chicken, Black Eyed Peas & Tomato Salad, and Tomato Soup

I have some catching up on the blog after a great weekend of healthy cooking (I was a few recipes behind, and Sunday was the perfect day to do some cooking).  Here are the recipes from breakfast and lunch, on my way to 31 healthy recipes during National Nutrition Month. I will follow up with a post on my dinner! Enjoy!

Fruit & Yogurt Parfait

Fruit and Yogurt ParfaitThis recipe is an easy and quick way to get nutrition in the morning! Recipes are great when they are convenient at any time, but expecially in the morning!

Also, the parfait contained the protein, fruit, dairy, and grain to get me energized for a day full of choirs and cooking. Yup, I had a very exciting day ahead of me!

Lemon Chicken

Lemon ChickenThis was a very convenient meal! I took a break from doing my Sunday choirs to marinade the chicken. Then, a few hours later, I was hungry, and the chicken was ready to grill! For a light marinade, the chicken had tons of flavor, and pairing it with the black eyed peas, I had a great meal!

Black Eyed Peas and Tomato Salad

Black Eyes Peas and Tomato SaladYou can go wrong with tomatoes and basil! Though, I was surprised by the black eye peas. I thought the can of black eyes peas was going to ruin the freshness created by the tomatoes and basil, but with the aid of the rice vinegar, the dish turned out very fresh and light!

Wholesome Tomato Soup

Wholesome Tomato SoupThis was my first time making tomato soup. I have ate it all my life, but it has always come from a box or can. So, it was a great experience to make this recipe.

After baking the veggies, I added just the right amount of spices (pepper, salt, and lots of basil). The soup turned out fantastic! Rich, creamy, nutritious, and none of the additives that come in the canned variety! I will be making this recipe again, and the variations that I can try are limitless!

PS: This is a great recipe to make on Sunday and bring to work the next few days.
