Favorite Easy Healthy Recipes of 2015


Yesterday, I had to fast for my Thryoid and Nutrient Panel tests for my Clinical Nutritionist that I mentioned on Monday. Which of course got food on my mind (who am I kidding, when is it not?).  And being as it is Friday, which means that it is time for Five (Mar + Cynthia + Courtney) Foodie (Annmarie + Esther + Jess + Farrah) + Friday Favorites (Heather), I thought that today would be the perfect time to round up some of my favorite easy healthy recipes of the year! This way, we can all go into the new year with our healthiest foot forward. 

So I am going to break it down a bit differently. #likeasuz

I've rounded up my favorite easy healthy recipes for after workouts, entertaining, and more! This healthy recipe round up will keep your diet on track so that you can get the most out of your training! @Suzlyfe

But how to choose my favorite easy healthy recipes? SO MANY FOODS.

Favorite Easy Healthy Recipe to Refuel after a Long Run or Tough Workout

Delicious Peach Basil Protein Crepe or Pancake Recipe with Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes Mix from Suzlyfe

I created these Peach Basil Protein Crepes during Alex’s and my spring vacation to the Outer Banks. I love fresh basil in anything; I’m from Georgia so you know how I feel about peaches, and a Greek Yogurt filling inside the protein-packed crepe balances out the sweetness and herbs in a perfectly refreshing way.

Favorite Easy Healthy Recipe for Faux-Meat Gluten Free Vegan Recipe

Love chorizo but either can't handle the real thing or can't have it because it isn't gluten free or vegan? Try this copycat version of Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo and enjoy! Recipe at

I can’t believe it took me so long to post my recipe for my Copycat Trader Joe’s Vegan Chorizo (Soyrizo). But I quickly realized that I hadn’t given it proper mention when I posted my Vegan Chorizo Pumpkin Quesadillas as part of Pumpkin Week and so many people asked after the recipe! What I love about making my own Vegan Chorizo is that I can make exactly as much as I want and exactly to my tastes and recipes.

Favorite Easy Healthy Strange But Good Recipe

Combine pumpkin and red wine to create this genius gluten free vegan wine pumpkin hummus party dip that will get the (adult) party started! Get the Recipe at


This one was actually really hard for me to pick! You know I’m a one for fun flavors, textures, and combinations. But this Wine Pumpkin Hummus is not only gluten free and vegan, but it is truly exceptional. with regards to flavor. Having a Christmas or New Year’s Party? What better way to ring in the New Year (For adults only, though!)?

Favorite Easy Healthy Burger Recipe

You won't miss the meat in with these gluten free ranch beet burgers with avocado yogurt sauce! Get the healthy recipe at @suzlyfe

I love this recipe for Gluten Free Ranch Beet Burgers with avocado yogurt sauce. Perfectly meaty and satisfying, you won’t miss the meat. They are the perfect healthy burger recipe for the winter, and you can even make them without a food processor by picking up shredded beets at a grocery store salad bar.
