Guest Post: Favorite Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Dessert from StudioEats

My last guest post for this stretch is from Jamie at StudioEats, she blogs great recipes, and she offered to put together some of her favorite recipes! As always, show some love and maybe leave some of your favorite healthy recipes and follow her on twitter.

Hi everyone! My name is Jamie and I blog over at StudioEats. I am a Health Coach living in New York City and I blog about healthy and easy recipes, thoughts on living a balanced lifestyle, and how to have a lot of fun along the way. I am a huge believer that being healthy can be fun and easy. After gaining 25 pounds in college and subsequently losing it, I have gained a lot of strategies about losing weight and maintaining it in a really easy, stress-free, way.

When Kelly asked for guest blogs, I thought it would be a great opportunity to put together something I’ve been meaning to for a while. People always ask me what my favorite recipes on my blog are, and I always stumble on the answer. So, here I have put together my favorite breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert recipe that I have made so far on the blog. The best of the best, if you will!

Breakfast:

Toast with Yogurt and Grilled Peaches

This is very typical of something I like to make. It’s SUPER simple, yet also special for a weekday breakfast. Simply take toast, add some greek yogurt, and grill up some peaches or another type of your favorite fruit. Drizzle a little honey on top and you have yourself a decadent breakfast in minutes. Coffee on the side, of course!

Lunch:

A Not Boring Veggie Sandwich

Again, this is all about taking something really simply but making it a little more interesting. I’m not a vegetarian by any means, but I do like a good amount of meatless meals. This is taking a veggie sandwich and sprucing it up a bit by adding pumpkin, some oregano, a hefty dose of hummus, and making it on Cinnamon Raisin bread. SO much flavor!

Dinner:

Eggplant, Fig and Ricotta Pizza

I love me some pizza. I actually make pizza quite frequently. Pizza was one of the first things I made this year and put on the blog, and I guess I’ve never stopped loving it. It’s SO fun to make, and the possibilities are endless. I usually just buy some Whole Wheat pizza dough from the grocery store, roll it out, and add whatever toppings are on my mind. This pizza recipe was probably my favorite. Again, meatless, but you can add sausage or chicken or even steak to this. Yum!
Dessert:

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Don’t forget about dessert! I try to usually have some healthy dessert on hand, because I have a strong sweet tooth and I refuse to tame it. These healthy cookies are the best I’ve made. No sugar, butter, or oil. But chocolate is still included, obviously. Can’t skimp on that!

I hope you like these recipes and check out many more on my blog. Cheers to health made easy, baby!

What looks good to you? My favorite is the toast with yogurt and grilled peaches, yum!
