7 Ways to Get Easy, Healthy Recipes This Week
Eating healthily and cooking more home meals is tough when you don’t know what to make. Recipe sites are great when you know what you’re looking for, but what if you want to discover new things to try each week? I scoured the web to find the best resources for discovering new and healthy recipes; here are the best ones I found.

1. Weekly Meal Planner

    This one is the easiest on the list. When you sign up, you get recipes for every meal of the week emailed to you on your grocery day. It also lets you specify certain allergies/ingredients to avoid, caloric restrictions to keep your daily total under, any diet you might be on (paleo, vegetarian, etc.), and cuisines you dislike.

    2. Pinterest

      Pinterest is actually an awesome place to find new recipes. There are tons of great pinboards for recipes and you can always find new ones by checking out the main “food and drink” link above. Having your own pinboard of recipes you want to make is a great way to have an endless list of cooking ideas.

      3. Real Simple

        Real Simple is similar to Weekly Meal Planner where you get recipes delivered periodically, but this one is daily instead of weekly. It’s a little inconvenient if you want to put a bunch together to go grocery shopping, but it’s nice if you have a heavily stocked kitchen and want to make something at random each day. Each email also has ads.

        4. Allrecipes Daily Recipes

          Allrecipes picks a few recipes each day to feature, which is great if you want a few different options. You can save them to a recipe book or even to a Pinterest board and come back to them later in the week when you go get groceries. The only downside with this option is that you have to go to their site to get them; they don’t get emailed to you.

          5. Recipe Secrets

          Recipe Secrets is very similar to Real Simple. You get a new recipe delivered to your inbox every day, which you could then save to go shopping later in the week or use immediately if you have the ingredients. It’s a fun option if you want something new to consider every day or go shopping frequently.

          6. Simply Recipes

          simply recipes

            Simply Recipes is a little different because instead of getting the recipes at a regular interval like every day or week, you get an email when new recipes are added to their list. It’s great if you’re already a regular user of simply recipes and want to know when they’ve been updated, but not great if you want a regular stream of new recipes to try.

            7. Epicurious

              Finally, if you just want to surf around for new recipes manually, there are always sites like Epicurious to fall back on. They have a huge assortment of well-curated recipes to check out, and there will always be new ones to try out and discover.

              And there you have it! With any one of these (or combination of them) you’ll be set for finding great new healthy recipes each and every week.
