Healthy Every Week Challenge: Cook More at Home Round-Up

We’re teaming up with fellow food bloggers and healthy eating advocates to host a Healthy Every Week Challenge, a month-long initiative to develop healthy eating habits. The plan is to develop a manageable healthy habit each week that will carry through the new year. Join us here and share what you’re eating on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #gethealthy.

The theme of the third week of our healthy challenge was to cook more at home. Cooking more means something different to everyone — some of us eat out once each day, some once a week, some of us buy lunch but prepare dinners at home and some of us buy breakfast on-the-go but pack lunch each day. Regardless of your personal dining away from home practices, increasing the number of meals you prepare yourself will save you money and you’ll save on calories, too. Plus, if you’re feeding a family, preparing a meal together makes for fun family time.

It was great to see variation in the recipes our challenge participants made this week — some shared dinner recipes, we saw quite a few homemade breakfast ideas, a selection of easy-to-make lunches, and of course, some sweet treats too, like the Carrot-Walnut Muffins pictured above from Cookin’ in my Kitchen. What did you make last week? Did your good habits carry over to this week? Check out our challenge participants’ recipes from week 3 after the jump.
