March is National Nutrition Month

The Motherhood team has bonded over many similar interests and shared loves, but we’d all quickly point to food as one of our most popular water cooler topics! Whether it’s exchanging recipes, testing out new ones and sharing with each other, or just talking about our new favorite food blogs and ingredients, this team loves a good meal!

To celebrate National Nutrition Month in March, we decided to host a recipe exchange among our team and also share those recipes with all of you! Check out the drinks, easy weeknight meals and snacks that we’ve been enjoying this month.

The Motherhood Team’s Favorite Recipes this Spring 

As we head into spring, one of Brittney’s go-to breakfast options is Kristy’s Berry Spinach Smoothie from Mommy Hates Cooking. Brittney said, “I love a quick breakfast that’s filling, but not too heavy. We don’t always have time for a sitdown breakfast, so I love an easy, grab-and-go option for me and the rest of my family!”

From breakfast to lunch, Kayla has been loving the ease of Angie of Eclectic Recipes’ Black Bean Mango Quinoa Salad for lunch. “I’ve been in search of easy, quick and healthy options and this recipe meets all of those for me! So simple, and it tastes so fresh.”

Looking for lunch options outside of the standard chicken salad, one of Brittnee’s latest favorites, Raspberry and Scallop Salad, is also from Angie of Eclectic Recipes. “I love a great salad, but sometimes I want something different and a bit lighter. I love scallops, so when I found this recipe I knew I would love it!” Brittnee said.

Switching gears from lunch to dinner, Erin recently shared her love for stir fry with the team, passing along her go-to recipe for Healthy Beef Stir Fry in 20 Minutes from Allison at Some the Wiser. “I love a good homemade meal, but I don’t love spending a ton of time in the kitchen on a weeknight. Twenty minutes is totally doable, and any type of stir fry is always a hit at my house!”

Finally, a recipe round-up – even one that’s health-inspired – wouldn’t be complete without a few snack recipes. Both Nicole and Kahlianne are gluten-free, so they’re always looking for options that suit their dietary needs without sacrificing great flavor.

Nicole also seeks out dairy-free options, and since finding Kristy’s recipe for Black Bean Hummus on Mommy Hates Cooking, she has been hooked. “I love smaller meals and snacks throughout the day, and black bean hummus is a great one for that mid-afternoon snack that we all crave. It works for my dietary needs and it’s so delicious!” said Nicole.

Kahlianne has also found a gluten-free option that’s perfect for snacking — Allison’s Healthy 7-Layer Greek Dip, found on Some the Wiser. “This is a great snack and even a nice option as an appetizer for get-togethers. Although, I think it works well for a healthy lunch, too!” she told us.
