Healthy Winter Recipes – From Cigna
These are a perfect way to start your day with protein. Runners need protein after a run and these are great for busy mornings when you need to take something on the go!
Eating healthy is all about being prepared to resist temptation, right? Using a crockpot makes this recipe awesome. I love that I can prepare the chili before a long day and come home to a warm meal at night.
I always need a quick source of energy in the afternoons. These are perfect to keep in the fridge as an afternoon treat. I love that they include my favorite seasonal flavors too.
Did you know that Quinoa is a fantastic source of protein? The ancient grain is a popular “superfood” that picks up the flavors from spices and broth.
