Where can I find some good healthy recipes?

I love to cook, but nothing super complicated or time consuming. It is just me at home for the next couple of weeks since my husband is out of town. Do you have any ideas for recipes for one person that are healthy and not high fat but very tasty?

    It doesn’t get any easier than crock pot cooking! (And if you don’t have a crock pot, you can make this recipe on the stove top, you just adjust the time. You could probably make this recipe in 30 minutes stove top.)

    Here’s an example of a tasty, healthy recipe:

    Sweet & Sour Meatballs Over Rice
    12 ready-to-eat meatballs (may use turkey meatballs)
    3 tablespoons vinegar
    3 tablespoons corn starch
    1-15 oz can pineapple chunks
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 green pepper, sliced

    Stir together the vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, cornstarch and green pepper. Pour over meatballs.

    Cover and cook on Low 3 hours. In the last 30 minutes of cooking, stir in the pineapple.
    Serve over hot cooked rice.

    Tasty healthy, and easy! That’s what you asked for!

    Here are a few from foodtv.com, Ellie Krieger’s kitchen. Although these recipes are for multiple servings, you could easily half them, and then you could freeze the other half for some other time.

    Chicken Piccata – 4 servings
    Ingredients

    * 6 ounces whole-wheat angel hair pasta
    * 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, divided
    * 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
    * 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    * 4 chicken cutlets (3/4-1 pound total), trimmed
    * 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    * 1 10-ounce package mushrooms, sliced
    * 3 large cloves garlic, minced
    * 1/2 cup white wine
    * 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    * 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
    * 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed
    * 2 teaspoons butter

    Directions

    Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until just tender, 4 to 6 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and rinse.

    Meanwhile, whisk 5 teaspoons flour and broth in a small bowl until smooth. Place the remaining flour in a shallow dish. Season chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper and dredge both sides in the flour. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned and no longer pink in the middle, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; keep warm.

    Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, until they release their juices and begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add garlic and wine to the pan and cook until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the reserved broth-flour mixture, lemon juice and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.

    Stir in parsley, capers, butter and the reserved mushrooms. Measure out 1/2 cup of the mushroom sauce. Toss the pasta in the pan with the remaining sauce. Serve the pasta topped with the chicken and the reserved sauce.

    No Bake Mac and Cheese — 4 servings
    Ingredients

    * 8 ounces whole-wheat elbow noodles (2 cups)
    * 1 10-ounce package frozen chopped broccoli
    * 1 3/4 cups low-fat milk, divided
    * 3 tablespoons flour
    * 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
    * 3/4 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
    * 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
    * 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

    Directions

    Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta for 4 minutes. Add frozen broccoli and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the pasta and broccoli are just tender, 4 to 5 minutes more.

    Meanwhile, heat 1 1/2 cups milk in another large pot over medium-high heat until just simmering. Whisk the remaining 1/4 cup milk, flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl until combined. Add the flour mixture to the simmering milk; return to a simmer and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture is thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in Cheddar, Parmesan and mustard until the cheese is melted.

    Drain the pasta and broccoli and add to the cheese sauce. Return to the heat and cook, stirring, over medium-low heat, until heated through, about 1 minute.

    Huevos Rancheros – 2 servings
    Ingredients

    * 2 small tomatoes
    * 1 small onion
    * 1 medium jalapeno pepper, chopped
    * 2 cloves garlic; 1 chopped, 1 smashed
    * 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
    * 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    * Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    * 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    * 1 15.5-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
    * 4 large eggs
    * 4 6-inch corn tortillas, warmed
    * 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
    * 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

    Directions

    Prepare the salsa: Set a grater in a large bowl; grate the tomatoes and onion into the bowl. Add the jalapeno, chopped garlic, hot sauce, cumin and salt and pepper to taste. Heat a medium skillet over low heat and add 2 teaspoons olive oil. Fry the salsa in the oil until it thickens slightly, 3 minutes. Remove to a bowl and set aside.

    Add the beans to the same pan along with the smashed garlic, 1/2 cup warm water and a pinch of salt; cook over low heat until warmed through, smashing slightly with a fork.

    Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in another skillet. Fry the eggs sunny-side up; season with pepper.

    Place 1 warm tortilla on each plate. Divide the beans among them, then top with a fried egg, some salsa and cheese. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with the remaining salsa.
