Hi!

I was wondering if you had a recipe for healthy muffins? I would love if you shared one. My husband’s favourite is Banana Chocolate Chip, do you have a recipe for this kind? Thanks! -Amanda

Anjali @ The Picky Eater October 7, 2012 at 11:00 pm

Hi Amanda! I do — this is my favorite Healthy Muffin Recipe, and this is a recipe for Healthy Banana Bread which – if you added a few chocolate chips to it and put it in muffin tins – would probably be perfect for your husband! Let me know if you end up trying these recipes and how they turn out for you! :)

Hey, Anjali!
I’m a college student who is also a runner and its very important for me to eat healthy food that also tastes great and gives me energy and I have to say, that I’m loving your recipes. I can’t wait to try the Indian spiced spaghetti squash recipe. Thank you so much!!

My question is.. We are on a budget and watch Biggest Loser every week! My Husband and I both really need to loose weight and want to start getting food in the house that is healthy. I have looked online to find a grocery list of the things we really need to get( I would like to get your cookbooks when I can) the only ones I have seen are pages long . What would your grocery list be of things we would need to get started and also as we progress with more recipies? I noticed for instance a lot of recipies call for Greek Yogurt. I need a detailed list. Thankyou for any help you can give me!!!

Anjali @ The Picky Eater March 15, 2013 at 11:38 am

Hi Mary! Congrats to you and your husband for making the effort to eat healthy! That is the first step :) For a detailed groceries list that you can download, along with 21 healthy meals (that go with the groceries list) – this post is for you: http://pickyeaterblog.com/one-week-of-healthy-meals-on-a-100-budget-and-a-whole-foods-giveaway/

If you’d like, I can also work with you to customize a healthy eating meal plan and groceries list that is personalized for you and your husband’s taste, preferences and food choices. Let me know if you’re interested and I can send you more information via email! Good luck and keep me posted on how things go!

I stumbled onto your blog while searching for healthy eating for picky eaters, and I must say that you have some very creative ideas! I am dissappointed that it’s entirely vegetarian, however. I’m afraid it may be difficult for me to find sites with healthy recipes which include meat because of the misconceptions many people have of meat or the cultural differences. I will be trying some of your recipes, and I especially look forward to experimenting with some of the spices I am unfamiliar with. The Indian spiced oatmeal has me very intrigued! Keep up the good work!

Reply

Anjali @ The Picky Eater March 18, 2013 at 5:54 pm

Hi Brittany! Thank you so much for reaching out! So you are right, all of my recipes are vegetarian, however – you can absolutely add meat into almost any recipe and it would work well! E.g. in my Mexican recipes you could sub fish in the tacos or chicken and it would taste great :) I’m not against eating meat by any means, it can absolutely be a healthy alternative (especially lean meats and fish!), I personally just made a choice not to cook it at home. I hope that helps, and you’ll have to let me know how you like the Indian Spiced Oatmeal and any other recipes you try! Happy cooking!

Hi Anjali..I had googled for the ‘healthy food blogs’ and ended up here and happy to see your Indian name.But I feel a bit disappointment when I go through the recipes. Your recipes are indeed healthy but I can’t find lot many Indian(my tastebuds are more inclined to Indian food). I really love your articles and philosophy. You have got a wonderful blog.

Anjali @ The Picky Eater April 19, 2013 at 4:13 pm

Hi Anu! I’m so glad you like my recipe philosophy and my blog! You are right, my blog isn’t geared towards only Indian recipes. My parents are from India but I love all kinds of cuisine :) However, I do have 24 Indian recipes on my site, which you can find here: http://pickyeaterblog.com/recipes-and-health-archive/#indian – Hope that helps!

I want to try the loaded sweet potato, it looks yummy. I am trying to find dishes my 2 year old grandson would eat. He loves fruit and my pickled beets. I canned some for him because I know what is in it. I like to make my own things because I know what I put in it. Thank you for your site I added it to my favorites.

Melanie November 8, 2013 at 2:18 pm

Hi Anjali,

I was wondering if you ever have korma or vindaloo. My favourite restaurant takeout dish is lamb korma and my step-dad’s is pork vindaloo. I would love to be able to make these two dishes (mostly the korma ;) ) at home so they could be healthier and still delicious.

If you don’t, do you know somewhere I could find a healthier version?

Thanks a bunch!!

Reply

Anjali @ The Picky Eater November 8, 2013 at 11:52 pm

Hi Melanie! Thanks for reaching out! I’ve never actually made either recipe before so unfortunately I don’t have a great healthy recipe that you can use :/ I also don’t cook meat so I can’t help you there! But this recipe from Health.com for Chicken Vindaloo looks pretty good, as does this one for Chicken Korma. Hope that helps! Good luck!

Shari December 24, 2013 at 6:01 am

Hi Anjali, like so many others I’ve stumbled upon your amazing blog and already have plans to direct my clients to you. I don’t have a blog yet, as I’m slowly re-inventing my energies as to how best I can help others toward better health. I’ve been a certified personal trainer, for years with a degree in exercise physiology, and recently certified as a Health Coach as well. My emphasis is helping those who want to help themselves; either with the goal to NOT have to take medications or for those who’ve decided its time to change their lifestyle to reduce or totally discontinue medications with the intention to reverse disease. I can go on and on, but I’m sure you get the idea.
Thank you SO much for all the fantastic work you’re doing! This is an amazing feat at such a young age! I will continue to look to your blogs/newsletters and fabulous recipes for inspiration to help me help my clients. All the best to you (pregnancy, too!) and your guinea pig husband in 2014!

Hi Shari!! Thank you so much for your comment and for sharing a bit about yourself! I loved the way you talked about how you like to help your clients — that philosophy totally resonates with me. I can’t wait to hear how you and your clients like my recipes – I hope they help put them on a path to better health! Thanks for all the well wishes too — can’t believe there are only 4 weeks to go until baby arrives!

Laurie February 15, 2014 at 7:59 am

Hello,
I started last February to make healthier eating choices and had lost 30 lbs right before the holidays but unfortunately when I was at the dr. recently I had gained about 10 of those pound back! :(
Dang cookies, candy, etc.!!
It is a struggle for me to eat healthy because I don’t like most vegetables, I don’t like any seafood and I’m not really a big meat eater. My weakness is breads and sweets (the worsts thing possible).
I’m excited that my husband is now jumping on board trying to eat healthy as well to lose some weight so that will limit alot of the temptations that usually laying around the house! I like your blog because it doesn’t have all the typical recipes you find on other diet websites. Thank you, and if you could include me in any new recipes that would be great! :)

Anjali @ The Picky Eater February 18, 2014 at 3:06 pm

Hi Laurie! Thank you so much for reaching out and for your kind words about my blog! Kudos to you and your husband for starting to eat healthier — and 30 lbs (even if you gained 10 back) is still an amazing accomplishment!! I totally understand your struggle to eat less of the “junkier” foods like cookies, candy, sweets, etc. Just remember to not be too hard on yourself if you “slip up” once in a while — the important thing is that you are eating healthy and well 90% of the time! I just added you to my email updates, so be sure to accept the confirmation from Feedburner when you get it! Good luck and keep me posted on how things go!!

I made your healthy baked penne with roasted veggies last night for my son and me, and we LOVED it! It was an easy weeknight meal to make, and so delicious. I can’t wait to try other recipes on your site!

Thank you!

I am a food-science student (human nutrition & dietetics concentration) currently and am going to become a registered dietician when I graduate. I am hoping to do something along the lines of culinary nutrition and am considering culinary school. So basically, I am drawn to any blog related to delicious healthy food!!
I love love love how your blog gives recipes from all around the world, and healthy versions of them too!
My family has ALWAYS cooked recipes from different countries and I am slowly starting to create more nutritious versions of them.
Your posts are great and your blog is full of fantastic ideas! I hope to make some of your recipes soon. I’ll let you know how they turn out!

Hi! Please add me to your mailing list. Can you also tell me which Indian dishes are low carb, low fat, low calorie?

Anjali @ The Picky Eater July 6, 2014 at 2:47 pm

Hi Deepthy! I have added you to my mailing list — but you have to click on the confirmation email from Feedburner for the subscription to be complete! For Indian dishes, pretty much every Indian dish I make is low in fat and calories, and the majority are very low in carbs as well. I include nutritional information for all of my recipes, so you can just go through the Indian recipes here and scroll to the bottom where the nutritional information is for each recipe, and choose the ones that fit the constraints you’re looking for. Hope that helps!
