One of my favourite sites for recipes and inspiration is www.budgetbytes.com/

Not all of the recipes are "healthy", but there are options that can fit in to any chosen way of eating.

While I don't follow either low carb or vegan / vegetarian, I do enjoy a lot of recipes from both www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/recipes and ohsheglows.com/categories/recipes-2/

For the most part, though, I do simple meal combinations that don't really require a "recipe". I tend to bulk cook a big mix of different veggies (roasted, steamed, and sauteed) and a couple of different meats (beef, pork, chicken, fish) and then mix and match for a few days. I might chop a mix of carrots, parsnips, beets, celeriac, rutabaga, kohlrabi, radishes, brussels sprouts, or squash (3 or 4 of them - not all) - toss them with a Tbsp of olive oil and some salt and then roast them all together. I might also steam some sugar snap peas and asparagus, and saute a pan full of onions and mushrooms with zucchini and garlic. With the roasting veggies, I'll have a small beef roast and some chicken thighs, cooking surrounded by cubed potatoes and sweet potatoes. There are a lot of similar ideas that you can find by searching for "sheet pan dinners".

Hopefully these give you a place to start looking for inspiration!

Sir Terry Pratchett: "Science is not about building a body of known 'facts'. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality-check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good."

"The Inuit Paradox" ( discovermagazine.com/2004/oct/inuit-
): "...there are no essential foods—only essential nutrients. And humans can get those nutrients from diverse and eye-opening sources. "

you can google 'five ingredient recipes' and then adjust for sugar if necessary.

Easy things I like to make are veggie + protein + grain bowls with some sort of a sauce.

think: rice noodles + broccoli + bell pepper + mushrooms + tofu + sesame oil, garlic, soy sauce OR sriracha mayo
rice + black beans + chicken + onions + bell pepper +salsa + avocado

The nice thing about these bowls is that you can roast off a bunch of veggies (and protein) simply seasoned and then just change it up with the sauce and combinations you do!

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!
