5 Healthy Meals with 5 Ingredients #GimmeFive

Hi Everyone,

Today I decided to be apart of the Michelle Obama #GimmeFive Campaign.  The First Lady is celebrating 5 years of the Let’s Move campaign. The Let’s Move campaign is about getting kids to exercise and eat healthier.  This week The First Lady asked people to share 5 ways to get healthier.  She encourage you to try 5 new vegetables or add 5 new healthy habits into your daily routine.

I was watching The Rachael Ray Show today and Michelle Obama asked her to share 5 meals with 5 healthy ingredients. I thought what a great idea.  I am no Rachael Ray but I can surly share with you 5 recipes with 5 ingredients that is healthy.  I searched through all of my recipes on my blog and I have to tell you, finding 5 ingredients recipes is hard. I didn’t include salt, pepper or olive oil  Rachael didn’t, so either am I.

I think this is a wonderful campaign and I am all about making America healthier, especially the children.  What are your 5 ways of getting healthier?  You can Tweet, Facebook, Instagram your ideas.  Just be sure to use the hashtag #GimmeFive. 

Here are my 5 Healthy recipes with 5 Ingredients

  3. Hello Jennifer,
    I was just reading your blog and found so many interesting recipes that looks great. I have a book in Amazon which is a cookbook with healthy diet conscious recipes you can make in advance and then heat up for lunch or dinner. If you are interested in I can send a copy of the book. Further I would love to talk to you about an offer that would allow you to give something free to your community of users.

    You can reach me at [email protected] or just go to either of the book sites: http://www.carbcycle.net and http://www.fitrecipe.net.

    Thank you
    Jesse Morgan
