Eating healthy is an important part of living our best life but when dinner (or snack) time rolls around I seem to go toward the unhealthy options for taste reasons. When great taste meets healthy options, I am all over that! I love getting the nutrients from vegetables in uncommon ways and disguising them in sweet treats and yummy snacks. Today I have rounded up lots of healthy recipes teens actually like. I bet you haven’t seen a lot of these unique ideas yet, so check them out and get cooking!

Healthy Banana Pancakes
Breakfast is not the place that you wanna be eating most of your carbs. Save them for later in the day! Heavy pancakes can stick with you and make you feel pretty yucky during the day, but these healthy banana pancakes are a great alternative that is still tasty!

Salted Chocolate Dipped Mandarin Slices
Don’t these look like the fanciest thing you have ever seen? They totally look like something that would come in like a fancy Christmas gift basket. Definitly a cool way to make eating fruit more appealing.
20 Minute Healthy Chicken Burritos
These are perfect for those nights where you have a thousand and one things to do and legit barely have time to make dinner. I bet you could actually make these ahead of time and freeze them! That would make it even quicker- like grab and go!
The best tasting no carb option to pizza! I am a carb girl, but this even looks good to me! Gotta get those veggies in where ever you can!
