Welcome To Mom's Healthy Eats

Welcome to Mom's Healthy Eats. I'm Marcia, the mom, and I believe food that is good for you can still be delicious! Healthy eating is not simply the goal; it's a journey. It is learning how to find more nourishing versions of the foods you eat now without sacrificing great taste. If you want a cookie, make it nutritious!

My recipes are simple, quick, and easy; they require only the right ingredients and a little know-how. You can try something new for dinner or whip up a batch of cookies or apple crisp whenever a recipe hums to you.

The recipes here at Mom's Healthy Eats and in my dessert recipe eBooks, show you how to make your favorite recipes healthier AND delicious! And many are gluten free, too. So start browsing recipes and be sure to check out my product reviews, pantry guide, healthy ingredient list and other resources that will help you discover just how easy healthy eating can be!
