Healthy Spring Meals

By Cindy Adams

We are moving into Spring and time to get healthy so Heartland Living is bringing you some nutritious recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For breakfast, you can enjoy a wholesome Green Detox Smoothie, or if you want a more hearty meal, try the Baked Eggs with Mushroom and Spinach. Keep lunch light with a delicious Apple Cranberry Pecan Salad or a low carb Cauliflower Chowder. If you are a shrimp scampi lover, for dinner try this healthier recipe, Shrimp Scampi Spaghetti Squash. And for a light spring drink, try the Apple Sangria anytime in the afternoon or evening.

1 cup almond milk
