Healthy Father's Day Recipe Round Up


It is time to celebrate a very important man, Dad.  You are never too old to need your Dad.  So with these healthy recipes you can celebrate and keep Dad healthy.  Dad, here’s to a long, healthy, happy life.

Start the day off right:


SweetpotatoBLTfrittata8Lexi’s Clean Kitchen – Sweet Potato BLT Frittata

This is a hearty, healthy way to start the day.  The bacon provides a little luxury along with the healthy vegetables like spinach and sweet potatoes.  It’s the best of both worlds.


 Dizzy, Busy and Hungry – Graham Cracker Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup

I can just imagine the kids wanting to make these for Dad.  They are delicious enough for adults and fun enough for kids.  Treat Dad to breakfast in bed.

Let the celebration begin with these dishes perfect for an appetizer:

Lemon-Pepper-Grilled-Squid-2Lemon Pepper Grilled Calamari

Grab some toothpicks or a fork and dig into these deliciously healthy gems.  You won’t miss the breading or want them fried after trying calamari grilled.

crispy-asian-chicken-drumsticksThe Wicked Noodle – Crispy Asian Drumsticks

Forget the wings, try these baked drumsticks.  They are crispy, sweet, spicy and all around delicious.  Grab a drumstick before they are gone.

Ring the bell.  It’s dinner time.

Fennel-and-Radish-Salad-with-Cherry-Vinaigrette-16The Messy Baker – Fennel, Radish Salad with Cherry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Now this is a gorgeous salad filled with healthy vegetables and fruit with a little bit of blue cheese for good measure.  Who wouldn’t enjoy this feast for the eyes and stomach.

wild-rice-salad2A Family Feast – Wild Rice

Get wild with wild rice.  It’s the perfect change-up from white or brown rice.  It’s filled with nutritious ingredients and has the flavor to knock your socks off. my Smoke – Grilled Smashed Potatoes

Fire up the grill and throw these potatoes on.  As far as my hubby is concerned, potatoes make the world go round. (and bread, rice, any carb he can get his hands on)

Garlic-and-Herb-Lamb-ChopsHealthy Delicious – Garlic and Herb Lamb Chops

Lamb chops are so deceptively easy to make.  Even my little one loves them.  They come with their own stick (bone), what is not to love.

The grand finale, dessert:

nutella-raspberry-slice02Tales of a Kitchen – Homemade Nutella Raspberry Slices

Oh yes she did!  She made her own nutella then used it to make this incredible dessert.  Oh you know it is going to be good.

These bars have fun written all over them.  They would be the perfect way to end a cookout with Dad.
