Connect Live Chat Recap: The Healthy Pantry

The Chefs and Trainers from The Healthy Pantry joined us for a Connect Live Chat and shared ideas and chatted about healthy living, cooking tips, tricks and substitutions along with our personal favorite – the recipe makeovers.

If you think “healthy” equals boring and bland, get ready to have your world rocked by The Healthy Pantry recipe makeover. We picked 3 reader-submitted recipes and the Chefs at the Healthy pantry made them healthier, easier, and tastier.

· Mac & Cheese

· Chicken Enchiladas

· Apple Dumplings
