We all want to cook and eat healthier meals at home, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why Real Simple has teamed up with Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Campaign, the Partnership for a Healthier America, and USDA’s MyPlate to create a one-stop destination on Pinterest for delicious, healthy recipes that feature fresh ingredients and are low in calories, saturated fat, and sodium. Along with a top-notch group of media companies—including our friends at Cooking Light and—we’ll be pinning our healthiest, tastiest recipes to the MyPlate Pinterest page.

Whether you’re looking for a great chicken dinner, a delicious slow-cooker meal, or a quick and nutritious breakfast, you’ll be able to browse the MyPlate Pinterest boards to find a recipe that not only tastes good but follows the USDA’s guidelines for a healthy meal. To build a healthy plate, the USDA suggests making half your plate fruits and vegetables, making at least half your grains whole grains, varying your protein choices, and switching to skim or 1 percent milk. Use these recipes as your building blocks for healthful, varied meals you can feel good about eating and serving to your family.
