I used to think charcuterie boards were too pretty and complicated for real life! OMG, was I wrong! They’re actually super easy and perfect to feed you and your family (even those picky eaters, trust me I have 3 in my house). They make a bunch of random things come together for an easy healthy brunch or when you’re cramped for time trying to figure out what to cook for a weeknight meal!
I’m sharing my 2 favorite easy peasy healthy charcuterie board ideas with you that are packed with foods that are anti-inflammatory and help you achieve glowing skin. Because we all know that your skin thrives when you’re feeding it well.
Seriously, it’s super easy, pull out a big tray or use a sheet pan for easy clean up or if you have a butcher block use that, options are endless. Chop up some antioxidant and vitamin A and C rich fruits and veggies, Vitamin D and omega 3 and 6 protein-rich eggs and meats, nuts, Vitamin E packed healthy fats and spreads (think avocados, hummus and olives), and whole grains and you have yourself a board. Viola!
One of my favorites is a brunch board! Because you can pour a cup of coffee, mimosa, or sip on a berry prosecco (recipe below) while you’re throwing it together AND munch on it ALL morning and afternoon long! Put it together 1 and eat twice, my kinda cooking. Maybe it’s not completely anti-inflammatory with the wine but everything in moderation right?
Here are some great picks to create a brunch board
Using whole grain frozen waffles or pancakes makes this come together SUPER quick.
Again this is supposed to be easy peasy, perfect for weeknight dinners when you’re pressed for time or even if you’re not. I was shocked the first time I threw this together. My super picky eaters, devoured it! I They didn’t even know it was “healthy” or they were really eating the rainbow. call that a winner winner, chicken dinner! You’ll even notice some recurring foods, so this is a great one for clearing out the fridge or using up leftovers!
All of the above can be made into a pita sandwich, big salad, or both! No more fighting for who eats what and when. This a pick what you want and graze board. Perfect for picky eaters!
Here’s how it comes together
Eating the rainbow can be really easy when you get creative. I actually enjoy putting these together too. And the best part is everyone is eating healthy without even realizing it.
So the next time you’re struggling with what to make for dinner, steal these 2 go-tos! Everyone will love it plus it's yummy, anti-inflammatory and perfect way to eat your way to healthy glowing skin.
