I have a confession to make: I am a hungry girl. I always have been from childhood (I was the friend that kept asking you when dinner was) and I always will be (I’m currently counting down the minutes until lunch!). I’m that girl that is literally always down to eat.
I do make an effort to eat the right foods for my body so although I love eating, I think it’s important to be conscious of what you’re putting into your body. Thankfully, there are plenty of options for us health conscious hungry girls who just want a satisfying meal. Here are 10 colorful, nutrient-packed recipes that will satisfy your hungry girl cravings.
