Many people post asking about healthy recipes and what kinds of foods are healthy, so I wanted to compile a list, and keep it simple. Here goes!
Cleaneatingmag.com Website for a magazine chock full of recipes that rock. Great recipes on the site, as well as meal plans.
Oxygenmag.com Sister magazine to Clean Eating, focuses on exercise, primarily weight training. Great resource!
Choosemyplate.gov USDA's website with fantastic info about how much of each food to eat, food labels, etc. Formerly known as the Food Pyramid.
http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/ Where to calculate your BMR. Your BMR is the minimum number of calories your body requires to function normally. Once you've calculated your BMR, use the Harris Benedict equation (see link on that page) to find your maintenance calories at your current weight and actvity level (don't use the 6 or 7 day/week equations unless you're training for an IronMan)
skinnytaste.com recipe website
sparkpeople.com Calorie tracking, articles
myfitnesspal.com Calorie tracking, support forum
livestrong.com Calorie tracking, etc.
sparkrecipes.com Sparkpeople's recipe site, many user-added, include nutrition info
