The 5 Most Creative Recipes for 2022

Hungry for some new creative recipes? We can help!

Looking back on 2021, you’re likely to recall an attempt to return to normalcy—one that seemed to hit an endless barrage of bumps in the road, all bent on throwing us back off track.

Despite all the upheaval and turmoil, though, we still found ways to live and love, so it wasn’t all bad. Still, it feels pretty good to put 2021 in the rearview, and at Wellory, we’ve got our sights firmly set on the year ahead.

And we’re determined to make it count.

That means staying focused on what we can control: our own health and wellness.

Which starts by making smarter choices when it comes to nutrition. And by smarter, we mean healthier. And by healthier, we still mean delicious.

But it’s often easier said than done.

Finding creative cooking ideas that check all the boxes can be an infuriating challenge at times:

✓ Simple ✓ Flavorful ✓ Nutritious

For many, this challenge can be overwhelming—exhausting, even. That’s why, with our brief list of the most mouthwatering, creative recipes for 2022, we’re hoping to make it all a little easier.

And we hope you brought your appetite.

It’s creamy, delicious, and only takes about 40 minutes to prep and cook. If you're looking for a healthier take on this classic Italian chicken dinner, this one's for you.

4. Salmon with Smoky Mayo & Quinoa Pilaf

We absolutely love our omega-3s. They’re an essential part of any diet, and they come with a wide range of benefits for both our minds and bodies. This meal will deliver the essential fatty acids you need–and then some. It’s also low in calories and high in protein.

5. Vegan chili stir-fry

Fifteen minutes. That’s the amount of time it’ll take to prepare this vegan dish. It's super-fast, low-cal, and gluten-free. Not to mention the fact that it’s packed with healthy veggies like broccolini and spinach, so it's also high in dietary fiber.
