6 Healthy Air-Fryer Recipes

In our increasingly busy lives, the air fryer has been a revelation. Using an air fryer not only cuts down the cooking and cleanup time, but it’s generally a healthier alternative than using oil. It doesn’t have the fat of the oil and lowers the calorie content by around 70 to 80%.

The meals, however, are only as healthy as the foods you put inside the air fryer.

Center’s Healthcare is here to help with six recipes for your air fryer that are not only quick and delicious, but healthy too.

  1. Fish and Chips

Enjoy some crispy fish with healthier sweet potato fries. The key with the fish is to use either almond flour, whole-grain flour, or whole-grain bread crumbs. Keeping bleached white flour out of the mix cuts down on empty calories and carbs.

  1. Roasted Chickpeas

Chickpeas pack a powerful protein punch, and after tossing them in the air fryer, they provide a satisfying crunch as well!

  1. Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasted Brussels sprouts are a delicious treat in the oven, but you need oil to crisp them up, and putting too much on them can make them too soggy. Don’t worry about that with the air fryer, as they come out nice and crispy every time.

  1. Green Beans

Whether they’re plain or seasoned in salt, green beans in the air fryer have a surprising crunch that will have you thinking a whole new way about this vegetable side.

  1. Chicken Wings

Season your wings with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning and let them crisp up in the air fryer to enjoy this typically fatty comfort food without the guilt.

  1. Sweet Potato Fries

We mentioned these above with the fish and chips, but if you peel a large sweet potato yourself, you can have enough fries for two people, and sweet potatoes are high in magnesium, potassium, and vitamin D while not wreaking havoc on your blood sugar like typical fries.
