I am Neli – the recipe developer, photographer, and author at Delicious Meets Healthy. I share wholesome, seasonal and flavorful recipes. I hope to inspire you and help you prepare light, fresh and delicious meals your whole family will love.

Meet Neli

Welcome to my kitchen! I am Neli Howard and the food blogger behind Delicious Meets Healthy. I started Delicious Meets Healthy in 2014 while working in public accounting. While everything I did at work was very analytical and detail-oriented, I have enjoyed cooking because I get to use my creativity and experiment with flavors and textures of different foods. The inspiration behind this blog is my desire to live a healthy lifestyle by eating real food and cooking with nutrient-rich ingredients.

The Blog

Delicious Meets Healthy is a healthy food blog for people who love to eat whole foods but are time conscious and want their food to taste delicious. Eating nutritious food that tastes amazing should not be time-consuming, you just need to cook clever, shop smart and get creative.
I love to share seasonal and nutritious recipes that are also easy, quick and full of flavor. Each recipe is tried and family-tested and approved. Inspired by cookbooks, cooking shows, magazines, and old family recipes, I try to create nutritious and flavorful family-friendly recipes and I hope to inspire you and help you prepare light, fresh and tasty meals your whole family will love.
