It’s back! My most popular blog series – this time, I’ve compiled 28 healthy air fryer recipes that are quick, easy, and delicious. If you do not have an air fryer, check out my Crockpot Recipes, One Skillet Recipes, 30 Minute Meals, and Smoothie Recipes for the Busy Athlete series. 

Air Fryers are essentially miniature ovens. They require very little oil, and they use hot air to cook your food. You can use an air fryer to make anything you would otherwise bake or roast in the oven and can even use it to reheat leftovers. In this blog, we have healthy and delicious recipes for everyone, no matter your dietary restrictions.
