38 Quick and Easy Healthy Dinner Recipes
If you are like most people these days, you work all day, then you hit the gym, then you come home and make dinner and watch maybe an episode (or three) of Netflix, while scrolling through Pinterest and Facebook, then go to bed. Well, if you are trying to eat a healthy dinner, that poses a bit of a problem. I have tried Blue Apron, Fit and Ready, and a ton of other pre-cooked or pre-selected meals. For some reason, they haven’t really been able to provide me with a quick and easy healthy dinner option that I love and can come back to again and again. I just want a healthy meal that I can make in like 30 minutes. The only thing that I have found works is coming up with a list of healthy dinner recipes on Sunday, and scheduling them out for the week. After that, I get an ingredient list together and hit the grocery store.
A few years ago I decided to start taking my wellbeing more seriously. I used to be obsessed with just staying skinny and looking fit. But over the years, I’ve also become interested in maintaining my overall health, keeping my energy levels up, and feeling good about what I am putting in my body. Instead of just telling you about my routine, I have gone ahead and found a huge list of quick and easy healthy dinner recipes that you can schedule for this coming week, go pick up the ingredients and get started on. The requirements that I went with are that these recipes have to require no more than 30 or 45 minutes. I’m not cooking for an hour for one meal. They all had to be healthy enough to allow me to continue to lose weight and support me in my fat loss journey. Some of these are more paleo and protein heavy, and some of them are leaner vegetarian dinner options. Please pick five dinner recipes for this coming week and stick to them and tell me how it goes!
