38 More Healthy Dinner Recipes

By  | 

One night in the week, I was cooking my normal, clean chicken meal when I realized that I make the same meals over and over the day I need it. So I told myself I would look at more healthy dinner recipes on Pinterest to have different types of nutrients from other proteins and meal prep for the week so I’m better prepared. I’ve made all the easy, fast healthy dinner recipes from my last article for one and sometimes for two with my boyfriend. But I am ready for simple clean eating with new meats, and sometimes no meat, vegetarian for when I’m feeling healthy vegetarian dinner ideas.

 

I think this list is more diverse in many ways. First, ethically since I could include more Mexican options like this Quinoa salad recipe. Also when considering health, this list is slightly more varied because I have vegan and vegetarian options (some more here if you like avocados), Paleo diet meals, and even gluten free because kids in my recently had a major allergic reaction to pasta their mom made for four. There’s even dinner for weight loss, like my cheap fish and shrimp casserole, and for picky eaters, like grill and bake turkey. You can do this all on a budget so you don’t need a crockpot or slow cooker for your new weightloss diet. I even have cheap tricks to staying healthy with low carb meals under 500 calories, not just during summer.

1. Healthy Beef and Broccoli for Weight Loss

Broccoli with beef is such a great combination of protein and vegetable health. It’s good for kids because they like the tasty meat but will also eat it with the veggies to stay healthy. You won’t need a slow cooker!

2. Chicken Grill – Not Only for Summer

The burrito bowl is one of my Mexican recipes, although it could be more authentic if you maybe made it not an actual burrito or taco, but that wouldn’t be gluten free now, would it? You can add quinoa for extra health benefits since it’s almost like a vegetable.
