Check out some of the easy and healthy recipes I love. This whole roundup is making me hungry.
12 Easy Healthy Recipes That Will Make Your Mouth Water
Baked Chicken Fajitas
I love Mexican night, but I don’t always have time to babysit what I’m cooking. These simple oven-baked Chicken Fajitas are right up my ally for weeknights. Is anyone else a fan of the one pan dinner?
Skinny Chicken Parmesan
When I have the taste for Italian food, nothing else will do. My go to lately has been Skinny Chicken Parmesan. This recipe is super easy to make, and it gives me all the coziness of chicken parm without the extra calories that come with the fried version. In fact, this recipe is probably going to be dinner tonight.
So when you watch this video, it has a lot of ingredients. The great thing about salads though is you can easily omit ingredients and still have a fantastic dinner. I like how many options and ideas this video gives me for adding to my Greek salad, and the dressing is delicious! Don’t be afraid to leave an ingredient out of the dressing also need be. The must haves are lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Anything else can totally be adjusted!
Honey Chipotle Chicken
This weeknight meal rocks, and has a different flavor combo than my average chicken night dinner. I love how easily this Honey Chipotle Chicken dinner works from the dead of winter into spring depending on the veggies you throw with it. The chicken is also spot on over top of salad greens!
Warm Steak Salad With Tomato Vinaigrette
We don’t eat tons of beef in our house, but when we do I like to do it right! This Warm Steak Salad is simple to make, but feels a bit fancier doesn’t it? Perfect for when my family visits, my mom loves steak.
Black Bean Soup
This beautifully creamy Black Bean Soup gets its texture from the beans themselves! While the recipe explains how to make this soup using dried beans, you can make it even faster using low sodium canned beans for a quick weeknight meal. If you rinse your beans before adding them to the soup it also helps to reduce sodium.
