The best healthy dinner is one that is high in nutrients and low in calories. It should be a balance of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats. A healthy dinner should also be devoid of processed foods and additives.
Pasta and Meatballs
The first thing to love about pasta and meatballs is the pasta itself. Pasta is made from wheat, which is a complex carbohydrate. Complex carbs are an important part of a healthy diet because they help to provide the body with energy. They also take longer to digest than simple carbs, so they help to keep you feeling full longer.
The next great thing about pasta and meatballs is the meatballs! Meatballs are usually made from ground beef, pork, or turkey. They’re a great source of protein, which is essential for building and repairing muscles. Protein is also necessary for maintaining a healthy weight. And let’s not forget that meatballs are simply delicious!
So what are you waiting for? Make yourself some pasta and meatballs tonight and enjoy a nutritious and tasty meal!
Air Fried Chicken Drumsticks
To make air fried chicken drumsticks, start by preheating your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, coat the chicken in a light layer of cooking spray. Next, season the chicken with your favorite spices. I like to use salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Then, place the chicken in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Cook for 15 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce or sides. Enjoy!
Egg salad stuffed tomatoes
Eggs are a nutritional powerhouse, containing high-quality protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. One large egg has about six grams of protein, making them an excellent source of this nutrient. Eggs are also rich in the essential fatty acid omega-3, which is important for brain health. Additionally, eggs contain vitamins A, D, E, and B12 as well as minerals such as iron and zinc.
Eggs make a great base for a salad because they are so versatile. You can add different herbs or spices to change up the flavor or mix in some chopped vegetables for added fiber and nutrients. This egg salad recipe uses mayonnaise and mustard for a creamy dressing that’s perfect for stuffing into tomatoes. You could also use this mixture to make an Egg Salad Sandwich by spreading it on bread instead of stuffing it into tomatoes.
If you’re looking for a healthy dinner option that’s quick and easy to make, give this egg salad stuffed tomatoes recipe a try!
Pizza with cauliflower crust
Cauliflower crust pizza has many benefits over regular pizza. For one, it is lower in calories and carbohydrates. It is also gluten-free, making it a great option for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Additionally, cauliflower crust pizza is packed with nutrients, including vitamins C and K, folate, fiber, and manganese.
To make cauliflower crust pizza, start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Next, place one head of cauliflower on to a cutting board and cut into small florets. Add the florets to a food processor and pulse until they are broken down into rice-sized pieces.
In a large bowl, combine the rice d cauliflower with one egg white, ¼ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, ½ teaspoon of garlic powder, and salt to taste. Mix everything together until well combined then press the mixture on to the prepared baking sheet in an even layer about ¼-inch thick. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown around the edges then remove from oven.
Sprouted Grain English Muffin with Smashed Avocado and Tomato
Sprouted grain English muffins are a great option for a healthy dinner. They are high in fiber and protein, and they have a subtle flavor that pairs well with other ingredients. Smashed avocado and tomato is a simple but delicious topping for sprouted grain English muffins. The avocado provides healthy fats and the tomato adds sweetness and acidity.
Salmon Salad on Crackers
Salmon is a delicious and nutritious fish that can be enjoyed in many different ways. One of our favorite ways to enjoy salmon is in a salad on crackers. This simple and healthy dish is perfect for a light lunch or dinner, and it’s easy to make ahead of time so you can always have it on hand.
To make our salmon salad on crackers, we start with high-quality canned salmon. We like to use wild-caught Alaskan salmon for its amazing flavor and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. If you can’t find canned wild-caught salmon, any good quality canned salmon will work fine.
Once you have your canned salmon, simply drain it and add it to a bowl with some chopped celery, diced onion, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix everything together well and then spread the salad on to crackers. We like to use whole wheat or rice crackers for added fiber and nutrition, but any type of cracker will work fine.
This salad is best enjoyed immediately after being made but leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 24 hours. If you want to meal prep this dish ahead of time, we recommend making the salad without the crackers and storing it in a container in the fridge until you’re ready to serve it. Then just add the crackers right before eating.
Avocado Egg Salad on Toast
To make avocado egg salad, start by mashing up two ripe avocados in a bowl. Then, add in six hard boiled eggs that have been chopped up and mix everything together until it’s combined. Finally, stir in some diced red onion, diced celery, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste.
Serve your avocado egg salad on top of whole wheat toast for a filling meal that will give you sustained energy throughout the night. Enjoy!
