Eat Dinner Night

Regarding deciding what to eat for dinner, there are many considerations. What time of day is it? What are you in the mood for? What do you have on hand? These are just a few of the questions that can help narrow down your options and make dinner time a little less daunting.

If it’s night time and you’re wondering what to eat for dinner, there are many great options available. If you’re looking for something quick and easy, consider ordering takeout or heating up leftovers. If you’re in the mood for something more filling or satisfying, homemade soup, pasta, or a big salad can hit the spot. And if you want to get creative in the kitchen, try coming up with your own unique dish using whatever ingredients you have on hand. No matter what you choose, just remember to enjoy your meal and savor every bite!

Seared Cod + Kale Orzo

Seared Cod + Kale Orzo is a healthy, delicious and easy to make dinner option that is perfect for busy weeknights. This dish is packed with protein and nutrients, and the orzo provides a nice, filling carb to round out the meal. The kale adds a touch of bitterness and an extra nutritional punch, while the seared cod is flaky and moist. This dish can be on your table in less than 30 minutes, making it a great option for those nights when you don’t have a lot of time to cook.

Taco Rice Bowls

Now it’s time to assemble your taco rice bowls. Start by adding some cooked rice to each bowl. Top with the beef and bean mixture, then add your favorite toppings such as shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, sour cream, or avocado slices. If you like things spicy, you can also add some hot sauce or jal ape o peppers to your bowl. Enjoy!

Deli Turkey Wrap

1. Start by Spread mayonnaise, mustard, or another condiment of your choice on the inside of the tortilla.

2. Add 1-2 slices of deli turkey breast.

3. Top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, and/or any other vegetables you like.

4. Roll up the tortilla tightly, then cut in half or in thirds for smaller wraps. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for later.

Roasted Salmon + Veggies

Assuming you’re looking for a recipe, here is one for roasted salmon and veggies. This meal is relatively simple to make and only requires a few ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen. The salmon can be swapped out for any other type of fish, and the veggies can be customized to your liking. This dish is also healthy, as salmon is packed with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins, and vegetables are rich in nutrients.

To start, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Next, wash your vegetables (we used broccoli and carrots) and cut them into bite-sized pieces. Spread the veggies on to the baking sheet. Cut your salmon fillets into similar-sized pieces as the veggies and place them on top of the vegetables. Season everything with salt, pepper, garlic powder, lemon juice, and olive oil (or another cooking oil of your choice).

Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast for 20-25 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through (flakes easily with a fork). Once everything is done cooking, transfer to plates or bowls and enjoy!
