VEGETARIAN

Here is a selection of the best vegetarian recipes. Easy overnight meals that you can have prepared in no time. Simple recipes that have been tweaked for the healthy side with lots of fresh crisp veggies or vegetables that have been slowly cooked, roasted, or sauteed.

These are recipes that you will not only love, but that your whole family can enjoy. We personally eat vegetarian meals at least once or twice a week and we all love them.

If you like a salad or soup you can also use it as a garnish. However, I love a main salad or a big bowl of soup. That is a complete meal for me.

The satisfying part of these recipes are the added textures of vegetables, nuts, chickpeas, pumpkin seeds, quinoa, pine nuts, and more.

SEAFOOD

Seafood is another way to incorporate healthy fats and protein into your diet. A fast and delicious meal can be prepared with fish and seafood.

Shrimp may be high in cholesterol, but they are low in total fat and contain almost no saturated fat. Prep time for most of these dinners is quick, too, so try some of them this week!

MEAT / TURKEY / CHICKEN

I love easy and quick recipes for healthy dinners. Using turkey and chicken can be a healthy meal, but you can also add the correct portion of beef.

I love taking a steak, cooking it to perfection, slicing it and sharing it with the family with lots of vegetables like in our Mediterranean Steak Salad.

Some of these recipes are also very low in carbohydrates if that's what you're looking for. However, they are all easy dinner recipes for any night of the week.

Doing a little food preparation ahead of time can help you make easy dinners. Just setting aside 15 minutes to chop and prepare some vegetables or meat can help you in the final preparation.

This can be in the morning or at night before or just when you get home. Then preparing a healthy dinner can be very quick. Try some of these recipes, our Healthy Mini Pepper Low Carb Nachos are also great for game day!
