Top 5 Healthy, Tasty and Easy Ideas for Dinner
It dawned on me while I was on my lunch break at work that I eat as unhealthily as someone possibly can. This called for a change and I decided that dinner will always be a slab of health and abundance.
Countless illnesses can be a consequence of eating poorly, so as much as I love my hamburgers and bacon sandwiches, I am now more aware of the damage I’ve dealt with my body throughout the years.
Here are 5 amazing dinner ideas that I and my girlfriend make at least 1 time a week for health benefits.
Pasta Fredda consists of tuna, cherry tomatoes, corn, baby spinach, mozzarella, peppers, and zucchini. Naturally, you can add up everything you want as long as it goes with pasta. Simply boil your pasta (we usually use penne), add two cans of shredded tuna and the diced vegetables.
Add a few drops of sunflower seed oil or olive oil. This is one of the most delicious meals in the world and the most frequent dish in our house.
Roasted Chicken with Radish and Pea Salad
You can also add asparagus to the salad; season it with thyme (fresh leaves are recommended), salt, black pepper and a few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice. You can cut up the chicken into strips and add them to the salad or you can serve it with salad on the side.
Broccoli and Mushrooms
I actually hated broccoli when I was a kid. I love it now, though. Saute 3 cloves of garlic for 2-3 minutes and then add the mushrooms. Add the broccoli when the mushrooms are drained of their juice.
Season with black pepper, salt and a few pinches of rosemary. Take my word for it – you’ll love this dish. First of all, it’s an overdose of vitamins; second of all, it’s ready in like 20 minutes.
Fish Fillets with Garlic and Zucchini
You can use whatever type of fish you want. We like to experiment so we buy fillets of a different species each week. We place the fillets in the oven with zucchini and other vegetables until they’re done.
Maybe other people put a few garlic cloves in the tray – we smash a few in a bowl, mix it with fresh dill and then add 2 drops of vinegar, a few drops of water and a few drops of olive oil. The result – especially in combination with the fish and roasted vegetables – is to die for.
Stuffed with what? Vegetables and rice of course – Sometimes, with chicken, as well. Simply scoop out the soft part of the eggplants and fill them with your favorite combo of vegetables and rice. Meat isn’t compulsory, but you can add some of that, too.
Garlic, obviously, shouldn’t miss either. This recipe is a bit more complex than it sounds, so we advise you to look it up.
Believe it or not, healthy dishes are more tasteful than all the fast-food you’ll ever try out. Plus, you won’t need to spend a few hundreds of dollars in order to alleviate your poor nutrition-related illnesses.
We’re not saying that you should become vegan or whatnot – just find a balance. If you eat a lot of unhealthy food at work, then, by all means, have a healthy dinner. You owe yourself that much.
