What are You Having for Dinner?

It is not hard to prepare a healthy dinner even if you have had a busy day at the office or caring for your kids at home. If you're not sure where to start, consider the following recipe ideas. They can easily be adapted to suit your particular needs and tastes.

Soups

Soup is both healthy and easy to make. Start by adding your favorite meat, be it chicken, turkey, beef, pork, lamb, venison or seafood. Don't cut meat off the bones as the bones not only add extra flavor but also extra nutrition. Throw in potatoes along with a few vegetables and add spices such as garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, oregano and/or basil.

Baked Dishes

You can bake just about any type of meat. Simply add a few spices, drizzle some olive oil or canola oil on top and put it in the oven. Add the vegetables of your choice to your baked meat tray as the meat juices give the vegetables additional flavor.

Barbecued Dishes

Everyone likes a barbecue so put your grill to good use whenever you want a tasty, easy to prepare meal. Slice the meat thin so it cooks quickly and marinate it ahead of time to enhance the taste. You can also grill vegetables such as potatoes, corn, eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli and mushrooms. Eat your grilled food with whole wheat bread or brown rice.

Slow Cooker Recipes

If you have limited cooking time and are serious about eating right, consider investing in a slow cooker. These appliances are easy to use and will slowly cook food throughout the day while you are at work or out running errands.

Eating right does not have to involve complicated meal prep. Consider your options, shop for healthy foods that are easy to cook and then experiment to see which recipes you like best.
