Healthy Dinner Recipes

Dinner is one of the most exciting meals of the day. While breakfast and lunch are often eaten while you’re at work or on the go, making a healthy dinner provides the opportunity for you to unwind and nourish your body. If you’re stuck in a dinner rut, try to mentally transition how you view this meal. Shifting to thinking about dinner as a chance for you to flex your creativity and balance your nutritional needs can inject new energy into your evening routine.

To ensure you get the nutrition you need, focus on whole grains, lean protein, and plenty of fruits and vegetables. These foods provide the nutrients your body needs to repair tissues and maintain health. Their high protein and fiber content will keep you full until the morning. Adding a piece of fruit for a healthy dessert is a great way to end your meal (and your day) on a nutritious note. Try the following dinner recipes for a nutritionally complete meal, and feel free to swap in your favorite vegetables to make the dish your own:
