Easy Healthy Dish

7

A friend of mine told me about a Recipe she found that could help me lose a little weight and eat better as well. The name of the Recipe was Easy Healthy Dish. She told me to make sure I made it so it would be easy. I told her I would. I’m glad she told me though because I do like to eat healthily but find it hard to do so on a daily basis. This Recipe is to help with that because it is easy, healthy, and delicious.

 Healthy Meals You Can Make in 10 Minutes or Less

You know the facts: Preparing meals at home is good for your health and your wallet. But let’s face it — you have other priorities taking up space in your schedule and minimal free time, so spending hours or even minutes in the kitchen isn’t always at the top of your to-do list.

So many things can crowd out meal prep (think: long hours at work, significant others, keeping in touch with family, maybe even a workout here and there).

Mediterranean Panzanella

17. Mediterranean Panzanella

Rather than top a salad with bagged croutons, whip up this Tuscan version with toasted pita bread.

There are the usual good-alone-but-better-together suspects expected in something called “Mediterranean”: tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, and olives. The olives are key since the fats in them help your body absorb the nutrients in the veggies.

Crunchy Asian Ramen Noodle Salad

15. Crunchy Asian Ramen Noodle Salad

This colorful, crunchy salad is just what the doctor ordered when leafy-greens-based varieties are boring you.

Crunchy coleslaw mix and dried ramen noodles (swap in crunchy rice noodles for a less-processed option) are tossed with avocado for healthy fat, edamame for protein, and mango for vision-protecting beta-carotene.

Quick and Easy Chicken Burrito

14. Quick & Easy Chicken Burrito

Leftover chicken finds a new home in this quick burrito. Mix it with avocado and cheese before wrapping it up in a tortilla and cooking it. We’d take it one step further and add some peppers, onions, and maybe some greens to the filling. Bonus: Make a few at once and freeze the extras for an even faster lunch next time.

Salmon and Herbed Bean Salad

13. Salmon and Herbed Bean Salad

Bored with tuna salad? Try canned salmon mixed with creamy cannellini beans, veggies, and fresh herbs for a super easy meal that’s as delicious on its own as it is in a pita or with whole-grain crackers.

Creamy Buffalo Chicken and Black Bean Quesadillas

16. Creamy Buffalo Chicken Black Bean Quesadillas

If you always reach for the wings on game day, this is the lunch quesadilla for you. It’s spicy, creamy, and loaded with flavor. Black beans bump up the fiber and protein, and green onions add a little extra zing. Feel free to scale back on the sour cream or use Greek yogurt instead.

Tomato Salad–Stuffed Avocados

12. Tomato-Stuffed Avocados

Not only good for guacamole, moist desserts, and rich smoothies, avocados are designed to be stuffed!

Remove the pit and fill the center with a mixture of tomato, feta, onion, and herbs for a filling meal that’s pretty enough to serve at a brunch. After all, not every breakfast-meets-lunch recipe should take hours to prepare.

Caprese Quesadilla

19. Caprese Quesadilla

Italian and Mexican favorites team up for a mashup that’s better than anything mixed by a DJ. The how-to is pretty obvious: Fill a tortilla with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil; cook until the cheese is melted; and drizzle with balsamic glaze for a flavor-packed final touch.

Herb and Onion Frittata

18. Herb Onion Frittata

While this recipe uses liquid eggs, you can substitute two whole eggs since the cholesterol and fat in the real thing are nothing to worry about. Add whatever herbs — fresh or dried — appeal to you, since they all have different flavors and health benefits.

Like pizza and mashed potatoes, frittata tastes just as good cold as it does hot, so go ahead and double the recipe and eat the other half for breakfast tomorrow.

Turkey-Provolone Wrap with Avocado Mayo

20. Turkey Provolone Wrap with Avocado Mayo

This isn’t just another turkey sandwich. Smear mayo and heart-healthy avocado on a tortilla and roll it up with lettuce, provolone, and tomato. This recipe is soft, creamy, and crunchy, but view it as a starting place and play with other fillings.GREATIST NEWSLETTERBe your Greatist, every day

No jade eggs. Just real tips and ways to make health matter.

Zucchini Pasta with Vegan Cashew-Basil Pesto

26. Zucchini Pasta With Vegan Cashew Basil Pesto

The addition of cashews — a good source of bone-building phosphorus, energy-producing magnesium, and other minerals — makes pesto incredibly creamy. Make the sauce in a food processor, spiralize zucchini (or use a vegetable peeler), and combine the two. Then dig in!

Rating: 4.5 stars206Indian food is not just curried sauces. It’s not too exotic either. Unless ‘exotic’ is code for ‘yummy and full of flavor.’ This dish features a healthy mixture of chickpeas, tomatoes, onion, and spices. Both carnivores and vegetarians will enjoy this meal. My kids love it. Leave out the green chile if the kiddies will be eating. Serve over basmati or jasmine rice and enjoy. Namaste, y’all!
