On top of being a total boss lady, you might be trying to start a new fitness routine and keep up with those healthy recipes you’re saving on Pinterest. Accomplishing it all may seem like an impossible feat, but with the help of healthy slow-cooker recipes and quick clean meals, the execution is a piece of low-carb cake. To simplify it even further, we’ve gathered clean-eating recipes that will keep you healthy and get you out of your dinner rut once and for all.

 

Cheesy Steak Keto Tacos

Going keto is one way to really cut your carbs, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up all of your guilty pleasures. This recipe lets you keep Taco Tuesday alive, even on this specialty diet. Plus, who doesn’t want a taco shell made out of cheese?

Instant Pot Steamed Cod With Ginger Scallion Sauce

From a frozen state, fish only takes 5 minutes to pressure-cook. From there, it’s just about adding the sauce and serving with rice, which you can sub out for brown rice or riced cauliflower. Top with ginger and scallions and you’re golden.

Mediterranean Boneless Pork Chops

They don’t call pork chops the other white meat for nothing. When you grow tired of eating chicken night after night, these Mediterranean chops will revive your love for healthy eating. You can top with all your favorite veggies, and some extra feta.

One-Pan Healthy Sausage and Veggies

Sheet pan meals are essential in your weeknight recipe repertoire, and we love that this one makes lots of leftovers. You have to consider cleaning time as well as cooking time, and this dish has the minimal amount of each.

Chicken Zoodle Soup

Swapping zucchini noodles for regular noodles is the easiest way to lighten up a meal. The broth will still help you when you’re feeling under the weather and the chicken offers a good bit of protein. You’ll barely even miss the carbs.

One-Pot Burrito Bowls

Why not make your burrito naked? Nix the chemical-laden flour tortilla and instead, make a burrito bowl with all of your favorite toppings. We’re talking tomatoes, cheese, cilantro, corn, beans, and olives. Pass the salsa, please!

Herb-Crusted Salmon

You can’t go wrong when it comes to salmon. It’s buttery, quick-cooking, and full of healthy fats. Simply cover with mustard and coat with breadcrumbs and herbs before baking on high heat. We recommend pairing with a lighter side to balance out the meal.

Spicy Shrimp and Cauliflower Mash With Garlic Kale

Clean dinners that you can also serve on date night are hard to come by. But not impossible! Pair this spicy shrimp and creamy cauliflower mash with a glass of red wine, and the two of you definitely won’t feel deprived. Cooking the kale in bacon fat is just the cherry on top.

Baked Bell Pepper Tacos

This stuffed-pepper-meets-taco hybrid is calling your name, regardless of whether or not it’s Taco Tuesday. You can prep these ahead of time and have them ready to pop in the oven when you get home. Save a few for the next day to make your work lunch a whole lot more colorful.

Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Pasta Salad With Kale and Artichokes

No one said you have to give up pasta to eat clean. Thank goodness! Go for a gluten-free quinoa penne and you can have your fix whenever you want. The kale and the artichokes, which add some extra nutrients, are always a good idea.
