HEALTHY DINNER RECIPES
After a long day, sometimes the last thing you want to do is cook dinner. Before you order takeout, or
subject yourself to leftovers for the umpteenth time, we’ve got another idea. These 30-minute meals
are healthy, easy to cook and varied enough to address your every craving. We’ve got Asian-inspired
dishes, seafood and vegetarian options — and most importantly, tacos. Did we mention that many of
these dinners actually take less than 30 minutes to pull together?
What’s more, these dinners are all low-calorie enough that you could probably justify a glass of wine on
the side — and maybe even dessert, too. Stash the menus, turn on some music and prepare yourself for
the easiest half-hour of cooking you’ve ever done. (Vegetarians, be sure to scroll down for plenty of
1. Miso Glazed Salmon Recipe with Snap Peas
If you’ve ever ordered up a miso-glazed dish at a fancy restaurant, we bet you’d be surprised to know
how simple it is to prepare. Just a few minutes under the broiler is all it takes for the pink fish to cook in
its sweet-and-savory sauce. Prepare to impress yourself — and maybe some guests — with your cooking
Before you order Chinese, it’s worth noting that these lettuce wraps will probably be ready faster than
your food would even arrive. Topped with low-sodium soy and plum sauce, you’ll get all the great taste
of takeout, without the bloat factor.
2. Steak and Cauliflower Potatoes with Sautéed Spinach Recipe
Prep a whole steak dinner in just 22 minutes? Believe it. These super lean top sirloins only need to be
cooked for three to six minutes per side. Not to mention that this cheesy, garlicky cauliflower mash can
be whipped up in way less time than it takes to mash potatoes.
3. Quick and Easy Taco Salad Recipe
Your hearty salad will be ready faster than you can say, “Yo quiero Taco Bell.” (Well, almost.) In just 10
minutes, you’ll be staring down a steaming plate of lean ground beef, cheese, baked tortilla chips and all
the other good stuff that makes tacos so loveable. At less than 500 calories a serving, we won’t tell if
you decide to add a spoonful of guacamole on top, too.
4. Mac and Cheese Scrambled Eggs Recipe
The best of both worlds: Scrambled eggs and mac and cheese become one in this lightened up meal
chock full of your favorite comfort foods. Despite how sinful it looks, you’ll only find about one ounce of
cheese per serving. Take things to the next level by adding turkey bacon and hot sauce to the mix.
Sounds like the perfect post-happy hour dinner to us.
5. Quinoa and Shrimp Grits Recipe
By cutting the butter and swapping some of the cheese usually found in grits for nonfat yogurt, this bowl
full of Southern goodness gets a healthy makeover. Add a dose of green to your dinner by mixing in four
cups of nutrient-packed Swiss chard (some people are saying it’s — gasp — the new kale).
1. Kale Chicken Caesar Salad Recipe
Say adios to croutons and welcome crispy chickpeas to the top of your salad, instead. That’s just one
way this plate of greens is different from the Caesar salads you might be used to. Get even crazier by
adding hearts of palm, apples and kale (as opposed to less nutrient-dense romaine).
6. Baked Tilapia with Radish Relish Recipe
Healthy food never looked so good. Tilapia is both high in protein and a good source of omega-3 fatty
acids, which can help reduce inflammation. Meanwhile, the radishes in your relish are known to aid
digestion and eliminate toxins in the body. You might leave the table feeling better than you did when
you sat down
7. Grilled Pesto Salmon Kebabs Recipe
Did you know that pesto, minus pine nuts, equals fewer calories? These kebabs work well with shrimp or
swordfish, too, so feel free to mix it up. Use your leftover spread on salads or sandwiches for the next
day or two.
8. Grilled Fish Tacos Recipe
Fish tacos can be sinful if fried. But cook them in a skillet and you’ve got a plate with only 325 calories
and 25 grams of protein. Sub tilapia for any other white flaky fish, if you’d like. Don’t forget the
9. Healthy Low-Carb BLT Recipe
We all know BLTs are all about the bacon, so why not scrap the bread? Wrap the good stuff up in
lettuce, instead. Add in avocado and egg to give each bite a creamy texture, no mayo required.
10. Sesame Peanut Noodles
Grab your chopsticks. This easy Asian noodle dish is packed full of whole-wheat spaghetti, chicken,
mushrooms, peppers, snow peas and zucchini. The sesame and peanut butter-based sauce imbues each
bite with tons of flavor.
11. Steak with Chimichurri Sauce Recipe
The tangy chimichurri sauce atop lean steak keeps this red meat dish surprisingly light and refreshing.
Need something more? Serve it with a side of sweet potato fries, if you’re in a meat-and-potatoes kind
12. Pear and Prosciutto Pizza Recipe
Restaurant pizza, meet your healthier cousin. Pop prosciutto (leaner than pepperoni), goat cheese, pear
and arugula on top of a whole-wheat pizza crust at home. Slide it in the oven and you’ll have a sweet
and savory pie in less than 30 minutes.
13. Roasted Salmon with Cucumber Dill Yogurt
Make this your new go-to dish when you’re feeling rushed. It’s crazy easy to prepare (yes, even that
creamy yogurt sauce) and makes an excellent source of vitamin D, vitamin B-12 and lean protein.
Dinner. Is. Served.
14. Mexican Cauliflower Couscous Salad Recipe
Sub out real couscous for cauliflower to create a gluten-free entrée that’s also full of nutrients (like
vitamins C and K). You can throw together this dish in just 15 minutes — and you’ll probably have plenty
left over for lunch tomorrow, too.
15. Bulgur Greek Salad Recipe
No finely chopped ingredients here. This hearty salad contains juicy chunks of cucumber, tomato, olives
and onions, and a helping of creamy feta cheese. Combine it with a base of bulgur wheat, and you get a
salad that’s truly satisfying.
16. Vegetarian Black Bean Burgers Recipe
Whether you’re trying to cut back on saturated fats, or stick to a meat-free lifestyle, this black bean
patty is the best substitute for a burger. Go ahead and make yours a double — there are only 115
calories in each three-ounce patty.
17. Corn, Black Bean and Quinoa Salad Recipe
Give your quinoa salad a south of the border twist. The combination of black beans and quinoa hooks
this dish up with 12 grams of protein per serving. Cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice add extra mouthwatering flavor.
18. Raw Rainbow Collard Greens Wrap Recipe
Eat the rainbow (no, not Skittles) with this vibrantly colored lettuce wrap. Those collard greens offer up
an array of nutrients, including vitamins A, C and K, making it a great source of antioxidants and antiinflammatory properties. It’ll look pretty enough on your plate to be Instagram-worthy, too.
