In need of quick and easy healthy dinner recipes that taste good? Try one of the following recipes. They are plant based but nutritionally balanced. They are low fat, low cholesterol, and high fiber. These healthy vegetarian meals are sure to find their way into the healthy cooking recipe box.
As the last meal of the day, a healthy dinner is needed to balance out and offset our eating behavior from earlier in the day. If you have consumed food with little nutritional value, dinner is the opportunity to recover by using a healthy dinner recipe. You might be thinking about not eating. Skipping meals is not the answer, however a snack made from one of our healthy snack recipes will be more beneficial nutritionally.
If you have not eaten all day and you are so hungry that you could eat your shoe, start slow with a healthy nibble, like a few carrots or celery sticks with a tablespoon of bean dip like hummus (See recipe). It keeps in the fridge well for days!). This should take the edge off so that you can get into the rhythm of creating a healthy dinner.
