You may think that preparing healthy, delicious dinners at home is a complicated process, but I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be. With recipes this easy, weeknights can be way less stressful. 

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes: Sweet potatoes are loaded with beneficial nutrients like beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. Stuff it with ingredients like sautéed veggies, beans, chicken, and cheese. This meal is super versatile, and you can choose from a variety of flavor combinations.

Grain Bowls: Grains provide an important source of fiber and other nutrients like magnesium. To prepare a grain bowl, top a serving of cooked grains of your choice with cooked or raw veggies and a protein source like chicken, fried or hard-boiled eggs, grilled shrimp, or salmon.

Veggie Loaded Frittatas: Eggs have you covered when it comes to healthy fat and protein, so all you need to do is add a variety of your favorite veggies to cover your fiber needs.

Dinner Salads: The key to making a hearty dinner salad is making sure that you include plenty of protein, healthy fats, and fiber. Start with a base of your favorite greens. Add a few more veggies, such as peppers, cucumbers, carrots, broccoli, or red onions, to bump up the fiber content. Then choose a protein source like grilled chicken, shrimp, salmon, or hard-boiled eggs.

One Pot Soups: Soups can be simple to prepare and make a perfect choice for meal prep, as you can make large portions easily.

Whole Roasted Chicken:  Roasting a whole chicken may take some time but, it couldn’t be any simpler. Stuff the bottom of the roasting pan with potato wedges, onions, and carrot chunks so the veggies cook along with the chicken.
