Keep Meals Simple!
Healthy, clean food doesn't have to take long, be hard to prepare or have a lot of ingredients. Make it easy and keep ingredients to a minimum. All you need to do is include a lean protein, a healthy fat, a fruit and/or veggie and a whole grain at each meal.
Here are a few examples of fast, clean, healthy and easy dinner ideas:
- Saute onion, halved grape tomatoes and chopped green bell pepper in extra virgin olive oil until slightly tender. Add a chicken breast and serve over whole wheat angel hair pasta.
- Sear fresh shrimp in coconut oil with herbs of choice and scallions. Serve over a bed of mixed greens and top with pear (or any fresh fruit) slices.
- Stuff kalamata olives, roasted red pepper and feta cheese in a grilled or sauteed chicken breast. Serve over quinoa or whole wheat couscous and steamed green beans.
