There are also tons of food videos with step by step instructions on how to make your new favorites.
All mamas have different standards when it comes to how they want their kids to eat. However, all mamas are also busy AF and none of us have spare time to spend in the kitchen!
Which is why I strive to make easy healthy recipes PRACTICAL for everyday mamas.
It wasn’t until my late thirties that I actually began to cook at all. I grew up mostly on fast-food. And while I do know my way around a kitchen now, I simply don’t have the patience (or the time) to be in there very long.
This means that I tend to stick to easy, healthy recipes that suit my family’s lifestyle.
I prefer no-bake ANYTHING (chocolate energy bars comes to mind) and truly love healthy recipes for kids that can be whipped up in under thirty minutes and have the least likely chance I’ll mess them up. Simple is best.
I tend to focus on quick, easy meals, and snacks as both my daughters like to join me in the kitchen helping. This allows them to learn and us to bring up the conversation of food and what it does for our bodies.
Tips For Healthy Dinner Recipes
When it comes to healthy dinner recipes, I can’t be bothered whipping up anything too fancy. Below is pretty much my go-to solution for easy dinner recipes:
- Pick a protein (tofu, chicken, beef etc)
- Choose 2-3 veggies and roast them
- Grab a grain (our favorites for healthy dinner recipes are quinoa, basmati rice or chickpea noodles)
- Whip up a sauce
Truth be told, I rotate through this formula more often than not. And while my dinner ideas may look or sound a bit fancier. I promise they are not (who has the time?).
Almost all of the healthy dinner recipes take 20-30 minutes to make and they’re loaded with whole foods.
