Clean Eating Dinner Ideas
Cooking your own meals is essential in your quest towards becoming healthier. It’s easy to want to go out to a restaurant or grab convenience foods, but with planning, you will be able to quickly prepare healthy dinners from scratch. Avoiding processed foods at dinnertime will end your day off on the right foot and move you closer to your health and fitness goals.
Fresh vegetables are a no-brainer when it comes to clean eating. Vegetables can be enjoyed raw at dinnertime in a salad using olive oil and balsamic vinegar as a dressing. They can also be steamed or grilled and spiced up with some garlic or other seasonings. There is a fresh vegetable that can be paired with almost anything, so dinnertime should always include a plate full of vegetables.
Grilling meat is a great way to bring out the flavours without needing to add much seasoning (or extra calories). Some meats, such as chicken and fish, are just as delicious when baked. Cheeses are a favourite, and can add savoury flavour to almost any dish. Organic eggs are also packed with protein and vitamins.
Grains and Carbs
Whole grain pasta and rice can serve as a great starting point for dinner. There are literally thousands of pasta and rice dishes out there, and can all be adapted towards a clean eating lifestyle.
