Healthy Dinner Ideas

Healthy Dinner Ideas – looking to mix up your dinner, but want to keep it healthy?  Here are 20 of my favorite healthy dinner recipes for any night of the week.  

Let’s face it, healthy eating can sometimes to boring.  You think it needs to be a piece of lean protein like chicken or fish with a salad and vegetables on the side.  But that is not entirely true!  You can add so much flavor and make it so you don’t think you are eating health food.

Around the beginning of the year especially people are searching for healthy dinner ideas. So today I am sharing 20 of my favorites. There are some carbs, because unless there is a medical reason, I don’t believe in restrictive diets.  All things moderation!!

There are plenty of chicken recipes, and even a salad thrown in – but they are totally different than your baked or sauteed piece of chicken with a salad on the side.  Trust me, you will not be bored!
