Healthy dinner ideas are hard to come by. Many people who want to eat healthier have trouble convincing the rest of their family to follow suit. Unfortunately, healthy food has gained a reputation for being bland and boring – this is simply not the case. However, what if you could create healthy, nutrient-dense meals that are both family-friendly and delicious? You can enjoy healthy, nutritious food and still adore every mouthful.
1). Spaghetti Bolognese
This is an absolute killer for my family. My daughter pretty much requests it 5 days a week. Mince may not be the most amazing source of protein, but you can ensure it’s a healthier version of mince by choosing grass-fed, organic beef mince, preferably from a trusted butcher. Instead of white pasta, choose organic rice pasta or even better, zucchini noodles!
2). Chicken and Vegetable Stew
This is a hearty and delicious meal. The only downside is that my family absolutely gorge themselves on this meal when I make it. Keep in mind that free-range meats are far higher in nutrients such as omega 3, so when purchasing your chicken for this meal, try to grab free-range!
3). Basil and Coriander Pesto Zoodles
I warn you, this dish is more-ish so you may want to make a double batch!! Rich in phytonutrients and healthy fats, this meal is so utterly packed with nutritional goodness! Simply create the pesto and stir through your blanched zucchini noodles. You can also use organic rice noodles.
4). Wholemeal Pizza
What family doesn’t love pizza? Kids adore helping with the toppings and it’s a great way to get extra veggies and nutrients into the family if you add nutritious toppings such as zucchini, tomato, pumpkin, and more. Let your imagination run away with you and try an endless combination of toppings. You can even use the above Basil Coriander Pesto recipe instead of a tomato paste base. This gives the entire pizza a completely different taste.
