Are you looking for healthy recipes for the week? For the past several years, I have focused on healthy recipes for families on a tight budget and to have fun too! It has been my pleasure to watch my children grow, and I want to help them in any way that I can. Recently, my teenage daughter and I were eating out at a local mall, and I was lucky enough to find a few healthy dishes that my daughter and I love to eat every day.
Here are my healthy dinners that work for us every single day. When I make one of these healthy dinners, I always plan and make sure that the ingredients are in the refrigerator or freezer before I begin cooking. One easy healthy dinner that I like to prepare is a roasted chicken thigh with spinach and asparagus on one pot of baked potatoes. This is a delicious and healthy meal that is ready to eat when you are ready to eat. Just be sure to set the oven to the desired temperature before you begin to prepare your dinner.
Baked sweet potato
Another easy dinner idea is a baked sweet potato with carrots and two eggs cooked in a skillet. This meal is so simple that you can even prepare it the night before and do it the next morning. If you are a bit creatively challenged, you can add some carrots and peppers to the mix to spruce it up a bit.
If you like roasted vegetables, you will love this delicious and easy-to-make pumpkin soup recipe. You prepare the pumpkin chunks and chop them into pieces. Then you throw in the vegetables that you like, such as fall butternut squash, carrots, celery, parsley, and water chestnuts, to give you a delicious and healthy meal that you can enjoy for a long time to come.
Cheddar cheese soup
If you have chicken as the main ingredient in your soup, I suggest using cheddar cheese in this recipe and your chicken and brown rice. To make this cheddar cheese soup recipe delicious, mix the milk, cream, and chopped pecans and add in your chicken and cheese. If you want to take it to another level, you can add in your bacon and sauteed mushrooms.
One-pan roast chicken
One very delicious chicken recipe that you might try is this one-pan roast chicken and vegetables. All you have to do in this recipe is to roast a whole chicken and then add carrots, celery, and potatoes. Then cover the top of the chicken with vegetable spray and place it in the slow cooker. This dish is excellent because it only uses a single pan to cook everything. It’s much healthier than cooking the meal over rice.
Chicken and swede soup recipe
Another wonderful recipe for chicken and vegetables is this one-pan roast chicken and swede soup. In this recipe, you will roast one half a pound of turkey and then add in one tablespoon of dried cranberries, one tablespoon of dried thyme, and then cover the whole thing until it is done. Once this is done, you add in your low-fat cheddar cheese and mix in well.
If you are looking for a healthy yet super delicious recipe, you should try this easy chicken and swede soup recipe. In this recipe, all you have to do is to use a swede, cut up half a pound of boneless, skinless chicken, and then saute both pieces of chicken in a bit of olive oil until they are almost cooked. Then add some chopped fresh herbs and then mix in your chopped veggies until everything is thoroughly blended. You then heat your water, pour in some beer, and serve this on top of your baked chicken. This recipe is excellent, and you should make it a part of your normal diet.
