Even though Louisa has penned these for dinners, the recipes below are going to be perfect for lunches for me! Working from home is amazing, but I tend to get a little crazy around lunchtime. More often than not I don’t stop for lunch until I’m already hangry, so these will be great to turn to when I need to whip something up, fast!
7 Super Healthy Dinners Ready in 30 Minutes or Less
Guest post by Louisa from Living Lou
I found that I have been feeling pretty sluggish recently, I think it’s a combination of a little overindulgence during the holidays and just some bad eating habits. My office is the worst for treats; there is always something sweet hanging around for that afternoon craving. To get my diet cleaned up a bit, one of my friends and I decided to do a little bit of a detox to reset our bodies. Boy did it work! It was only five days, but this mindful eating has helped me come back to that healthier style of cooking that I love.
I don’t like to put restrictions on my diet, and I’m pretty lucky that I don’t have any food allergies, but I’m definitely going to be more aware of the amount of sugar and dairy that I eat and also just eating healthier meals in general. I’ve rounded up seven super healthy dinners that are ready in 30 minutes or less; these are my go-to dinners that I make pretty much all the time.
This is ready in just 20 minutes and my go-to for cold days when I feel like eating something lighter. If you love Asian-style soups (think pho or ramen), then you’ll love this recipe. It’s gluten-free (uses rice noodles) and vegan
A quick vegetarian stir fry served over brown rice (or coconut brown rice) is super healthy and quick dinner, I love this version because it’s packed with veggies and tofu.
I make this tabbouleh for lunches on a Sunday to eat throughout the week. You could use quinoa in place of farro, but I like to vary my diet and include more ancient grains. I love the nuttiness of farro, and it’s available in pretty much every grocery store now.
Another quick vegetarian dinner, I like to use whole wheat wraps but if you’re sensitive to gluten you can always use corn wraps instead.
There is nothing I love more than a huge chopped salad! I love to make this homemade creamy (and vegan) herbed tofu dressing — it’s like a ranch dressing but better.
Despite the name, you can totally make this salad all year! Packed with veggies, quinoa, and fresh herbs this is a quick and healthy dinner. Perfect if you want to go vegetarian and sans-gluten.
You can’t have a list of fast and healthy dinners without a fish recipe on there! Fish can be expensive, so I don’t eat it all the time, but when I do you can bet that I’m making this miso salmon with snow peas.
