10 Healthy Dinner Ideas For Weight Loss
I’m keeping this list of dinner ideas for weight loss to the minimum (for now) so that I can make your decision much easier. I will sort them according to my preference though.
Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetables
Teriyaki Chicken is divine and easy to make to make. I love the one pot meals because they save me on the cleaning up too. It is my favorite of the 10 healthy dinner ideas for weight loss.
Easy Oven Baked Salmon Recipe
This easy oven baked salmon recipe is one of the quickest to make, and has very few ingredients (music to my ears).
Low Carb Cauliflower Pot Pies
Embracing the low carb lifestyle meant that I had to be creative with my “allowed foods” like the cauliflower. It was such a pleasant surprise for me to realize the things I could do with this superfood! I hope you’ll enjoy the Pot Pies.
Balsamic Chicken with Asparagus and Tomatoes
Another one-pot meal (lovely!). This takes 10 minutes to prepare, and 20 to cook. This is perfect for the busy mom and dads who can only fit 30 minutes of cooking.
Chicken Parmesan Zucchini Boats
Am I the only one who never knows what to do with Zucchini? Well, that is no longer an issue for me. This Zucchini boat recipe has few ingredients, and very friendly towards “low-carbers”. It is a perfect way to hide those veggies from the kids too.
Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps
Two low-calorie foods are at play here: Turkey and lettuce. This green ingredient has become a lifesaver when avoiding those “bready” and “carby” wraps. It may not be the same thing, but believe me – it does work with the psyche. I no longer feel left out when playing the food substitution game.
Chicken, broccoli & beetroot salad with avocado pesto
This one is packed with superfoods and has under 10g of carbs. I must say that the thought of beetroot and broccoli together did take me back for a second. Both ingredients are packed with iron, so they are bound to be awesome together!
Japanese Fried Rice
I love (d) fried rice, although it is not something I consume much anymore. This should work just as well with cauli-rice. That of course, is only for those who are watching their carb intake. The fried rice recipe is still low in calories – making it perfect for everyone else.
Easy Crockpot Dinner Recipes
Of course, there is always easy dinner crockpot dinner recipes that you can whip up and let cook while you are busy with your day. You can select the ones that do agree with your healthy lifestyle!
