People always ask me how do I manage to maintain a clean eating lifestyle while doing many other things on a daily basis. The answer is simple: Meal Prep. It might surprise you, but I don’t like to cook 3 meals from scratch every day of the week. I don’t have time for that. So I rely on meal prep. I also rely on easy healthy recipes.

I like to save time and to have healthy dishes in the fridge all the time. In this way, I have no reason to eat something that’s not healthy or good for me.

If you are like me, you’ll love these meal prep recipes. All these healthy meal ideas are perfect for people who are busy but want to eat healthy.

I know anyone who tries to eat healthy struggles with finding healthy dinner ideas or easy lunch ideas. Including me. Finding healthy dishes that are tasty and loved by the entire family can be a tricky journey. However, I believe it’s possible. And I have 50+ recipes that support my theory. No need for complicated steps and compromising on taste, simple healthy recipes can be amazing. And easy.

5 BONUS TIPS FOR MAKING HEALTHY MEALS EXTRA DELICIOUS

I told you that I struggled with finding delicious healthy recipes. I am serious. I did struggle a lot when I began my clean eating journey. Not anymore. Because, after testing many healthy meal ideas, I realized simple healthy recipes are the best. As long as you use the right ingredients and you embrace meal prepping, you don’t have to struggle with your meals anymore.

  • Opt for fresh ingredients – fresh veggies are the best in simple healthy recipes – the taste and flavors of your healthy dishes will definitely be better if you use fresh veggies
  • Chicken breast is a healthy lean protein, but if you don’t want to get tired of it, you have to make it taste amazing – make marinades, experiment with spices, and use your slow cooker to prep and cook chicken. I know grilling chicken is very easy but there are other options that are just as easy but also more delicious.
  • Use natural ingredients and stay away from processed, refined ingredients. Natural ingredients are healthier and they will make your healthy dishes taste better too.
  • Make a plan and try meal prep recipes – meal prep recipes will allow you to have easy healthy meals in your fridge all the time.
  • Opt for low-carb options in your favorite dishes – cauliflower is a great rice alternative and zucchini noodles work great instead of pasta. If you do this, you won’t have to part ways with your favorite comfort foods, you’ll just make them better.
