When it comes to healthy dinners, it’s easy to get stuck. Trying to come up with a meal that’s healthy, delicious and that won’t take you a lifetime to whip up is a challenging task in itself. So I’m here to make things easy for you with 10 of my favourite healthy dinner recipes. The best part is these not only tick all the boxes nutritionally but they will all take you less than 30 minutes to whip together so they’re perfect for weeknight dinners!



1.         Tangled Thai Chicken Salad 

The ultimate easy dinner, this Thai Chicken Salad takes just 15 minutes to put together. This one is as simple as chopping and tossing and takes no cooking time. Don’t be afraid to use up your leftover veggies with this one too (snow peas, broccoli, cucumber and leftover herbs like parsley and chives would work well here).



2.         Jerk Salmon Bowl

This Jamaican-inspired salmon dish served with fruity summer salsa is always a winner at my place. It’s also a delicious way to get your daily dose of omega-3 fatty acids. A good tip here is to have staples like cooked Basmati rice in the freezer to make quick dinners like this one even faster.



3.         Skillet Korean Chicken Nachos


There’s nothing I love more than ‘cheat meal’ (or treat meal as I like to call it) that’s actually healthy. Trust me, after trying these 15 minute nachos you won’t make them any other way. With delicious glazed Korean chicken, crunchy corn chips, fresh avo, cucumber, carrot and plenty of cheese these nachos are the ultimate crowd pleaser.


4.         Spicy Fish Taco Bowl


This taco bowl is packed with three types of vegies, anti-inflammatory turmeric, deliciously creamy avocado and fish - one of the most lean, healthy sources protein you can have. Even better - it’ll only take you 5 minutes to cook!




5.         5 Minute fig radicchio

I always love a mixture of sweet and savoury, and this 5 minute salad is the perfect way to get the best of both worlds. This is a killer combination of bitter radicchio leaves with sweet figs that makes this one perfect on its own or a great side salad.



6.         Skin Beauty Salad


This is the perfect dish when you’re looking to whip up something fresh and fuss free. The best part?  This one combines plenty of ingredients that are vital for good skin health, like avocado, nuts, and leafy greens to give you a beauty boost.



7.         Mushroom Chilli Spinach Pasta

In the mood for a nutritious but hearty dish for dinner?  You have come to the right place. This mushroom, chilli and spinach pasta is packed full of vegetables and I have no doubt it will hit the spot.


8.         Beef Spring Roll Bowl 


This is one of my favourites when I feel like something hearty and packed with Asian flavour. The best part about this dish is that it’s cooked in one pan and we’ve managed to sneak in four different vegies and so it’s a healthy meal that’s great for the whole family.



9.         Lentil Meatball Wraps with Avocado and Cucumber Salsa

Green veggies are something we often lack in our diet, because let’s be real - when they’re not done correctly they can taste downright boring. Well the good news is - this is a delicious way to ‘green out’ your dinner. These vegetarian meatballs are packed with fresh parsley and served in a lettuce wrap to make this tasty meal nutrient dense and refreshing.



10.       Coconut Curry Meatballs


If you didn’t know already, coconut, curry, chicken and thyme make the ultimate tasty combination when combined in a meatball. Serve these ones with either steamed veggies, salad or rice and make extra as they’re great to keep handy in the freezer or to have for leftovers the next day.
