Quick Dinner Options That Won't Ruin Your Diet

Keeping a healthy diet can be tough. You’re rocking along fine until a busy night comes along. Suddenly you find yourself pulling through the drive through or reaching for the frozen pizza. To keep this from happening, it is important to have some quick and healthy options on hand. Here are some great dinner options for those busy nights that won’t ruin your diet completely.

Salad

You don’t have to have a salad already prepared. Just stock your refrigerator full of the foods necessary for a delicious salad any night of the week. Lettuce, tomato, mandarin oranges, pineapple, diced ham, boiled eggs, and grilled chicken make for a delicious and quick salad. This is a great low calorie dinner that can literally be thrown together at the last minute.

Egg White Omelettes and Wheat Toast

Who says you can’t eat breakfast for dinner? Sometimes eating breakfast at night can make a nice little change to your normal routine. Egg white omelettes are very low cal and full of protein. Fry a few up with some toasted wheat bread, and you have a super quick healthy dinner. Top it off with a glass of orange juice for a well rounded dinner option.

Spaghetti and Meatballs

This is a meal that can be good or bad depending on how you fix it. To make it healthy, stock your cupboards with gluten free noodles, and your refrigerator with low fat ground meat. The spaghetti sauce should be whatever you like, but check the sodium and calorie content to ensure that it is healthy. Then, throw it all together at the end of a long day. Spaghetti is delicious, and it only takes about 20 minutes to make.

Chicken and Vegetables

This one might actually take a little planning, but it’s super simple. Before your busy night begins,pop a frozen chicken breast and some vegetables into foil and bake them while you’re gone. It takes about an hour, but it’s easy, quick, and can cook while you’re gone. Use whatever vegetables suit your fancy to make it original to you. Broccoli, bell peppers, onions, and cauliflower are great options for this meal.

You don’t have to ruin your dinner just because you are busy. With a little planning ahead, it is possible to eat healthy even amongst a busy lifestyle. Use these quick and easy recipes to keep yourself healthy and your diet on track.
