Under 20-Minute Healthy Dinners
Vegetable Stir-Fry: Grab your favorite frozen and/or fresh veggies and steam them with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season to taste or add teriyaki sauce for added taste. If you like meat, add chicken.
Spinach, Mozzarella and Tomato Panini: Sounds like a gourtmet sandwich right? Well, it kind of is and it doesn’t take much for you to make it in the comfort of your own home. Choose whole wheat bread instead of white bread. You can cook your spinach prior or use fresh spinach leaves. Cut a think slice of mozzarella, and two to three pieces of tomato. Layer it all on two pieces of bread lightly drizzled with olive oil and a spread if you so choose. Place on a griddle or in a frying pan for 5-10 minutes on each side or until cheese is completely melted. Pair with a fresh tossed salad.
Grilled Shrimp Greek Salad: All you need is grilled shrimp, romaine lettuce, lemon juice, tomato, feta cheese, and red onion. Choose your favorite dressing or make your own with lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, and fresh garlic.
Jerk Salmon Salad: Using (dry) jerk seasoning, season your salmon and place it in the oven to bake for 15 minutes. While it’s baking and getting tender, prep your salad with carrots, romaine lettuce, tomato, red onion, and feta cheese. Once your salmon is done, piece it and mix into the salad. Top with your favorite dressing and spicy jerk sauce is a must! Hint: French is an awesome dressing with this salad!
Spinach Lasagna: Cook spinach leaves with tomato. Warm spaghetti sauce adding onion and garlic. Fold cooked spinach with cottage cheese. Layer lasagna shells with tomato sauce, then spinach and cottage cheese mixture. Top off the final layer with reduced fat shredded cheeses and place in oven until cheese is melted.
