As promised I wanted to do another recipe post including some simple yet healthy dinners which aren’t the usual boiled chicken & vegetables, because lets be honest ‘ain’t nobody got time for that!’. If you haven’t seen my previous ones you can check them out here Snacks for Days and Healthy Meals Inspo.
I always find people (my old self included) find it hard to stick to their new healthy lifestyle/diet because they get bored of the plain healthy dinners they have to choose from, now let me tell you this doesn’t have to be the case!
There are so many healthy recipes out there that are packed full of flavor and won’t leave you craving for the bad stuff as soon as you swallow down that last bite!
Check out a couple of my favorite healthy dinners!
