I’m a firm believer that making healthy food that tastes delicious shouldn’t require a lot of effort or cleaning. In my cookbook, there’s a whole chapter devoted to it called “Quick and Easy Meals”. I’ve even created a 4 Meals 1 Prep series and an assortment of freezer burritos to help make healthy eating as easy as possible. Meet your new favorite healthy weeknight dinners that double as gluten free dairy free meal prep ideas. The recipes in this round-up will be on the table in 30 minutes or less!

Every recipe I listed below is loaded with nutritious, veggies, plant based protein, fiber and healthy fats to keep your blood sugar stable every day. And if you’re wondering how keeping your glucose curves flat will help with hormone balance, weight loss, energy, and glowing skin, listen to this episode of The Healthier Together Podcast! These recipes are fast, easy, and flavorful. They’re also flexible to your dietary needs. You’ll find plenty of plant based recipes here that use chickpeas instead of animal protein for vegans and almond flour tortillas in place of flour tortillas for gluten free folks.

These healthy 30 minute meals serve two, so feel free to double them for your whole family or for a healthy make-ahead lunch!
