For families that are always on the go, eating healthy can be quite the challenge. Fast food is simple and widely available, but it isn’t something you want to indulge in on a regular basis. At the same time, you don’t have hours, or even half and hour, to spend cooking and getting dinner ready. To get around your time constraints, consider these fast and healthy meal ideas for busy nights.
If your evenings are rushed, wraps and burritos are the way to go. You can make them in the morning, and they will still be good in the evening. With burritos, you can also freeze them and toss them in the microwave as needed. Both of these options are as healthy as you wish to make them. Look into spinach tortillas, veggie fillings, and lean meats to keep them healthy.
It may sound odd, but the combination is delicious and will quickly win over your children. Cheddar is a healthier cheese option, and the apples allow you to sneak in some fruit. Opt for healthier bread and skip the white bread to add nutritional value.
You can do this with meats, veggies, and even fruits. Just pop them on the skewer and throw them on the grill. Use an electric grill to keep things simple. If you want to use a grill with a flame, make sure you soak your skewers before using them.
Finally, if you are short on time, opt for crockpot recipes. These recipes are often quite healthy since you do not need oil to cook in the crockpot. As they slowly cook throughout the day, you can come home to a delicious meal rather than spending time at the stove.
