We all want to eat healthy but don’t have the time or maybe the patience to do so. Well I’m here to change that. With these three easy recipes, you’ll have no problems eating healthier. I’ll provide you with a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner recipe that you’ll truly enjoy.
For breakfast, we’re going to have a delicious brown rice bowl.
½ cup of brown rice
6 cups of water
4 tablespoons of egg whites
½ cup of red peppers (any pepper will do)
¾ cup of broccoli or any vegetable of choice
4oz of turkey sausage
1 tablespoon of olive oil or vegetable oil
In a medium pot bring 6 cups of water to a boil. Next add your brown rice and let cook for 30-40 minutes or until tender. In a large skillet heat oil and add peppers, broccoli, and turkey sausage. When everything has thoroughly cooked through, add egg whites. Let the egg whites cook, it shouldn’t take long, and turn off heat. In a bowl, combine brown rice and the rest of your ingredients, stir and enjoy. You now have a healthy, filling breakfast that’s less than 400 calories.
For lunch, we’ll make a simple tuna salad.
1 can of tuna (preferably in water not oil)
2 tablespoon of low fat Miracle Whip
1 boiled egg
1 tablespoon of sweet pickle relish
½ teaspoon of mustard
¼ cup of chopped onions (optional)
A pinch of salt and pepper
Open can of tuna and drain water completely. In a bowl, combine the tuna and the rest of your ingredients. Refrigerate for 10-20 minutes or enjoy as is. I personally like to enjoy this tuna salad in a whole wheat pita pocket or with whole wheat crackers. Enjoy it the way you like.
For dinner, we’re going to have one of my favorites: no pasta chicken alfredo.
1 cup of cauliflower
½ cup of chopped broccoli
4 cups of water
1 cup of diced chicken
¾ cup of low fat/light alfredo sauce (any brand will do)
There are two ways you can go about preparing this meal. In a medium pot bring 4 cups of water to a boil and add cauliflower and broccoli. Cook until tender, drain and set to the side. In a sauce pot, combine alfredo sauce and chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes. When sauce is done, pour over cauliflower and broccoli and mix well. Another way to make this is to sauté your cauliflower and broccoli in a skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil or vegetable oil. Make the sauce the same way and just combine and enjoy. This alternative to regular chicken alfredo has nearly ¼ the carbs and calories in 1 cup, making it very good for you.
