Want some ideas for dinner that include a few more veggies and fruits??  Sometimes getting out of your dinner ruts lets you try new things and actually make things a bit healthier than normal.

Here are 5 easy meals that all have a healthy twist. Cauliflower pizza, bananas in your pancakes…  It’s fun to use or even come up with recipes that are healthy and delicious, but different from the typical dinner meals we often like to make.

Note: These prices are based off of averages and are subject to change weekly.

5 Healthy Meals with a Twist

Lemon Butter Fish

This is more a seasoning recipe than a particular meal.  Adding in more fish is one of the best ways to eat healthier!  This recipe works for any white fish (cod, halibut, mahi etc.) and uses things you probably have on hand.

To save money grab frozen fish fillets when they are on sale.

Banana Oat Blender Pancakes

Adding in fresh fruit and whole rolled oats, you are bringing pancakes up a level and definitely adding more fiber and nutrients to the normal box mix!

Rolled Oats — $2.49
Milk — $3
Banana —  55¢ lb

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

It’s super easy to make your own cauliflower crust pizza.  You’ll need a food processor or blender, but the machine does all the work!  Cut the carbs and enjoy a delicious comfort food without the guilt.

Chicken Breast —$1.99-$2.99 lb
Barbecue Sauce —$1

Slow Cooker Chicken Marrakesh

Focusing on healthier options is a great time to try out recipes from the middle east and mediterranean.  Generally their recipes are much healthier but kick up the flavor a thousand times more!! This is a favorite with our crew and isn’t overly spicy for the kids.

Onion — $2.99/3 lb
Carrots — $1.50/lb
Garbanzo Beans — $1
Chicken Breast —$1.99-$2.99 lb

Penne With Balsamic Chicken and Roasted Asparagus

Pasta doesn’t have to off your healthy list.  Add in some high fiber veggies or even pick higher fiber pasta to up the game a bit.

Asparagus — $2.99/lb
Chicken Breast —$1.99-$2.99 lb
