The 10 Easiest Healthy Recipes On Our Site

We’re all about attempting a complicated, gourmet, five-course meal on the weekends, but the easiest healthy recipes are the ones you rely on. The ones you come back to over and over on the busiest days. That keep you from having a stress meltdown when you get home at 8:00 p.m. on a Wednesday. That help you stick to your nutrition goals for real.

And these…these are as easy as it gets. Seriously, you should try following them while wearing a blindfold. (Kidding!)

We’re not kidding about the fact that for most of these dishes, you’ll follow the recipe once and then know how to make it without the instructions for the rest of your (healthy kitchen) life.

We chose a fast, protein-rich breakfast, gluten-free bread, veggie sides, a main course, and even a few desserts. So no matter what you’re looking for, there’s a simple solution on this list.

Shh…just don’t tell your chef sister-in-law who works at a Michelin-starred restaurant.
