3 Healthy Meals in 30 Minutes or Less
All of these recipes make 4 servings, so they’re great for the family or for leftovers.
Meal #1. Grilled Salmon with Citrus Salsa – Salmon is always a great choice when it comes to eating healthy. It’s high in lean protein and contains healthy omega-3 fatty acids to boost your metabolism. Plus, it takes no more than 20 minutes to cook.
Here’s what you need:
- 4 medium-sized salmon filets
- 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
- 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 orange, peeled and chopped
- 1/3 cup of red onion, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh oregano
- 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
- ½ cup of chopped olives
Here’s what to do: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees (F). Place your salmon filets on a baking sheet lined with tin foil or parchment paper and brush lightly with 1 teaspoon of olive oil, adding salt and pepper as desired. While the oven is heating, grab a bowl and mix together all remaining ingredients to make your salsa. Place in the fridge while you cook the salmon for 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven, top with salsa, and serve with a side of rice and veggies.
Meal #2. Beef and Broccoli Rice Bowl – For all the meat lovers out there, this one is super healthy and quick. Broccoli is one of the best veggies you can include in your healthy eating plan, and it’s great for supporting a healthy immune system. Plus you’ve got some great protein in the beef and lots of fiber in the brown rice.
