Being able to fix dinner fast can take a surprising amount of strategy. After all, if you want to make a quick meal, it usually means that you need to sacrifice a bit of your nutrition. Alternately, if you want to focus on nutrition, you typically need to spend a bit of time in the kitchen.
However, this isn’t always the case. It is completely possible to fix dinner fast and still enjoy a balanced, delicious meal. The key is to know what you’re doing and to focus on making the right meals. If you leave everything until the last second, things likely won’t come together very well. However, if you plan ahead either during a weekly grocery shop or at least before you stop at the supermarket on the way home, you’ll have a considerable advantage.
Use the following meal ideas to help inspire you to fix dinner fast while serving yourself and your family nutrition you can feel proud of.
· Ginger lemon glazed salmon with veggies – Squeeze some fresh lemon into a bowl and add some grated ginger and a touch of olive oil. Take your salmon filet and add it to the bowl, coating it completely. Let it sit as you heat up your broiler and put some whole grain or brown rice on the stove to cook (instant rice can save a ton of time!). Place some foil on a baking sheet and add washed and prepared snap peas and/or snow peas. Once that’s ready and the oven is warm, place your salmon in with the peas pour the extra liquid overtop and wrap up the foil into a little packet. Place the whole thing under the broiler for a few minutes and you’ll have made a complete, nutritious and flavorful meal in 20-30 minutes.
· Lettuce wraps with pork – Instead of getting takeout, slice some pork chops and quickly pan fry them in a touch of olive oil. Place them into a leaf of lettuce with a bit of plum sauce and low-sodium soy sauce. If you’re feeling inspired, add some thin slices of raw carrot and bell pepper and wrap up the lettuce to make the pork and veggies into a bundle. Before the delivery guy could even have climbed into his car, you will already be sitting down to a great quick and nutritious dinner.
