When we talk about maintaining a healthy and, above all, sustainable eating style, there are certain obstacles that impede us from sticking to this lifestyle. We all want to eat well, but not all of us are specialists in the kitchen, and creativity often does not flow as we would like. For me and for many people, what we find most difficult when it comes to cooking are dinners, right? That’s when we don’t know what to eat that satisfies us but at the same time provokes us to eat. So I want to share 3 healthy and easy recipes to prepare at home in less than 20 minutes.
Turkey lettuce wraps
This dinner will make you feel satisfied since the main macro-nutrient is protein. Plus it will give you the feeling of eating Mexican tacos.
1¼ lb. lean ground turkey, lean and fat-free
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
4 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons roasted red chili paste
Pinch of salt
12 lettuce leaves
How to prepare:
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey, garlic, and ginger to skillet and cook for about 6 minutes or until turkey is golden brown. Stir to crumble.
Combine the turkey mixture and onions in a large bowl, stirring well, and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, and roasted red chili and drizzle over the turkey mixture. Stir to coat thoroughly.
Add about ¼ cup of the turkey mixture to each lettuce leaf, serve and enjoy.
2. Salmon Ceviche
This is a dinner high in protein and good fats, also delicious and very fresh.
500 grams of fresh salmon
3/4 cup lemon juice
1 red onion
2 garlic cloves
1 green chili bell pepper
1/2 unit red bell pepper
2 to 3 tablespoons cilantro
Salt to taste
How to prepare:
Clean the salmon, remove the skin if it has it.
Cut the salmon into small squares and place in a bowl.
Add the lime juice, onion chopped in small squares or julienne (feather), finely chopped garlic, chili bell pepper in small squares, and chopped cilantro.
Mix everything very well and season with salt. Leave to marinate for about 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
You can serve it over lettuce leaves, a green salad, or if you have a portion of carbs you can eat it with a cracker reduced in fat and salt.
3. Zucchini Soup
I love vegetable creams, they are low in calories and light for the evening.
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 large onion, chopped.
1 kg / 2 lb zucchini , sliced.
3 cups / 750 ml of vegetable or chicken broth, preferably reduced in salt, it is optional if not, you can add more water.
1 cup / 250 ml of water
1 cup / 250 ml of vegetable milk of your choice.
Salt and spices to taste.
How to prepare:
Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onions, and cook for 3 – 4 minutes until lightly browned.
Add the zucchini, broth (optional), and water. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to medium.
Cook for 15 minutes or until the zucchini is very soft.
Use a blender until smooth.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with a teaspoon of grated Parmesan cheese or a sprinkle of feta cheese. If you have not met your protein requirements for the day, you can accompany the soup with a serving of grilled salmon or chicken.
As you can see, you don’t have to be an expert in the kitchen, you just have to understand our requirements and look for recipes that we like and are simple. I recommend pairing any of these dishes with lemon water with stevia and it will have the perfect touch. Tag me on Instagram if you make any of them!
