We’ve all been there at some point: that box of processed food looks so easy, so tempting—you just need to add meat! It’s simple to prepare a frozen dinner, but your waistline will pay for it. Processed meals contain ingredients that can sink the most dedicated woman’s healthy weight goals. Even packaged meals labeled “healthy” or “low-fat” possess high levels of sodium, artificial sweeteners, and unpronounceable ingredients.

From one-pot dinners to slow cooker meals, the recipes below provide no-hassle options that are both delicious and healthy. You’ll find clean-eating recipes rich in the antioxidants, fiber, and protein you (and your loved ones) need to stay healthy. Since these chicken dinner recipes aren’t loaded down with processed ingredients, the clean, natural flavors of the food shine through—no chemical aftertastes or heavily salted sauces.

    What is the healthiest cheese to use, I have been seeing a lot of Recipes calling for Fresh Parmesan Cheese and some Mozzarella Cheese….is their a healthy benefit for these cheeses?

    • Gale Compton  May 28, 2016

      Carolyn, The cheese used typically depends on the recipe. We also use other cheeses, i.e. cheddar, ricotta, feta, etc..
      When possible I like to use Feta. 🙂
