Got dinner planned? If the answer is “no,” we’re here to help. Check out these 5 ideas for dinner in 15 minutes or fewer.

When you’re in the thick of a busy day, it can seem like breaking out a boxed, frozen, or processed meal is the answer to preparing quick and easy dinners. And, yes, those meals can be fast to prep…but what’s the price you pay for that convenience? Added sugar? Artificial sweeteners? Excess sodium? Extra fat?

We’re here to bust the myth that healthy eating is time-consuming or complex. You might be surprised at how simple it is to prepare a delicious meal that nourishes your body with what it needs to support weight loss or maintain a healthy weight. Our recipe ingredients include plenty of whole or minimally-processed foods that offer fiber, lean protein, antioxidants, and other nutrients.

And, because these quick and easy dinners aren’t junked up with stuff the body doesn’t need, the clean, yummy flavors of the food take center stage. No more chemical aftertastes or heavily salted sauces. Just delish recipes that fill you up—and fuel you up.
