How To Make A Quick & Balanced Dinner Plate

Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend and had some time to enjoy some serious R&R!

In today’s post I want to share how I make dinner 90% of the time. Usually during the week, by the time I get home from work, I am:

1. Hungry
2. Tired
3. Lazy

All 3 of those things mean that I reaaalllyyyyy don’t want to be spending a lot of time cooking dinner. I want something that is quick but still healthy!

Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy cooking fancy recipes but it just isn’t realistic for me to do this every night! So here is how I usually plan my dinners:

1. Pick a protein source (eggs, chicken, steak, beef, etc)

2. Pick my favourite vegetables (lots of greens)

3. Pick a complex carbohydrate (sweet potato, rice, bread, etc)

4. Add in a healthy fat source if the above does not include one. For an example, red meat already contains a fat source, if I am having a salad, the dressing is a fat source, etc

I find that keeping my meals balanced with protein, carbs and fats, really helps fill me up and keep me satiated!

What is your favourite way to plan dinners?
