Dinner doesn’t have to be packed full of calories in order to be delicious. In fact, there are thousands of healthy dinner recipes you can make without a whole lot of preparation. Here are a few different recipes that you might want to try out tonight!

1. Spicy Black Bean Wraps


– 1 tbsp bbq sauce
– 1 low carb spinach wrap
– 1 spicy black bean veggie burger
– 1/4 cup corn
– 1 cup steamed broccoli
– Diced tomatoes

Start out by cooking the veggie burger according to package directions. During this time, dice up your tomato and put the broccoli into your steamer or in a pot. From here, heat up your wrap in the microwave for around 10 seconds and then place it on a plate. When the veggie burger is done, cut it up into strips and place it onto the wrap. Then, pour the bbq sauce over it and add in the corn.

To finish this off, add in some of the diced tomatoes and serve the broccoli on the side. This is very filling, it tastes great and it will make you feel like you are eating something that is sinful! You can find all of these ingredients at most grocery stores, so they are very easy to find.

2. Gnocchi Marinara


– Marinara sauce
– Gnocchi
– Steamed broccoli

In order to ensure that this is a low calorie dinner, you need to measure out the servings of the marinara as well as the gnocchi. The calories for these really add up, so only have one serving of each. Cook the gnocchi in boiling water with a little bit of salt. While this is happening you will need to steam the broccoli and heat up the marinara sauce in a microwave-safe container.

When everything is finished, strain the gnocchi and measure out one serving size. Then, put as much broccoli as you want on top and pour marinara sauce over it. The broccoli will add extra nutrients and will fill you up more as well, making this a healthy and tasty dish you can enjoy any day of the week.

3. Pesto Salmon (or chicken) and Veggies

– 1 salmon filet
– 1 chicken filet
– 1 jar pesto sauce
– Carrots (sliced)
– Broccoli
– Cauliflower

Cut out a large square of foil and put a small amount of olive oil on top of it. From here, add in your salmon or chicken (these shouldn’t be frozen) and place the veggies of your choice next to it. Spoon the pesto sauce on top of the salmon and the veggies to finish this off. Now, turn your oven on 350 and wrap the foil with another piece, rolling it at the sides. Bake for as long as is necessary and you will have freshly cooked foods that have minimal calories.

4. Baked Potato with Cheesy Broccoli

– 1 large potato
– Frozen broccoli and cheese

Frozen broccoli and cheese can be found at most grocery stores and is actually pretty low in calories. Cook this in the microwave while you cook your baked potato in the oven. Once everything is finished, cut the potato open and pour the broccoli with cheese inside of it. This is all you have to do to make this low calorie, tasty and nutritional meal!
