Delicious meals don’t have to be calorific, which is why we have put together a list of fine-dining favourites which are also healthy choices too - so you don’t have to feel bad for eating them!
Take a look at our tasty favourites below!
Roasted Tomatoes, Peppers, Thyme & Feta Gnocchi
Starting with an Italian dish, Gnocchi can be a very healthy dish by infusing it with delicious vegetables like tomatoes and peppers, adding a touch of thyme also gives the dish a gorgeous taste. You can now even get gluten-free Gnocchi pasta in most supermarkets, which will make the dish suitable for those with a gluten-free diet.
Mediterranean Shakshuka Eggs
Eggs are a great source of protein, so this tantalising dish is a great way to boost your protein - especially if you’re a vegetarian! Shakshuka eggs are a delicious Mediterranean dish and you can make it even healthier by serving with spinach. This meal is perfect to have for lunch or dinner, you will love it so much that you will probably want it for every meal!
Sesame Butterfly Chicken
Sesame seeds add a tasty crunch to this protein-based dish which infuses delicious Chinese satay sauces. This classic dish can also be a great way to add some vitamin C if you add some sugar snap peas and asparagus.
Salmon, Chilli & Rocket Fishcakes
A spicy take on a classic dish, these fishcakes are a perfect way to add some fibre with the rocket but you also get a good source of protein, Omega-3 and Vitamin-B from the salmon. This meal is simple yet comforting and infuses so many delicious flavours. You could even serve this with your favourite salad to get extra greens in.
Italian Avocado Salad
A simple classic which can be made for lunch or dinner, an avocado salad is a perfect way of getting some nutrients into your meal whilst making sure you stay full. To add an extra bit of protein you could serve it with some grilled chicken or fish. Avocado is packed to the brim with key vitamins such as Vitamin-B, Vitamin-K and Omega-3, so you can’t go wrong with this dish. Drizzle some lemon juice over to help digest the fats from the avocado.
