Holiday season when you’re short on energy and time is the perfect opportunity to whip up one of these healthy 5 ingredient dinners.
As we head into the holidays the more Mr. Mike and I can have easy, healthy dinners on hand, the less opportunity we have to snack on junk food or hit our favorite Mexican restaurant when holiday obligations take over our schedules.
Eggs are a terrific source of protein and because they take minutes to cook, they work well for five ingredient dinners – not to mention breakfasts, brunches, and lunches.
Seafood is another quick cooking protein with shrimp topping the list of favorites in our house. I buy bags of flash frozen shrimp at Costco, so there’s always a protein-packed meal minutes away.
Since we’re always being told by the latest nutrition information that we need to eat seafoods with lots of healthy fats, salmon is a must-add to this 5 ingredient dinner roundup.
Mr. Mike likes his beef and mushrooms, so a few steaks in the freezer gets this meal on the table quickly.
Beef might be Mike’s love for dinner, but chicken is my go-to for any meal. I’ll even eat it for breakfast!
I find turkey to be popular with everyone, especially kids, so I’ve added turkey recipes to this list of five ingredient dinners, though you can easily swap out the turkey for chicken if your family prefers.
If you’re wanting a meat-free Monday meal, these mushrooms pizzas are completely delicious and the portobello mushrooms have a meat-like taste and texture to keep meat lovers happy too.
I’ve been posting 5 ingredient recipes for many months now and love the challenge of making a flavor-packed meal with minimal ingredients. Be sure and head on over to my recipe collection of five ingredient recipes where you can find even more healthy meals to choose from.
