5 Healthy Evening Meals

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

When it comes to meal planning, it can be all too easy to get stuck in the same routine - whether it’s pasta bolognese, fajitas or fish and chips, however - mid-week evening meals don’t have to be boring! There are so many delicious and healthy balanced recipes that are equally as simple to make and won’t take up all your hours in the evening preparing. 

As a rule of thumb (the majority of the time!) it’s advised to ensure you’re always including a good proportion of vegetables (⅓ of the plate), a source of lean protein such as chicken, turkey, fish, beans, lentils or eggs (⅓ of the plate) and a portion of carbohydrates for energy. Try to opt for a higher fibre choice such as wholewheat pasta or wholegrain rice the majority of the time which will provide a slower release of energy, helping to regulate your blood glucose levels and prevent them from rising too high after a meal. 

The more variety you can get within your diet, the better - especially for your gut health. Try to ensure you have plenty of different colours with your vegetables, all of which provide a unique set of nutrients that we need for good health. These recipes also offer a variety of choices to suit your dietary preferences with two vegan options, two meat and one fish but they can of course be swapped and changed to suit you.
