This year, I’ve made it a goal of mine to get my foot in the kitchen and cook more often—and so far, it’s been going pretty well. It’s helped me discover new favorites and even try foods I never liked before. As convenient as it sounds, getting takeout isn’t always the best option. I’ve done my research and found alternatives to making a meal healthier while still tasting delicious at the end:
- Bake instead of fry.
- Use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.
- Substitute turkey or even Beyond Meat products for beef.
- Use whole grain ingredients for the carbs; rice, pasta, bread, etc.
In addition, I have found some healthy, delicious alternatives to a classic favorite and something you’d be sure to love. So if you’re like me and are trying to cook more this year, check out these 20 delicious recipes to make for dinner this week:
11. Pepper Steak
13. Coconut Shrimp
15. Pasta Primavera
