11 Healthy Dinner Recipes You Wouldn’t Think Were Healthy

11 Healthy Dinner Recipes You Wouldn’t Think Were Healthy

Recipe Screens landscape Shakshuka

Healthy dinners that don't compromise on taste. Isn't that everything we could ever wish for? Indeed. And when a dish strikes that perfect balance of nutritious and delicious, it quickly moves up the roster in becoming a weekly staple.

But, how do new dinner recipes creep up the ladder? Particularly when we all become so accustomed to the same old grocery shop, and the same old ingredients in our pantries and fridges. It's seldom time to branch out a little – and flex some kitchen creativity in whipping up some new dinner to recipes that satisfy.

But there's a catch. It's not easy pushing the envelope and crafting healthy dinners your family won't object to eating. Because as much as we all bang on about nutrition, no one's a fan of having to source too many exotic ingredients. And further to that, no one's a fan of having your family refuse the meal you've prepared because it's too far outside their comfort zone.

Our list of 11 healthy dinners focuses on familiar and family-friendly favourites built with nourishing, natural food ingredients. And they all come together delicately balancing flavour with an excitement that will have everyone – from partner to picky toddler – asking you, "when are we eating this again". Enjoy!
