What's for Dinner????


I need some new ideas for healthy dinners. Easy to make. I prefer to be able to use my air fryer....

Also open to recipes for quick breakfasts and things easy to heat up at the office for lunch!

Tonight is chicken enchaladas.

Easy make:

Low carb wraps
rotisserie chicken schredded up w/no skin
red sauce
cheese
black beans
tomatoes
sour cream (not for me)

Wrap it all up, cover w/red sauce and cheese, air fry on about 365 until all warm and melty. Top with sour cream if desired.

Will serve with a side of Spanish rice (also not for me).

I am trying to cut back on carbs, so I can do it easily w/this recipe and still keep the kids happy.

Do you do Pinterest? You can find any kind of recipe you want. That is my go to for recipes. I've even made some of them.

Hi hopeful,

That sounds wonderful!

I like making huevos rancheros with homemade corn tortillas. Simple, easy, yummy.

Tonight I did a rustic baked potato huevos rancheros, ingredients from top to bottom:

Parmesan cheese (substituted for cotija)
Salsa
Egg (basted using liquid coconut oil)
Jalapeno refried beans (I often use black beans for more texture)
RealSalt (my go-to mineral salt)
Idaho russet potato -- baked slow in the oven along with extra ones for pup while we went on a long hike around the property.

I don't pinterest but I guess I should. I am tired of all social media so I have resisted LOL.

Mango...that looks AMAZING!!!! Thank you for sharing, I am going to give that a try.

My mom, dd, and I all went to church then I came home and made the enchaladas. They were very good. I had premade the chicken so I just had to schred it up and mix it all together. Super easy.

I think I am going to start doing that, making several days worth of chicken in the crock pot and just have it on hand for recipes. My kids mostly want chicken as their protein if we use meat.

So today I am into work and there were coconut cupcakes, which are one of my favorites. I am sitting here with a lot of remorse because I ate one. I am also going to lunch with a bunch of people, I will make healthy choices there. Then....my family are coming over so we can all go out to dinner. Ughhh.....

I will have to redeem myself over the weekend. I need to mow my grass, so that should help!

One of my favorite things about Pinterest is that you don't have to interact with other people. Just enter what you are looking for (healthy air fryer recipes, for example) then peruse the results. Easy peasy.

Hopeful, I'm a big "Cooking Light" fan and this is one of my favorites. The recipe serves 2, but it's easy to double if need be. I haven't done it in my air fryer oven yet, but I bet it would turn out great! (Don't you just love the air fryer?!?)

Oven Fried Chicken Thighs with Buttermilk Mustard Sauce

Yield 2 servings (serving size: 2 thighs and 2 tablespoons sauce)
May 2001
RECIPE BY COOKING LIGHT

Preheating the baking sheet helps to crisp the chicken on the bottom. Serve with mashed potatoes.

Ingredients
1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1 1/2 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan cheese
4 (6-ounce) chicken thighs, skinned
Cooking spray

Step 1
Preheat oven to 425.

Step 2
Combine the first 6 ingredients in a small microwave-safe bowl. Spoon 3 tablespoons buttermilk mixture into a shallow bowl; reserve remaining mixture.

Step 3
Combine the breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl. Dip chicken in 3 tablespoons buttermilk mixture; dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Chill 15 minutes. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray, and place in oven for 5 minutes.

Step 4
Place the chicken on baking sheet. Bake at 425 for 24 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 180, turning chicken after 12 minutes. Microwave reserved buttermilk mixture at high for 20 seconds or until warm. Drizzle the sauce over chicken.

Tomorrow night will be mung bean curry with quinoa in my house, from my detox recipe book.
My partner and step kids have to put up with my healthy cooking lol they tend to like it most of the time but I'm sure they would like more stodgy meat and pasta meals sometimes..
Last night I made cauliflower fritters made with a chickpea flour batter and a coriander yoghurt sauce..
I have plenty of great recipes.

One of my favorite, healthy go-to meals is basically a casserole, loaded with flavor. Two different ways to prepare: Either brown chicken and cook quinoa first and shorten baking time or just cut it up, mix it all together with uncooked quinoa and bake longer.

At least 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in bite size chunks
1 cup quinoa (uncooked volume) and appropriate amount of chicken broth if not pre-cooking
1 large sweet onion
1 green pepper
15 oz can low sodium black beans
7 oz can diced green chiles
28 oz can of green enchilada sauce
15 oz can low sodium corn
cumin and chili powder to taste (honestly I never measure, I just know what I like and that's a lot of cumin for me)
top with shredded mexican cheese

350, 30 minutes will do if chicken is browned and quinoa cooked. If not, 1 hour to 1 hr 15 minutes until the quinoa is set. Obviously broil for a couple minutes if you like your cheese browned.

Do you always count the calories of your food?
