Whether you're looking to stay consistent with your health goals or simply start some good habits with your family, you're going to need a few healthy dinner ideas to get you started. Here, we're sharing our all-time favorite, family-approved meals to prove to you that eating well can still be a delicious and fun (not to mention inexpensive) experience for everyone involved. Looking for kid-friendly dinner ideas? Try one of the simpler, more basic (but still indulgently good) recipes on our list, like a lightened-up macaroni and cheese pasta recipe or a one-pan lemon Parmesan chicken recipe they'll be asking you to make again and again. On the other hand, if you're aiming to impress your holiday guests or simply up your own ante in the kitchen, you'll want to check out some of our more intricate healthy dinner recipes. Cheesy, taco-stuffed zucchini boats prove that low-carb recipes can still be flavorful and nice to look at, while great grilling recipes like the cumin-rubbed hanger steak with smashed minty peas and grilled bread gives classic meat and potato recipes a serious upgrade. We think you'll find our recipes most impressive because many are quick, easy dinner ideas. With healthy slow cooker recipes aplenty and even several one-dish meals, you'll be able to throw together most of these healthy dinner ideas between picking your kids up from school and running to the gym. How's that for easy?
