5 Healthy Meal ideas

Stuck for what to make for dinner? Check out my five healthy meal ideas, perfect for those mid-week dinners.

Being a vegetarian, I have had to be very experimental to find meals that are classed as ‘clean’, are easy to make and are nutritionally balanced.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with the term ‘clean eating’, it is a term used to describe eating foods that are cooked from fresh, have no preservative or additives and are as close to their original form as possible. By eating this way, it means that you are getting lots of healthy, nutritionally dense foods while refraining from eating unhealthy, processed foods.

By now, you are either thinking that this sounds like a logical and great idea OR  you are thinking that it sounds too complicated, difficult and maybe even boring to do, so have a look below at the my ‘5 healthy meal ideas’  to have a try at. Whether you are a long-time clean eater in need of some new ideas, or a newbie to it all and don’t know where to start, you are sure to find a meal to suit you.
