Main Dishes

Main dishes, such as lunch or dinner, constitute some of the largest meals of the day. It is therefore crucial to focus on their composition to ensure we provide our bodies with the necessary nutrients. The foundation of every main course should be proteins, which can come in the form of fish, meat, or plant-based alternatives such as tofu, tempeh, seitan. Complex carbohydrates should also be included, which are most often found in side dishes such as pasta, couscous, quinoa, rice, or other grains, as well as potatoes. Additionally, there are sources of fats, which are naturally part of animal proteins. However, they can also be found in oil, ghee, nuts, or nut butters. Completing your meal with a serving of vegetables will make the result truly perfect.

What healthy lunches and dinners to prepare?

If you’re a fan of meat, you can try baked chicken breasts, roasted thighs, chicken enchiladas, or bake the meat together with pasta. For an Asian twist, consider preparing chicken with turmeric and coconut milk or with quinoa. Excellent choices also include chicken breasts in orange sauce, Indian curries with shredded meat, or pad thai. 

Italian cuisine enthusiasts can enjoy options such as Bolognese sauce, which can even be vegan, or a recipe for lasagna. Of course, there’s also a guide for making amazing pizza and other pasta delights. Lastly, we also haven’t forgotten about those who savour Mexican flavours. They can try their hand at a classic like tacos.
