Healthy Weekly Dinner Meal Plan: New Dinner Recipes for a Midwinter Lift
5 easy recipes for a week of fast and healthy dinners.
As a big fan of seasonal eating, I find February rather challenging. Sure, winter’s a season, but by this point, I need fresh recipes to inject some excitement into our dinners and rouse my brain from hibernation. The five recipes in this dinner plan teach me about new foods and different ways to use familiar ingredients for healthier results. Taking a new recipe for a spin gives me something to look forward to. On Monday, it’s a recipe that turns food in my pantry into black bean croquettes—I wouldn’t have thought of that. On Tuesday, you can learn how to cut 22 grams of fat (compared with a typical version) with our take on Chicken Piccata. Then on Wednesday, get familiar with Caldo Tlalpeño, a garlicky Mexican soup often served across the border in El Paso, Texas, but easy to replicate in just 40 minutes wherever your kitchen may be. On Friday night, discover how spicy chorizo makes mild cod sing.
