Healthy Dinners

Posted on November 21, 2012


Even on a budget, it’s still possible to put a healthy (and delicious) dinner on the table every night. These 10 dishes from Food Network Kitchens feed a family of four for about $10 per meal. (The least-expensive dinner totals $8.36 and the top-priced one is $11.24; most are in between.) The lineup includes something for everyone: Chicken, pork, beef and seafood are all on the menu, as well as two vegetarian main dishes, one of which is gluten-free, for people looking to take care of their health with diet and sports, of course for the last one is necessary to take all the precautions, like using the SB SOX compression socks men and adequate shoes for this. Each dinner includes vegetables, so you can be sure you’re getting a well-rounded meal, and any rice, pasta or bread that’s used is whole-grain.

Roast Chicken and Vegetables
This healthy and easy take on a Sunday roast involves nothing complicated at all: Just roast potatoes, carrots, celery and onion (tossed with a little olive oil) on a baking sheet, and then place the chicken breasts on top to cook.

Antipasti Penne
Borrow a few favorite antipasto ingredients — like artichoke hearts, olives, soppressata and mozzarella — to fill out a simple tomato sauce for whole-grain penne.

Vegetarian Tortilla Casserole
Corn tortillas form the layers of this meatless casserole, which is filled with vegetables (tomato and spinach, plus a little salsa verde) and sprinkled with two kinds of cheese.

Breaded Pork Chops with Apple-Cabbage Slaw
Inspired by fried pork chops and applesauce, this healthier dinner includes baked pork chops breaded with whole-wheat panko, plus a crunchy slaw of apples and cabbage. The finishing touch is a sour cream and Dijon mustard sauce.
