My favorite healthy dinner ideas are all about getting the most out of nutritious heavy-hitting ingredients. At the end of a long weekday, I want a healthy meal that I can look forward to—not one that will make me feel crappy or underfed by the next morning. That’s why I lean on weeknight meals like saucy chana masala with protein-packed chickpeas, pineapple salsa–dressed seared salmon tacos that won’t leave me missing the deep fryer, and cold sesame noodles with bright, fresh noodles blanketed in an umami-packed tahini sauce. Rather than depriving your body of what it needs, all of these healthy recipes for dinner will leave you full and satisfied, ready for whatever tomorrow could possibly throw at you.
