We've got some delicious sheet pan dinners which are both easy and healthy. This meal photographed here is an easy chicken recipe with chickpeas, peppers and harissa spices.
Here are some healthy ways to satisfy those snack cravings in between meals..
Apples & Nut Butter
This childhood classic snack is pretty much great anytime, and quite wholesome on top of that!
If it hasn't been slathered in butter and salt, popcorn is a perfectly nutritious snack!
Hummus & Veggies
You can never go wrong with a veggie platter and some hummus.
Along with fruits, dark chocolate and more, there are plenty of sweet snacks you can have that are still beneficial.
Nut Butter-Stuffed Dates
The rich, sweet flavor of a date pairs perfectly with a salty nut butter is an excellent combination.
70% Dark Chocolate
We're not anti-chocolate here in the slightest, but it's good to know that dark actually has some beneficial minerals in it like zinc, magnesium and iron.
Fresh Pineapple with Cashews
You heard us right, this is a pretty stellar combination and not complicated to put together as long as you know how to slice a pineapple.
