Sometimes, getting started on the ‘whole food’ journey can be challenging.
One of the great things about all of the super-processed food available at the grocery store is that it presents a wide variety of options.
When it comes to whole foods, however, a lot of people feel clueless.
We’re not all world-class chefs.
And most of us don’t have a ton of experience preparing amazing, healthy meals using strictly whole food ingredients.
With that being said, it’s still totally doable.
And guess what?
You don’t even have to be a world-class chef to pull it off.
In this blog post, you’re going to learn about 4 healthy whole food meal ideas for healthier meals that you can utilize today, with very little to no cooking skills required.
These meals are easy, and anyone can prepare them.
Plus, they’re delicious and healthy.
Let’s dive into it.
1. Chicken, Rice, And Vegetables
This is a super simple recipe.
Get some organic chicken thighs or chicken breasts, and slice them into cubes.
Put some rice on the burner, and get it cooking.
Next, put some butter into your frying pan. Cut up some peppers, onions, garlic, and olives, and add them to the pan.
Sprinkle on some salt, and lightly saute.
Cook the vegetables until they’re almost all the way done. Then, remove them from the burner.
You don’t want to cook them all the way through yet.
Remove them from the heat, then start cooking your chicken.
Pan-fry the chicken in butter until it’s almost all the way done.
You want it to be nice and crispy on the outside, and a little bit moist on the inside—so cook it on high heat.
Then, add the vegetables.
Let the whole thing cook for just a little bit while gently stirring.
Then, dish it up alongside a heaping pile of rice.
It’s easy and delicious.
2. Steak And Potatoes
A lot of people don’t see steak and potatoes as being a healthy meal.
But the truth is that it’s actually quite nutritious.
Simply pan-fry or grill a premium steak to the desired level.
Put some potatoes to boil in water, mix in some butter, then mash them up.
If you really want to be healthy, you could substitute sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes.
Next, put a vegetable on to cook along with it. Green beans or corn are a couple of preferred ideas.
Serve with butter and salt, and make some gravy out of the drippings from the steak.
You really can’t go wrong with this recipe.
3. Ground Beef Stir Fry
This is one of those ‘comfort food’ ideas for something to throw together late at night, when you don’t have a lot of time, energy, or creativity left.
To start, put some ground beef in your pan, and start frying it.
Chop up and add vegetables as desired.
You can add some onions, some peppers, some corn, and even some garbanzo beans.
For best results, chop up the vegetables small so that they’re able to cook thoroughly and quickly, to be done by the time the hamburger is done.
Cook everything up together, and serve it in a bowl.
Top with a bit of shredded cheese and salt.
4. Healthy Fish And Chips
Who doesn’t love fish and chips?
The only downside to this meal, typically, is that the fish is deep fried as well as the potatoes.
So in this healthy version, you’re not going to deep fry anything.
Instead, pan-fry your favorite type of fish fillet.
You could choose salmon, tilapia, or whatever else you may prefer.
You’re also going to want to chop up some sweet potatoes and regular potatoes into a french-fry type shape, and pan-fry them in butter.
Don’t overcook the fries—just cook them to the point where they’re nice, soft, and edible.
On the side, serve it up with some homemade coleslaw.
This is one of those delicious and nutritious meals that you won’t be able to get enough of!
