24 Healthy 30 Minute Meals

A ton of ideas for healthy 30 minute meals: get dinner on the table easily with these recipes!  Lots of stir fries, pastas and salads.

In honor of my 30 Minute Dinner CookBook, I’ve dubbed this week “30 Minute Dinner Week”, and am sharing a TON of weeknight dinner inspiration for us.

Today is the last day…and I’m finishing off with a round-up! I’ve taken most of the summer off from doing these round-ups and am excited to get going with them again.  I always get a ton of inspiration from these round-ups and hope that you do too!

So this is actually my second round-up of healthy 30 minute meals.   The first round-up, which is over here, was so popular and has been shared over 270,000 times…isn’t that crazy?  Since then I’ve added a ton of new 30 minute dinner recipes to my site and thought it was time to do another round-up!

To start off the post I’m sharing some tips to get dinner on your table in under 30 minutes:

  • Have a plan.  Having a plan means no last-minute scouring the internet, and also means that you’ll have all the ingredients you need on hand.
  • Prep meal components ahead.  Maybe this means cooking a batch of rice or some chicken breasts on Sunday or mixing together a sauce or vinaigrette.  A tiny bit of effort ahead makes a HUGE difference at 5pm!
  • Stir fries, pastas and big salads are your friends.  This all-in-one type of meals mean you don’t have to spend a bunch of time prepping side dishes.  (All of the meals below are ‘all-in-one’ dinner recipes!)
  • Shortcuts are great!  Using bottled stir fry sauce or pre-cooked rotisserie chicken is an awesome way to cut out some prep time.

What is your favorite tip to get dinner on the table on week-nights?  I’d love to hear!
