It can be easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to making healthy dinners and end up making the same thing again and again. After a long day it can be hard to come up with different dinner ideas…..
When you are stuck in a dinner rut everyone in the family (particularly kids) can get very tired of eating the same dinners week in and week out. I feel this is particularly true for families with food allergies and intolerances – it is easy to feel like you don’t have many options and to cook the same dinners all the time.
Below I have put together a selection of dinner recipes that I hope will help you add some more variety back into your week. These are some of of my favourite clean eating dinner recipes from myself and fellow food bloggers that are family friendly and easy to make.
All of these healthy dinner recipes are perfect for busy weeknights and most of them are ready in 30 minutes or less!

Clean Eating Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes
Colourful, tasty and healthy vegan and vegetarian clean eating dinner recipes. Many people are trying to eat a little less meat these days. Whether you are looking to reduce your meat intake for environmental reasons or just looking for options for Meatless Mondays for your family then you will find some tasty options below.
One thing I love about vegan food is that you get very creative in the kitchen using ingredients you previously would not of thought of using.
The end result can be a delicious dinner that even your most avid meat eater will enjoy. You also get to really pack in those veggies giving you a nutrient dense plant based meal full of phytonutrients and antioxidants.

Clean Eating Salad Recipes
I do love a good salad! For me it always has to have fresh crunchy vegetables, good quality protein and to be topped off by a delicious dressing.
Salads don’t need to be boring – if you make them colourful with different textures (such as topping them off with fresh herbs or nuts and seeds) and a full flavoured dressing – they can easily be a filling and satisfying dinner.
If you have young children that don’t enjoy eating salads I find making them a deconstructed version of your salad can work well.
For example……Arrange the same ingredients from the salad on their plate but don’t mix it up like you would for you. Also don’t spoon it out of the salad bowl where it is all mixed up.
While chopping the vegetables for your salad keep a small portion aside and pop them on your childs plate so the veggies and protein are on the plate in small but separate groups and not mixed together.
Give your children some dips such as hummus or pesto to dip veggie bits from the salad into. Small children often enjoy eating a plate full of colourful looking “bits and pieces” to eat – they are still getting the same nutrition but it helps it look more fun.
The Gado Gado Indonesian Salad below is a fun way to get children eating lots of different vegetables, the peanut dipping sauce really makes it! If you child can’t eat peanuts then almond butter can work well.
