Summer is traditionally the season for committing to a healthier lifestyle, and that can come in many different forms, whether it means being more active, eating more nutritious foods or simply taking more time for yourself.
Instead of bullying you into healthy eating, or even dieting — which you’ll see a lot of this month — we’d encourage people to just be more aware of the food you’re eating, something that comes naturally when you start cooking your own meals from scratch.
One notion people seem to take from these resolutions is that being “healthy” has to mean that your food is boring, flavourless and generally bland.
This really doesn’t have to be the case, and we’ve carefully chosen quick and easy recipes packed with vegetables, seasoning and spices that will really add some brilliant flavour to your meals.
In order for your healthy eating goals to become sustainable, lasting habits, the most important factor is that you actually enjoy the foods you’re eating — so we’ve picked 31 of the tastiest, healthiest, most convenient meals to get you on the right path for 2021.
