Open-Faced Turkey Sandwich

It doesn’t get easier than this. In less than 30-minutes, you’ll have a healthy dinner that serves 4. Not to mention, it packs over 30 grams of protein. This is the best way to use any turkey leftovers you may have from office potlucks, family dinners, and other festivities.

One Pan Healthy Sausage & Veggies

When it comes to Friday night dinner, you can guarantee my sheet pan is out. When you have a healthy recipe like this one, all you need is a few minutes of prep time, and then off to the oven, it goes. Set the timer and wait for your dinner to be ready. Swap the sausages for turkey, chicken, or vegan sausages if you prefer.

4-Ingredient Pesto Chicken Bake

Whenever I want to prepare an impressive meal, I take out my homemade or store-bought pesto jar.

Just don’t spill your secret, because this recipe is as easy as it gets.

Delicious Spicy Tuna Avocado Wrap with shredded carrots

Spicy Tuna Avocado Wrap

A single wrap serving has only 295 calories and 18 grams of protein. A tuna wrap is the easiest recipe you can try on a Friday night. It requires virtually no cooking, almost all of it is assembling the wrap. Add more toppings to the inside if you want to customize your wrap. My favorite pairing with tuna is black olives, for example.
