Easy and Healthy Meals
We often hear that a healthy lifestyle invariably leads to a happy life. Healthy eating does not always denote going on a diet or lose weight, rather it means choosing nutritious foods to keep you hale and hearty. Be certain that a daily intake of a nutritious diet will lead you towards a better and healthier lifestyle.
No More Calorie Counting
“Eating clean” is your ticket to a slim and healthy physique. According to Tosca Reno, an author and fitness expert, you should be eating six nutritious meals a day in the right proportion. This includes a combination of lean protein and complex carbohydrates.
She believes that your sluggish metabolism would change into a fat-burning power house if you drink enough water and exercise consistently.
Reno claims that if you commit to a clean eating habit, you’ll drop roughly 3 pounds per week. However, the advantages extend beyond weight loss. You’ll be healthier and have more energy. Your pupils will dilate, and your eyes will appear bright and alert. Your teeth and gums will be healthier and your skin will be radiant.
Some Quick and Healthy Recipes
Did we mention that you won’t be hungry?

Sizzling Beef Fajita:
Chili’s fajitas are one of our favorites. Nothing beats the thrill of seeing steak sizzling in the hot skillet as it arrives at the table. It’s a memory we’ve always treasured, and it’s one you can now replicate at home as one of your easy and healthy meals.
Recipe of Sizzling Beef Fajita:
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus a little bit more for cooking
One lime juice
One teaspoon oregano, dried
Half a teaspoon cumin powder
One teaspoon chili powder
1 pound steak (skirt)
Black peppercorns, freshly ground
One sliced bell pepper
One large onion, half-moon sliced
Tortillas are used to serve food
For serving, sour cream
Cilantro is used to garnish the dish
Serving of pico de gallo
Whisk together olive oil, lime juice, oregano, cumin, and chili powder in a large mixing basin. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and toss the steak in the mixture. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes, but no more than 4 hours.
Preheat the grill to a medium-high temperature. Drizzle a thin layer of olive oil over a fajita pan (or cast iron skillet) right over the hot grill. Season with salt and pepper after adding the onion and bell pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until done. When vegetables are tender, remove the pan.
Shake off any excess marinade from the steak and season both sides with salt and pepper in the meantime. Place on the grill and cook until medium-rare, about 4 minutes per side. Allow for a 10- minute rest period before slicing into strips (against the grain!). Add the sliced steak to the skillet with the vegetables.
Serve immediately with tortillas, sour cream, cilantro, and pico de gallo.
