When dinner rolls around, cooking for yourself is typically the best way to ensure that you’re eating clean and healthy. However, you might find yourself getting bored with cooking the same five dishes that you have “mastered.” Here are some recipes to help you spice up your regular dinner schedule:
1. Creamy spinach sweet potato noodles with cashew sauce

2. Grilled vegetable quesadillas with goat cheese & pesto
A quesadilla is a great option when you want to quickly prepare a filling meal. This version includes a ton of vegetables like squash and zucchini, but also incorporates pesto and goat cheese. Find the full recipe here.
3. Cauliflower pizza crust

4. Mediterranean Five Grain Salad
Typically made with farro, barley, kamut, brown rice and oat groats, this salad combines healthy grains with an abundance of vegetables – making it both nutritious and filling enough to have for either lunch or dinner. If those grains aren’t among your favorites, this recipe also works well if you omit some or add other grains, such as quinoa or buckwheat. Find the full recipe here.
