With sunny days here and beach season on the horizon, it’s a perfect time to get outside, have fun with family and friends, and feel good in your body. Nourishing meals full of fresh produce, lean protein, and whole grains will help you reach your goals – whether you’re looking to lose some weight or just have more energy. This Summer Slim Down Challenge includes a free meal plan, cookbook, and printable shopping lists for 14 Days of Healthy Dinner Recipes! It’s a simple and delicious way to get the season started on the right track!

So many of you struggle to prepare healthy, quick dinners – especially on busy weeknights when you don’t have time to cook. Meal planning is tedious, you can’t make it to the grocery store multiple times per week, and you have no idea where to start. You’re stuck in a rut, bored with your current choices, and ready for a change!

This Summer Slim Down Challenge is not a “diet” to follow. I’m not a nutritionist or a Registered Dietitian, and I don’t believe that we need to diet to be healthy, confident, and fit. Food is fuel for our bodies, but it should also be enjoyed and celebrated! This compilation of 14 Healthy Dinner Recipes is designed to nourish your body, help you feel good in your own skin, and get you excited about trying new options. It includes great variety — from chicken, beef, pork, and seafood, to vegetarian options, pasta dishes, and more — so that there’s something for everyone to love!

While I did not prepare a meal plan for any specific dietary concerns (for instance, this is not a “vegetarian,” “low-carb,” or “Paleo” plan), I looked for recipes that:

  • are relatively low in calories;
  • include a balance of lean protein, vegetables, and whole grains or complex carbs;
  • utilize simple, real ingredients; and
  • don’t require much time or effort in the kitchen!

In the end, you need to do what works best for your body and feel free to make substitutes and changes when necessary!

You will notice that I included a different meal for every night. In reality, that’s a lot of cooking! If you don’t want to make a new dinner each day, that’s fine – just pick a few that look good and aim for trying 2 or 3 new choices each week.

Here’s a glimpse at the easy, quick-prep meal plan:
