Between commuting, working, running the kids to after school activities, and trying to get a workout in, coming up with dinner ideas is a daily challenge for many people. It’s easy to run through a drive through, but there are lots of easy dinner solutions that are better for you, inexpensive, and guaranteed to please the entire family. Our list of four easy dinner solutions has something for everyone.

Protein Packed Turkey Chili

Chili is a classic easy dinner idea that’s a great option for even the busiest people. The ingredients for this protein packed turkey chili can be dumped into a slow cooker in the morning and left to cook all day so it will be ready when you get home for dinner. Made with five different types of beans, lean ground turkey, and protein powder, each serving is packed with the protein you need to refuel after a long day. You’ll be able to feed a family of six with one easy meal that also keeps well if you want to have leftovers for the next day’s lunch.

Cauliflower Protein Bowl

Cauliflower is the bell of the ball lately, with this versatile ingredient being used to make everything from pizza crusts to rice. Our cauliflower protein bowl brings southwest flavor with taco seasoning, black beans, cilantro, avocado and corn, with a scoop of protein powder helping to up the protein content. You’ll get 12 grams of protein, in just one bowl, plus tons of veggies, including delicious roasted cauliflower.

Vegan Protein Pesto and Roasted Tomato Pizza

Pizza night doesn’t have to mean spending money on unhealthy takeout. You can make a quick and easy vegan protein pesto and roasted tomato pizza that kids of all ages will enjoy while still getting in lots of nutrition. The secret is using a prepared pizza dough (regular or cauliflower crust) to cut down on prep time. Making your own pesto is a snap with the help of a food processor. For the vegan version, nutritional yeast adds the cheesy flavor without the dairy, but you can also add your favorite shredded cheese to the pizza if you prefer.

Spaghetti Squash With Protein Sauce

If you love pasta but are trying to cut down on your carb intake, look no further than this spaghetti squash with protein sauce. The spaghetti squash is easily roasted to fluffy perfection in an oven, while butternut squash, nutritional yeast, protein powder, and a handful of other ingredients are combined in a food processor to make a cheesy protein sauce to top the dish. One serving contains 16 grams of protein, or about 32 percent of your daily value. The recipe feeds a family of four with ease, but we don’t blame you if you want to make one just for yourself!
