5 Healthy Meal Options for a Busy Military Family

Want to eat healthier but aren’t sure where to start? Guard Your Health, a health and wellness campaign for Army National Guard Soldiers and families, is here to help! Check out five healthy (and affordable) meals the whole family can enjoy. 

  1. Cheesy Mushroom Frittata. Take your breakfast to the next level with this cheesy mushroom frittata. Packed with vegetables, eggs, and cheese, this frittata will give you enough energy to power through your morning. If you’re not a fan of mushrooms, swap them out for another vegetable, such as spinach or broccoli.
  2. Easy Avocado & Provolone Turkey Wraps. If you find yourself eating out for lunch every day, try making these budget-friendly turkey wraps instead. Turkey is a great source of protein, which keeps you feeling fuller longer. Be sure to read the nutrition label before buying to look for natural options, since some deli turkey can be loaded with extra salt and preservatives.
  3. Spinach Stuffed Chicken. With both chicken and spinach, this recipe is full of nutrients. Chicken is a great source of protein and vitamin B12, which can help reduce depression. Spinach is also packed with vitamins and minerals, including fiber, which keeps your digestive system running smoothly.
  4. Slow Cooker Peach Glazed Pork Roast. This recipe cooks itself! Throw this in the slow cooker for you and your family, or make it for a dinner party. Either way, you’re sure to look like a professional chef!
  5. No-Bake Chocolate Oat Cookies. Satisfy your sweet tooth with these healthy, no-bake oat cookies. Oats are full of magnesium, manganese, and zinc, which all help lower cholesterol and promote weight loss.
