2. Sorrel and Potato Gratin
Gotta love potatoes!!! The reason I like this dish so much is that it yields so many servings, and it just looks like something straight out of a restaurant. And here’s a pro tip: you can actually do that all year round! Just replace the greens for your seasonal choice (such as spinach, kale, etc).
Here’s what you need: 2 medium shallots,

3. Balsamic Grilled Chicken Salad
Folks, this is an amazing on-the-go healthy, yummy lunch. I like to meal prep with mason jars or tiny plastic bowls, because it helps me portion my food, while also saving space in the fridge. I live for recipes like this because they’re so tasty and super quick to make!

4. Pina Colada Icebox Cake
The reason I love healthy, lightweight dinner/lunch recipes such as the one-pan salmon or the balsamic grilled chicken salad is specifically so that I don’t feel bad about loving recipes such as this pina colada icebox cake! Just thinking of it makes my mouth water.
Here’s what you need: 1 package cream cheese (softened), confectioners’ sugar, rum extract, canned coconut milk, instant vanilla pudding mix, frozen whipped topping (thawed), whole graham crackers, canned crushed pineapple (drained), and sweetened shredded coconut (toasted).

5. Pea, Mint & Spring Onion Soup
This hella stylish soup makes for another great lightweight dinner for when you have guests coming over. It’s very easy to make, it smells SUPER good and it’s a fairly “uncommon” soup, which makes you come off as a chef when presenting it to your dinner guests!
