It can be difficult to stay motivated to eat healthy every night of the week. Maybe you are exhausted from work, don't have the right ingredients, or don't know enough about cooking to create healthy meals for yourself. Here is a healthy eating plan to help you stay on top of your weeknight meals!

1. Turkey-Apple Gyros
TIP: Substitute every white grain in your pantry with whole wheat products. Check the label to make sure they are using all whole grains.


2. Swordfish with a Garlic Mushroom Sauce
TIP: Replace the butter with olive oil for a healthier alternative.


3. Chicken and Pea Pod Stir-fry
TIP: Omit the sugar in this recipe and add honey or agave instead if you want a sweet kick. Also, remember to always use low sodium soy sauce because it controls your salt intake.

4. Gazpacho Salad
TIP: Use quinoa, brown, or wild rice instead of white rice.

5. Sea Bass with Dried Fruit Salsa
TIP: Fresh fruit works just as well in this recipe and has more vitamins and nutrients than dried fruit.
