Healthy Meals for Two : 5 Dinner Recipes Under 500 Calories

/ / Health, Healthy food

Want some easy to make and healthy meals for two? Getting in shape has been a global challenge specially when it comes to picking the right food to eat for a family. The difficulty of finding the right type of food has always been one of the many banes of trying to lose weight. And we all know that exercise alone, even if you clock in hours of gym time every week, is not enough. There’s also this acceptable theory that losing weight is 80% diet and 20% exercise and let’s not even get started on how much calories we need to shed off per day. This makes losing weight all the more frustrating because you literally have to pick the food you stuff inside your mouth and this can be so stressful which makes most people quit the diet altogether. But it doesn’t always have to be this way.
