Having a busy day with work and errands and meetings? You aren’t alone. Most of our clients complain of simply not having enough time at the end of their day to cook a healthy dinner.

This I’m-too-busy-to-cook mentality leads to unhealthy dinner choices from restaurants, quick-spa’s and fast food chains. And like I’ve mentioned before, you can exercise every day but if your diet is up to crap, you won’t see any results. Train all you want, nothing will happen. So get your diet right. Plan – Prepare – Pack.

Today I have 3 quick dinner solutions for you to use on those busy weeknights when you’re tempted to grab a less-than-healthy dinner from a to-go joint. These dinners are both tasty and fitness friendly, so you can stay on track with your results.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Rinse the chicken and pat dry.
  2. Combine the mustard, garlic, marjoram and honey together and evenly spread the mixture over each chicken thigh. Place the chicken in a glass casserole pan.

Go-To Quick Dinner #2: Leftovers Frittata
