These are some of our go-to easy dinners — including two BRAND NEW recipes from the Summer Tone Up Meal Plan! (Pssst...you can find the whole Meal Plan in your Tone It Up app!)

These tray bakes, lean bowls, and stir-fries are all super simple to throw together and have minimal clean-up. And of course, they are all made with nourishing, nutrient-packed whole foods, so you are doing something amazing for your beautiful body. 

If you can’t find some of the ingredients right now, no worries! You can always modify or swap something else in. What are your favorite dinners to make at home right now? We’re looking for more inspo, so let us know on Instagram @ToneItUp.
