For many people, dinner is a rushed meal. After you get home from work, pick up your kids from school, or run errands, the last thing you want to do is prepare an extravagant meal.

But the problem is that not eating a healthy dinner can cause you to overeat way into the evening.

That’s why I try to plan my dinners in advance and try to choose heart-healthy dinners to keep me full and satisfied.
