Happy New Year! 

Did you make any new year’s resolutions? Are you trying to eat healthier? Maybe you’re doing Whole30 (see some great recipes here) or cutting back on calories. To help out those looking to cut back on calories, today I am sharing these dinner recipes under 600 calories. I include the calories for each recipe and give some suggestions for sides or toppings, in the cases of the pizza crust. If you can afford it, I recommend purchasing grass-fed or pasture raised meats. It’s better for the animal and it’s better for you. 

I hope you enjoy this collection of 20 Dinner Recipes Under 600 Calories.
