These 30 minute healthy mains will stop you from even considering the drive thru.
We have all been there – running on empty, thinking that you would rather just pick something up than cook – but don’t do it. You will feel so much better if you make a quick meal that is fresh, tasty, and good for you.
Most likely, you will also save money. My favorite meals aren’t even built from a recipe. I will take the salmon from below (cooked from frozen) and toss it on top of a bed of fresh mixed greens with some fresh lemon juice squeezed on top. YUM!
I can’t be with you all – in the car on the way home from work – but I hope I can get in your head. You can do this!! You can make better food and better choices. Maybe not all of the time but most of the time.
Many of the recipes can be straight from your pantry. I keep food like frozen chicken breasts, frozen fish, canned beans, canned tuna, and all sorts of shelf stable food in my house so I can be ready for a busy night. Yes, that takes planning but it isn’t so bad once you get the hang of it.
