Finding time to prepare healthier meals for our families can sometimes (or always) be overwhelming, especially during the busy work week! Find out some of our favorite go-to nutrient dense meals and snacks for the whole family; grab your pen and paper!
Tempeh Sloppy Joes; one or two blocks of tempeh, chopped and then sauteed with a little oil in a pan. Add 1/2 a can (or up to one can) of sloppy joe sauce to the tempeh, serve on whole grain buns.
Simple Cheesey Vegetable bread; buy a frozen raw loaf of bread, thaw it out, press it out, add a bit of oil, cheese, and vegetables (I like spinach, red pepper and mushroom). Cook the vegetables first to get rid of excess water, then add them on top of the cheese. Roll the bread (basically fold it to encase the veggies and cheese) and put the seem downward. Bake according to directions.
Egg/Oat/Banana Pancakes: 1 egg, 1/4 cup oats, 1 mashed ripe banana, in a small bowl, mix well, pour onto a greased pan and cook both sides for about 1 minute (or until cooked through). Serve with Greek yogurt and PB on top, or whatever you’d like
Egg Muffins (modify how you’d like!); https://www.deliciousmeetshealthy.com/breakfast-egg-muffins/
Chocolate dipped apples; slice an apple, dips it in melted semi sweet chocolate cups
