No more 5pm meal time planning! I’ve got you covered with these 52 Healthy School Night Recipes, including both meat and meatless dinner ideas.
52 Healthy Family Dinners – Meat & Meatless Dinner Ideas
No matter the time of year, healthy family dinners are a must for any family, but no more so than during the school year.
I can not tell a lie. As much as I’ve enjoyed having my boys at home with me during the summer and appreciated every minute of our summertime adventures, I am looking forward to falling back into a schedule again as school starts. For many of you, the beginning of school means the start of busy after school and evening schedules. From sports practices to dance classes, math homework to school projects, there’s a lot more to fit into the day.
If you’re like me, you may find yourself falling into the trap of making the same meals over and over (and over!) again. Because it’s easy. Because you don’t have the energy or wherewithal at the end of the day to think of something more original. I get it! I’m right there with you.
To make dinner planning a little easier (for me, too!), I pulled together 52 healthy family meals that have received the seal of approval in my house.
And to make it easier to sort through 52 recipes, I divided them into sections:
- chicken and turkey recipes,
- seafood recipes,
- vegetarian recipes, and
- beef and pork recipes.
