Recipe round-up for busy weeknight meals (or healthy swaps for quick healthy family dinners)

You CAN just say no to the drive-thru. Here's how I make dinner fast, easy, healthy:

  • Cook starches and proteins in larger batches to mix and match later in the week.

  • Buy frozen veggies to save prep time.

  • Frozen rice cooks wayyy faster than boxed and doesn’t have inflammatory oils like the “ready rice” in the bag.

  • Themed meals: breakfast, kids choice, leftovers, make your own pizza, big salads, soup.

  • Get saucy:

  • Teriyaki: coconut aminos + honey + rice vinegar + sesame oil

  • Italian: cashew milk + tapioca starch (thickener) + garlic and/or onion powder

  • Greek: red wine vinegar + oregano + olive oil
