Quick & Healthy Weeknight Family Dinners

Is it just me or are weeknights somehow getting even busier? Between hustling to and from after-school practices, squeezing in homework and making sure the kids get to bed by a reasonable hour, there’s hardly time to sit down for a healthy family dinner—let alone make one.

That’s where these quick recipes come in. As a registered dietitian and mother of two, I know how important it is for your kids to eat well. Not only do these dishes take the guesswork out of what to make for dinner, but they’re so simple you’ll probably have them memorized after the first try.

Buy back a little time this week and throw together one of these delicious, healthy recipes.
