With the hectic back-to-school season behind us you’re probably (hopefully!) in a groove with school lunch. But what about dinner?! I find that I get so wrapped up in preparing to pack lunches and getting my healthy snack game on that I forget—completely—about how hard it is to get healthy dinners on the table come fall.
With the kids in school all day, I always think that I’ll have more time to cook but, in reality, outdoor after school activities, homework, the early fall of darkness, and school night bedtimes make getting home cooked dinners on the table way harder than in the summer. And that’s not to mention more limited produce choices, at least in many parts of the country. Having go-to recipes that I can count on to be easy, healthy, and fast is key to maintaining my sanity while keeping the family healthy through this busy time of year.
