The Struggle Is Real

Finding inspiration for dinners that are quick, easy and that the whole family will enjoy can be a difficult task. Whether you've got picky eaters or are just sick of eating the same thing over and over, here are some great ideas to throw into your weekly dinner rotation. They all require some prep work, but once that's done, the rest is easy. Don't be afraid to swap out ingredients for whatever you have at home.

When you start meal planning, it doesn't mean you'll have the whole week prepped and ready in containers. It just means that you've thought which dinners you want to make and what you'll need for them. One of the easiest dinners to make is pasta. Kids love it, it's versatile and it doesn't take long. Here are some ideas you can choose from for your next pasta night!

Protein + Veg

Chicken is a great option for weeknight dinners. It's budget-friendly, easy to cook and super versatile. The easiest way to serve it is just with a side salad or maybe some roasted veg. Take a look at these chicken dinner winners that you should add to your cookbook.

Slow Cooker

The slow cooker is amazing because you can cook big batches at once that will last you a few days. Some of my favorite slow cooker recipes are below. I know that oats aren't exactly dinner, but I just love them so much!

Leftovers

Don't be afraid to use leftovers! There are lots of recipes that are super flexible and made to be played around with.

That's it!

I hope you get a chance to try adding some of these recipes to your weekly rotation. If you do, please let me know!
