Nutrition and Wellness Tip To Save Time
Nutrient-Rich Snack Examples For You &The Little Ones:
Recipes can be great, for people who have time. I'm a recipe kind of person myself but not its everyday I have time to follow one. So I like to think of basic components - protein, fruit &veggie and grain. One pot soups or casseroles are your best friend!
For Soups - choose a protein such as beans, meat / seafood, chickpeas, lentils, tofu or tempeh. Add veggies, herbs and spices, broth stock or water. You can add in a grain like noodles, or serve it with a whole grain bread on the side. *This is a great way to use produce before it spoils btw.
For Casseroles - The same concept as making a soup but instead of broth add a sauce and bake this dish in the oven.
For One Pot Meals - Usually prepared in a crock pot or slow cooker. Simply add components such as frozen chicken breasts, a jar of salsa, corn and rice or black beans. Set the time & go!
