Let’s face it: no matter how much time you spend organizing your week and planning for healthy dinners, there are some nights when you just *cannot* summon the strength to cook. Whether you’re coming off a vacation where a cheese board was considered a viable dinner option, or you’re being pulled in a million directions in the middle of a busy week, the last thing you need is to tackle a complicated meal (with the cleanup to match!). Emily’s got six family-approved dinner ideas that’ll make dinner go from fridge to fork in fifteen minutes – and even give you leftovers for the next few days! Because getting healthy food fast and easy will help keep your summer sanity intact!

Thought-Provoking Quotes

You don't have to be Superwoman. You don't have to make a five-course meal every single night. Just getting something on the table is exactly what you need.” Emily Ley

“As long as you're all sitting down and eating together, that's a really special meal. Remember, that's the most important thing anyway.” Emily Ley

A Blessing for Your Week

May you welcome simplicity and ease into your kitchen while removing the stress of cooking and meal planning. 

May you nourish your mind, body and soul with simple but delicious foods.

And may each meal bring you and your family a little closer together. 

Simplicity Tip of the Week

Maybe you create a new tradition to have the same dish on the same night each week. Friday night is pizza night. Maybe you do taco Tuesday or pick a rotisserie chicken up on Monday after work. Taking the guesswork out of what's for dinner one night a week is a vacation for your brain. Give yourself that small gift and I bet your family might like it too.
