Want to lose weight?
Want to eat healthier?
Want to spend more time as a family?
It’s simple really – sit down and enjoy at least one meal a day as a family. But as simple as it is, when you start juggling activities, and the school/house/job work that needs to be done, it really doesn’t always seem that simple.
So in September, with the beginning of school, I wanted to make dinner a special time for our family where nutritious, yummy food was enjoyed with gratitude and good conversation. To make this happen, I went into complete research mode – grabbing stacks of cookbooks, scouring recipe sites, looking up healthy food options – and started planning away. While my focus was on revamping our diet toward sustainable, organic, healthy eats, I also knew that certain family comfort foods would have to stay on the menu (though with organic or local ingredients when possible).
Each day in October, I’m going to share one recipe, one conversation starter or discussion topic, and one helpful tip. You might notice a theme – Mondays will be meatless, Tuesday will be tacos (Taco Tuesday is a tradition in this house), on Wednesdays I’ll share one of our favorite comfort food recipes, Thursday’s recipes will feature quick dinners, Friday will be seafood/fish recipes, Saturday will be breakfast (because we can’t always make dinner our family meal). On Sunday, I’ll feature the traditional big Sunday spread type meals.
I hope you’ll share your family dinner traditions and favorite recipes with me too!!
This page will share the links for each day so if you want a place to bookmark – this is your spot. Posts will go live around 6am each morning!
