One of my lovely readers asked what my best quick and healthy dinner standbys were so here's a little run down of my fast favorites, and I would be BEYOND thrilled to hear yours:
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle)
Shayla: In a crockpot cook 1 lb chicken breasts, 1 jar of your favorite fresh salsa, and 1/2 cup honey on low...about an hour before dinner break up chicken into smaller pieces and raise heat to high...the result is juicy, shredded chicken...serve with tortillas, rice and black beans...I LOVE these pickled onions on mine...
Raising Foodies for this one...I like mine with caramelized onions, chicken sausage and greens - heaven!
I also like to make:
- big batches of turkey spaghetti with lots of carrots & greens and freeze half
- a japanese influenced stirfry (tofu, mirin, ginger, soy sauce, edamame) over udon noodles and a generous dose of Eden Shake
- pizza topped with all our leftover CSA veggies...
always in my pantry:
really nice Sea Salt
Can't Live Without:
How to Cook Everything
I also like to get Lila involved when possible (but let's face it - sometimes letting them watch a quick show while you cook in peace is lovely)...I bought her this crinkle cutter - very toddler friendly - and let her sit on the counter, peel onions, chop apples and snack on edamame...
So what's for dinner at your house tonight?
