After a long day of work or school, the last thing most people would like to do is cook a time-consuming meal. Ordering in may cross your mind, however the total cost of takeout, especially to feed a family, is often a deterrent. So what do you make?
Here are 5 quick and easy simple ingredient dinners to help you eat well after a busy day!
Power bowls are a classic among families and can be customized to suit a variety of preferences by omitting, adding and swapping out ingredients. Packed with whole ingredients, power bowls are a great way to sneak healthy vegetables and protein into your family’s daily diet.
Our BLT Power Bowl is a great option, and includes rice, bacon, lettuce, tomato, eggs, black beans, avocados, shredded cheese, mayonnaise and a variety of seasonings.
To make prep faster, use leftover rice from the night before. Avocados can be pre-diced ahead of time and stored in the freezer to extend their shelf-life and speed up your prep time.
Fried rice dishes are packed with flavour and are great for using up leftovers like cooked rice, chicken, vegetables, and more!
Our Veggie & Egg Fried Rice is the perfect recipe to get you started. The recipe calls for eggs, carrots, red peppers, snow peas, rice and onions, although the ingredients can be swapped to use up what you have on hand. Want to add an extra protein boost? Add in leftover chicken!
Fried rice is a great way to add frozen vegetables to your diet, which are just as nutritious as fresh vegetables and more cost effective.
These Easy Egg Tacos only take 20 minutes to make, and are an exceptionally fun dinner choice for the kids. Simply add scrambled eggs to a tortilla wrap with whatever toppings you may like! We recommend adding cheese, ham and peppers.
Although quiche sounds fancy, they are incredibly easy to make and can be prepared ahead of time. You can add whatever toppings you like to your egg mixture, but quiche is another great way to use up leftover protein and vegetables. Try our Basic Quiche recipe.
Frittatas are great for any time of the day. Their ease of cooking is what makes them such a great dinner option!
Our Pizza Frittata only requires 10 minutes of prep time. The great thing about frittatas is you can substitute the toppings with foods you have on hand. Each egg has 6 grams of protein, making this meal filling and nutritious!
