Happy Holidays! And btw…WE HEARD YOU! We asked a bunch of you to give us feedback (a huge thank you to all who helped us out here) and we heard you LOUD AND CLEAR!
Quick, simple, healthy is the name of the game. You’re looking for really fast, nutritious meals that kids will eat, don’t take many ingredients to make and you can whip out in a few minutes.
Take this One Pan Pesto Veggies and Sausage! There literally couldn’t be anything easier to make for dinner. Five minutes to prep, 30 minutes in the oven and THAT’S IT. DINNER!
It couldn’t be more QUICK, SIMPLE or HEALTHY, and this baby is YUMMY. Grab some pesto next time you’re at the store or Costco, and pick up some sausages, like our favorite, Teton Waters Ranch cooked uncured Polish Sausages. Toss them with some veggies, into the oven and there you go.
If you’ve got an I-ate-too-many-rich-meals-for-Christmas kind of hangover, if you’ve got a New Year’s goal like the rest of the world to lose weight, get fit, eat healthier, just start here. Healthy isn’t boring or tasteless.
One Pan Pesto Veggies and Sausage is just the start! Delicious and healthy all in a half hour. It’s a Happy Holiday, indeed!
(And tune in often, because we’ve got loads more healthy, quick recipes for busy moms, dads and kids! Cheers!)
