I menu plan weekly. By menu planning it helps me stay organized and makes it easier for me to prepare healthy meals for my family. We all have busy nights throughout the week when making dinner can be challenging. On those nights, it’s so easy to say – “Lets just order out”. It doesn’t have to be that way, you can easily make a healthy meal for your family without spending hours in the kitchen.
Here are some of my favorite go to 30 minute meals that I make on those crazy busy nights.
- Grilled Cheese and Homemade Tomato Soup
- Homemade Pizza
- One Pot Pasta
- Breakfast for Dinner
- Tacos using grass fed beef or lean ground chicken or turkey
- Risotto with grilled chicken
- Sloppy Joes with Homemade Fries
- Salads – the boys love Taco Salad
Soups are one of my go-to easy meals that I can make within a short amount of time. You can pack in a ton of veggies and protein that makes for a healthy meal. I recently had the opportunity to try out Frontier Soups. These soups come in many varieties and packed in a convenient all in one freeze dried package. Most of soups you only need to add broth or meat to complete the soup. If you follow a gluten free diet they have 28 soups that are gluten free. All the corn and rice in every soup mix is certified non-gmo which is an important factor for us when looking at pre-packaged meals.
We haven’t tried all the soups…YET but were happy with the chicken noodle soup and the chicken tortilla soup. These soups saved me on those busy nights when I didn’t have time to prepare a normal meal and we could eat it quickly before rushing off to sporting events.
So when you have just one of those days when time has run away from you and you haven’t nothing planned for dinner, try one of the many Frontier Soups. Frontier Soups can be found in many places throughout the US/Canada including Whole Foods, The Fresh Market, Kroger Natural Stores, Central Market in Texas, Great Harvest Bread Stores, Omaha Steaks, Braum’s Fresh Markets and 1500 other independent and specialty stores across the country, and in Canada at Sobey’s and Whole Foods. Products are also available online at Frontier Soups, Abe’s Market and Amazon.
