Healthy Meal Planning Gives Me My Sanity Back
I’ve been on my own with all the kids lately on the weekends and I really depend on some healthy meal planning to help me retain my sanity during these completely chaotic weekends. A chilly Sunday afternoon with this meal bubbling away on the stove is just heavenly. I fall back on these enchiladas often because not only are they absolutely yummy, but they are actually healthy, too! The chicken is baked right in the homemade enchilada sauce and the other ingredients put into the dish are so few I feel really good serving this to my family.
Chicken Pasta Alfredo
Okay, I cheat a little on this recipe, but during the week it’s the best kind of recipe! I use a jar of Newman’s All Natural Alfredo Sauce and doctor it up. First I chop the chicken and saute it in the pan on high heat. Then I add the sauce, a bay leaf, fresh garlic, fresh broccoli, fresh carrots, peas. Simmer together until veggies are done and then add some cheese on top. Mix with already cooked pasta.
Quick Red Beans with Tomatoes and Cilantro
This is a wonderful Moroccan dish that can be served in tortillas with cheese. Make cornbread on the side.
