What if you could make dinner easy and healthy? That is what we have been working on around my house. I’m excited to let you all in on our easy and healthy family dinner ideas. Because at the end of the day, you want to feed your body good, but not spend all night cooking dinner. Seeds of Change sponsored this post but all of the recipes and opinions are our own.
Easy And Healthy Family Dinner Ideas
I don’t know about you, but grilling always my go to. Throwing some meat on the grill and pairing with some veggies and fruit is always super fun and easy. My husband loves to grill and I prep the sides. It’s a great way to work together as a team.
Any Kind Of Salad
Most people think that salads are boring, but I think they are amazing. You can do so much with a bed of lettuce. You could add grilled chicken, steak, or even shredded pork on top of a salad. When you think salads are boring, it’s time to switch things up a bit.
Meat in the Crockpot
At the end of a long day, I’m always glad that I used my crockpot. Such an awesome tool, but so simple too! I love cooking easy and healthy meals in our crockpot. From soups to roasts, it’s the perfect tool for cooking our favorite meals.
One Of Our Favourite Family Meals
Now that I’ve shared some ideas with you, I want to share our favorite meal around here. Honey carrots and Chicken Drumsticks. Both are easy, yummy, and healthy! This meal I’m about to share with you is something that my daughter LOVES. These recipes are so simple and so customizable. Do not be afriad to put in your favourite flavours.
Recipe For Honey Carrots
- Boil a bag of carrots until al dente.
- Mix in a tablespoon of honey.
Recipe For Chicken Drumsticks
- Use drumsticks with skin on it.
- Thaw if frozen.
- Put in a shallow pan.
- Season with salt (I used pink Himalayan Salt but sea salt works too), pepper, and marjoram. Sprinkle on top.
- Use whatever spices you desire. Cook at 375 until it’s no longer pink. This can take anywhere from 40-50 minutes depending on your oven.
I told you that was easy – I wasn’t lying.
SEEDS OF CHANGE® Packet (Quinoa And Brown Rice with Garlic)
For our sides at home, Iove using SEEDS OF CHANGE® Packets. For this particular recipe, I used both the Spanish Style and Quinoa And Brown Rice with Garlic. Let me tell you, it is so amazing! If you’re unfamiliar with SEEDS OF CHANGE®, it is such an amazing product. The flavors rock, but so does the company’s mission. It’s important that you know where your food comes from and SEEDS OF CHANGE® knows this! My 4 year old was all over the garlic flavour while I preferred the Spanish Style.
