Here are 5 tips for simpler meals this summer!

Salads: Add Nuts

A simple way to help get a filling meal in this summer is to add some nuts to your green salad! This requires no cooking and minimal time to put together...much simpler than preparing meat! Additionally, nuts are a great source of minerals, healthy fats and proteins. Just remember not to get carried away as they are high in calories!

Eat Fruits & Vegetables in Season

Eating fruits and vegetables in season during the summertime is a great way to help you stay motivated to cook. Find some new recipes you want to try with produce that is in season in the summer – you’ll have the excuse to try it since this produce will be cheaper! Try to find something that looks exciting to you!

Breakfast for Dinner

Breakfast foods are generally quick to prepare! One of our favorites is scrambled eggs with veggies (try zucchini, spinach, tomatoes and onions)! This requires minimal effort and doesn’t take very long to put together, but still provides a healthy meal.

Prepare Extra

Save yourself time and energy by making sure that every meal you cook can be used for at least two meals.

Cook in the Morning:

We typically have more energy in the mornings and the house is also cooler in the summertime. Take advantage of this if you can one day this week and cook your dinner in the morning. It will help the meal feel simpler even if it’s not because you have more energy when preparing it.
