Dinner made as easy as 1…2…3

Meal planning is essential to healthy eating. Failing to plan can lead to last-minute (usually unhealthy) choices such as take out or frozen pizza. That’s why I’ve created the following to help you plan healthy, balanced meals. Simply pick an item from each list to create a meal that you can feel good about eating and serving to family and friends.

Enjoy!
