30 of The BEST 30-Minute Healthy Dinners
Happy Friday ya’ll!
I don’t know about you, but I am super excited for the weekend for so many reasons! But before I get to telling you about that how about we talk about the deliciousness that lies right below these words.
Being a full time mommy, running my own business, and trying to keep the house clean is exhausting. So I am always looking for ways to make life easier! One of the ways I protect my time is making sure I’m not slaving away in the kitchen for hours on end. I usually stick to 30 minute meals … anything more than that is for someone real fancy. 🙂
Just because a meal takes 30 minutes to make DOES NOT mean it skimps on flavor. If anything these meals are bursting with flavor and you’ll wonder how they only take 30 minutes to make. I cannot wait to hear which recipes become staples in your house! Bon Appetit my friends!
