The Basics of Busy Lives Healthy Eats

Who is this for?

This is for people who are in charge of preparing meals in their home who want to serve healthy meals that are easy and quick to prepare.

Do you prepare the meals in your house?

Do you want to prepare healthier meals?

Is quick and easy important to you?

Did you answer yes to all? Read on!

This website will provide healthy, easy-to-prepare meals for dinner. My focus will be to prepare meals Monday through Thursday.  Each day, you can read about the meal I prepared night before.  What I planned to do and what actually happened.  I will be candid and honest.  It will be a chance to find humor and sarcasm (something I am good at), share my tears of frustration.

For some of you my schedule may mirror yours and could be replicated at your own house.  For others, suffice it to say that you will identify with the chaos and over commitment that seems to engulf me on a regular basis.

On Fridays, I will provide the recipes and a shopping list if you want to recreate my dinner menu the following week.  Shop yourself on the weekends, have someone shop for you, or hire a service – figure out a way to get the shopping done in advance.  It’s the lynch pin to healthy eating.

The dinners will be balanced, with an eye towards managing salt and sugar.   I will try to keep expensive, one time ingredients to a minimum but there are times where a special ingredient will be necessary.  I am not a doctor, nurse, or nutritionist.  I don’t pretend to be the expert.  This blog is a way for me to share what I do, or try to do.  Use as much or as little as you want.

As the week progresses and you make the dinners, I will need feedback.  Consider the following:

  • Level of difficulty: Easy?
  • Time: Quick?
  • Taste scale: Tasty?
  • Overall review:  Make again?

Do you have recipes or information you want to share?  Please do!  I don’t have a fool proof answer to quick, easy, healthy meals every night.  This blog is the journey to find that answer.  Be a part of the solution.  It takes a village…
