The daily struggle of work, kids, commuting to and from after school activities, including time for the gym. No matter what the reason, we have all been there – time poor and with no idea what to make for dinner! Let’s not get started on the addition of managing the family food likes and dislikes!!
When meals are prepared in a hurry, high carb, low vegetable options tend to be the ones that fill our plates, particularly for kids. What we need though, are options that contains vegetables as well as some lean protein, in order to keep the nutrition up and to help promote balanced eating habits long term.
