Sometimes the hardest part about feeding your family is finding the right meal idea. Do you agree?
At our house, we ask a lot of our recipes. We want them to be:
- Affordable and
- Simple to prepare.
- As if that wasn't enough, we also want our family to enjoy eating them!
To make our meals easier to plan and make, we created our Master List of Meals. These are our "go to" meals that meet all the criteria above. (You can check our Master List out here.) And even though our family's Master List has over 20 meals on it, we are often looking for more ideas.
But, I don't want the expense or clutter or too many cookbooks, so when I found a free cookbook that fit with our style of cooking and eating - I was thrilled.
It's Deliciously Healthy Family Meals. It's put out by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). It's really good! We've made the Hawaiian Huli Huli Chicken with rave reviews at our table.
This cookbook is also laid out really well, with great added features like:
- Healthier Classics
- Leftover Friendly symbols
- Chef in Training Tips
- Healthy Eating Two Ways - to modify the meal for different palates.
