I have the best of intentions on the weekend, “I’m going to do a ton of meal prep and have our meals all ready for the WHOLE week!” But inevitably, 8 o’clock Sunday rolls around, and I barely even managed to get groceries put away, let alone made into things we could eat. That’s why there’s a list of about 10 foods I keep on hand for the weeks that I just know are going to be crazy. These items can be made into edible meals with almost no effort at all. Gourmet? Heck no. But it’s better than McDonald’s and it fills us up in a pinch. Sometimes, it’s all about convenience.
10 Healthy Foods I keep On Hand to Feed the Family In a Pinch
What Can I Make From All This Stuff?
A LOT! Quesdillas, black bean tacos, grilled cheese sandwiches, French toast, cheese and veggie omelettes, eggs & toast, hard boiled eggs, egg salad sandwiches, spinach scrambles, spinach salad, chicken with steamed veggies, chicken & veggie stir fry, grilled chicken salads, and the list could go on and on. These are all things you can make in just minutes, in a pinch, yet you’re still feeding your family fairly healthy, real food.
Next time you’re in a pinch during a crazy week, grab these simple items and you’ll be feeding your family in minutes! 🙂
