Nutritious, Quick and Easy Family Dinner Options For Busy Days

Busy! That is a word that you could use to describe the experience of most moms on a daily basis. Of course, there is nothing wrong with being busy, especially when your life is filled with meaningful things like working, taking care of the family and church. However, sometimes being so busy does make prepared healthy meals for the family a bit of a challenge! The good news is that there are some tactics you can use to get nutritious meals on the table quickly and easily. Read on to find out what they are. 

Use the Instapot 

The first option to consider here is making use of a tool like the Instapot. The critical benefit of this type of cooking implement is that it can be used as a slow cooker. That means you can cut up the ingredients for a meal, pop them in, and then let them cook all day. The result is a delicious one-pot meal that is ready for the whole family to enjoy at dinner time. 

In fact, because all the ingredients go into the pot together at the same time, it is an easy way of making a nutritious family meal.

Another advantage of using a slow cooker or Instapot is that there are so many delicious and nutritious recipes out there to try. In fact, you can have a go at my Italian chicken dish if you like, which is filled with healthy chicken and green beans. 

Use a meal box service 

Another option for the busy mom to consider is using a meal box service. This is quite different from using a slow cooker because you make the meal each night just before you all sit down to eat.

However, the advantages of using this kind of service are many. The main one being that you do not have to do any meal planning or shopping. Yet, you can ensure your family gets fresh, healthy ingredients to eat every evening. 

They are a range of companies that offer these meal boxes services as well. You can even find out about how the top two providers in this Every Plate vs Hello Fresh comparison. Something that can help make sure you pick the right one that will fit your family's needs. 

Batch cook and freeze 

Finally, the other alternative is to take some time on the weekend and batch cook meals for dinner and then freeze them. In fact, you can choose to thoroughly cook the meals and then defrost and heat, or do all the preparation and then freeze just that. Something that means you can cook fresh each night. 

Of course, the only downside with this option is that it will take up a lot of time because you have to prep cook all meals at once. Although many busy moms choose to do this on one day for the whole month. A tradeoff that will provide plenty of nutritious family meals quickly and easily, no matter how busy they are.
