September is National Family Meals Month, an initiative spearheaded by the Food Marketing Institute. It’s designed to encourage families to gather around the table more often and to educate everyone about the many health benefits of breaking bread together.
I’m on board with #FamilyMealsMonth and hope you are too. To make family mealtime easier (especially now that kids everywhere are back in school) and more nutritious, I collected 25 fast and healthy recipes from my dietitian blogger friends to share with you. I organized the recipes into three categories: seafood, poultry, and vegetarian.
From cookbooks and blogs to food magazines and family archives, there are literally millions of recipes out there. Yet, when I ask my readers which meal of they search for the most, the majority say, DINNER.
