Question@2x Hi Lisa,

I like to cook, but most weeknights I need something SUPER easy to whip up. Do you have any easy, all-in-one meals I can make on busy nights?

Weeknight Wishin’
Answer@2x Hi WW,

I can relate! There are a lot of easy dinner recipes in the HG arsenal -- some of my favorites are stir-frys, protein bowls, and sheet-pan meals. Here are over a dozen simple meals for your chewing pleasure…

Protein Bowls

Protein + veggies + seasonings = an easy weeknight meal in as little as 20 minutes!

Sheet-Pan Meals

Instead of dirtying a ton of pots and pans, add your ingredients to a sheet pan, and pop it in the oven. Talk about low maintenance!

Tacos & Tostadas

Tacos and tostadas are delicious, versatile, and super easy. I like to get creative with unexpected fillings…

Stir-Frys & Skillet Meals

Toss your favorite lean protein, veggies, and sauce in a skillet, and let the magic happen. (The Sloppy Jane recipe is a personal fave!)

Chew on this:

Today, November 20th, is National Peanut Butter Fudge Day. Celebrate with 4-ingredient PB ‘Nana Fudge -- only 93 calories per piece!
