Living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t always come easy. There’s roadblocks and temptations and meals that are just too convenient to pass up when you’re living a busy life. As a mom of 3 with health goals (and a really busy schedule) I’ve come to love and rely on recipes that fit the life I lead. Enter: one pan dinners! With minimal prep (mostly just chopping) you have an entire meal in one pan leaving you extra time to workout, make lunches, get caught up on emails, have a glass of wine (you deserve it!) or whatever else you have going on. Bonus points for the lack of dishes and clean-up required afterwards, too.
