Quick & Healthy Comfort Food

If you’re anything like me, when the weather is cold and all I can see out my window is snow, my favorite thing to do is nestle inside and get cozy. This is the season for “comfort food” (which I love), and I’m definitely drawn to meals that are quick and healthy, yet satisfy this craving.

We all know how important it is for families to eat meals together, and with our increasingly busy lives, it can be tough sometimes. So, in the spirit of quick, healthy meals, I’ve found some amazing recipes and timesaving tips that are sure to help in your meal planning.

Don’t forget to label your freezer meals or leftovers. We recommend using our Date Labels  - you'll never have to guess what’s inside, or if it was made last week or last month. Our bright and colorful labels are reusable, can be personalized and are completely safe to use in the fridge/freezer, microwave or dishwasher.

If you try any of the recipes above, let us know what you think… we’d love to hear which are hits (and misses!).

Happy cooking!!
