5 Super Solutions for a Family’s Weeknight Bliss

As moms, we all know the challenges we face in preparing satisfying meals for our families after an extremely busy day. There are 5 Super Solutions on my task list that guide me and my family to weeknight bliss.

Get Organized

Store commonly used ingredients and kitchen tools in the same place every time. If you make it a habit, you’ll quickly see how efficiency can save you time and teach your kids the value of staying organized.

Make Meal Plans

Prepare and do your grocery shopping for supper meals before the chaos of the week sets in. Set aside some uninterrupted time (for me, it’s the early morning) – about 15 minutes – to plan a week’s worth of meals and your shopping list. Remember to shop from your pantry first. This process will take less time, once you have a routine in place.

Cook Quickly

Work faster, not harder by taking advantage of your grocery and kitchen resources. You can do this by reading through your recipes or package instructions  and gather your ingredients before you begin cooking.

Cook Healthy

Put these simple tips to work to improve nutrition and encourage smart eating habits.

  • Select canned fruits in their own juices rather than in syrups
  • Use low fat dairy products, salad dressings and other condiments
  • Avoid adding salt to recipes when possible. Experiment with using salt-free seasoning blends or fresh lemon juice over foods
  • Sneak in more nutrition into your foods like broccoli, more fruit, veggies instead of chips, or fresh fruit for snacks
  • Broil, grill, or steam your foods
  • And of course there’s portion control

Promote A Sense Of Family

Joining together for a meal has a greater purpose than simply eating. No matter what the size of your family, mealtime is for talking, sharing, listening, learning and supporting one another.
