Easy Dinner Solutions for More Time Focused on the Family

Practical dinner ideas for busy families emphasize simplicity: the faster the recipe and the shorter the ingredient list, the more likely you’ll be able to fit in cooking when both time and energy are short.  Planning ahead so you have what you need on hand without extra trips to the grocery store can be key to making a recipe that should only take 20 or 30 minutes a genuine time-saver. It helps to look for recipes that incorporate store-bought ingredients as shortcuts to a finished dish, like rotisserie chicken cut up for easy chicken tacos. Some parents also find that mastering appliances like an Instant Pot can be a useful life hack that makes it easier to get dinner on the table at a reasonable hour, even on busy weeknights.

So what happens when simplicity isn’t cutting it or locally sourced organic products can’t be found at your local stores? Your family shouldn’t have to skimp on flavor, nutrition, convenience, and variety. This is where Jessie and Laurent come in.

Healthy Meal Deliveries For Busy Families

We understand that when families have busy schedules, full of the demands of work, school, extracurricular activities, and more, the times when everyone can sit down together to reconnect and take a break from everyday stress become more important than ever. Weekday dinners can be a valuable opportunity for parents and kids to check in with each other, sharing the highs and lows of the day around a nourishing meal. Unfortunately, though, the reality of dinnertime may not always meet this ideal, because it can be hard to squeeze cooking a family dinner into the long list of everything else that needs to get done. 

What do you do on the nights when soccer practice ran late, the kids needed extra homework help, or an unexpected crisis on a project kept you at work past when you would normally wrap up for the day? Or those days when you’re simply so tired at the end of the afternoon, that the thought of cooking and then cleaning up afterward, knowing there’s still bedtime to get through, is overwhelming? 

Short on Time or Energy?

When dinnertime plans fall apart, it’s common to reach for fast, easy solutions that can come with a side order of guilt: processed convenience foods, a swing past a drive-through on the way home, or a last-minute call for takeout. Worse, having the family routine thrown off can mean dinner ends up being eaten in front of the TV or with everyone on electronic devices. 

Nobody should feel bad about having only two hands and twenty-four hours in a day—it’s genuinely tough to balance home, work, and kids, and families deserve all the support they can get.
