6 Easy Recipes to Get Back into Routine

As life picks up the pace with the return to work and school, the thought of cooking may feel daunting after a long day. But fear not! With a bit of planning and clever recipe selection, eating well doesn’t have to be a chore. These fresh and simple recipes full of the season’s finest wonky wonders are here to save the day.

Plan Ahead

Kickstart your week with a batch of nutritious snacks prepared in advance. Spending a little time over the weekend whipping up easy-to-grab goodies is well worth it when you’ve suddenly only got 15 minutes for lunch. Not only does meal prep save time, but it also prevents the temptation of reaching for sugary snacks when the afternoon slump hits. Trust us, your mid-week self will thank you!

Recipes to Try:

  • Lunch Box Veggie Spaghetti Muffins: These vegetarian muffins are the ultimate grab-and-go lunchbox fillers, perfect for keeping you or your little ones fueled throughout the week. The best part? They’re super versatile, so you can chop and change the vegetables weekly!
  • Leek, Avocado & Feta Frittata: Whether it's breakfast, lunch, or a snack on the run, this protein-packed frittata has you covered. Enjoy a slice hot or cold for a satisfying meal anytime, anywhere.
  • Supergreen Lunchbox Pinwheels: These pinwheels are a hit with young and old alike! With sweet and savory filling suggestions, you'll never get sick of this fun take on lunchtime wraps.
