Like most of you, we eat like humans in our house. Which is to say, for stretches of days we’re all homemade whole grain salads, lean-meat mains, and practically swimming in our leafy greens. And then, just as predictably, there are the stretches when, you know, life takes over, when it’s just easier to throw something — anything — from the freezer into a 425°F oven; when there are meatball sliders and fudgey birthday cakes, snow days that turn into baking-paloozas, and Abby’s soccer tournaments that have me driving right by the original Nathan’s Famous in Brooklyn…so what am I not going to have hot dogs and crinkle cut fries served with the cute little red fork? I’ve learned not to beat myself up for this given that redemption is so easy to come by, namely with a healthy dinner battle plan always waiting in the wings. It’s a line-up of easy meals that, for the most part, the whole family likes, that I can always fall back on to right the ship and the link to one of them is below. It is not a diet plan. It’s a real life dinner plan for real life humans. I hope you enjoy it.
