Trying New Recipes

Trying New Recipes

Have you ever been guilty of scrolling through Pinterest or various food sites pinning every recipe that sounds good to you? You would be surprised how many of those recipes end up on your board and never on your plate!

What makes up the gap between having an interest in a recipe and actually making it? A PLAN! Planning out your meals for the week takes 5-10 minutes and can save hours of time. Pro Tip: Don’t come up with 10 new recipes to try per week. It tends to be overwhelming and often ends with frustration and high grocery bills. Try one new breakfast, lunch, or dinner recipe per week. Once you feel comfortable with a recipe and can easily reproduce it, it becomes one of your staples.

Usual Breakfast: Oatmeal with walnuts and blueberries 

New Recipe: Egg Muffins with spinach, tomato, and feta

Usual Lunch: Peanut butter and jelly sandwich on wheat with vegetables and hummus

New Recipe: Quinoa salad

Usual Dinner: Ground Beef Tacos

New Recipe: Crockpot turkey meatballs over pasta
