Summer has officially begun! This means I’m spending as little time in the kitchen as possible. It’s hot, my kids are out of school, and the beach is calling us—so….easy healthy dinner recipes to the rescue! Lately I’m finding that simple is better. Actually, in almost all things in life, simple is better ūüôā As far as dinner goes I’m not stressing about the menu these days. I find my kids are really loving EASY things like cut up cucumbers, sugar snap peas, apples, or carrots. Add a little protein and healthy starch and dinner is DONE! Tonight they had organic bacon (a request from my son), gluten-free pasta with red sauce and cut up veggies. Dinner took me all of 15 minutes to make and my kids couldn’t have been happier.

So this summer, let’s all take a vow to make easy healthy dinners for our kids without spending too much time stressing, or too much time in the kitchen. Sound good?

To get you started, my favorite bloggers lent me their best easy healthy dinner recipes. I hope these dinner ideas give you inspiration for the summer ahead. Bon appetite!
