7 Super Simple Meals - with 7 Ingredients or less



People are busier than ever these days, and that means we’re eating out more, consuming more processed foods, and preparing fewer healthy meals at home.

These quick and easy recipes give you 7 delicious options for dinner this week.


Like I teach my clients, with a little planning, you can still eat healthy and save money without taking hours to prepare a meal. In fact, if you double each recipe, you’ll have leftovers for lunch or another dinner. Yay for time efficiency!


Be sure to join me over in my Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/JoyfulMumTribe/) where I share more simple healthy living tips every day.


I hope you love the recipes.

Enjoy!
