Hi loves! I wanted to brighten up your week with a helpful dinner hack + cookbook obsession I’ve been loving lately. If you’re anything like me, your days are completely filled up then all of a sudden it’s 6pm and you have hangry kids running around asking about dinner. I’d love to say that it rarely happens to me, that I plan out dinners for the whole week, but that’s just not real and any mama out there can relate. Pretty much anyone with a career, relationships, and a breathing soul can relate!
That’s why it’s so important to turn to recipes that you can always pull out at the drop of a hat. Some of my go-to’s are a simple soup dish using leftover veggies and a delicious broth or a potato, veggie + protein dish with extra superfoods (of course!). So simple! Always try to fill plates with color and you’ll be good to go. It doesn’t have to be a perfect, picture-worthy meal, just one that’s tasty and extra nourishing.
You may have seen my last post using Dr. Praeger’s Kale Veggie Burgers for some BOMB veggie wraps. I was so in love with the dish and ingredients used that I decided to look into more from them and found an amazing cookbook, Summers to Savor created + crafted by entrepreneur mama, Brenna Praeger. She truly understands that there’s just not enough time in a day and you need a reliable recipe you can depend on when days get busy and it’s already dinnertime.
It has so many SIMPLE and nourishing meals for moms, dads, and the kiddos. Whether you’re making something for yourself, for your boo, or maybe for the whole fam there are endless recipe options. All of them are filled with nutrient-dense ingredients and are perfect for feeding + nourishing growing bodies. We decided to make the Sweet Potato Grilled Cheese Waffles and they were SO good! I love the Kid’s Table section - so many fun recipes and Kai can help me make them (even better!).
The cookbook is all about transitioning your summer foods to fall. It’s so beautiful + inspiring. I highly recommend, especially if you love enjoying summer flavors all year around. I partnered with Dr. Praeger's for an exciting GIVEAWAY. Two lucky winners will receive Dr. Praeger’s new cookbook, Summers to Savor, and coupons for five free products! All you need to do is follow @drpraegers and @sophie.jaffe on Instagram and share your favorite easy-to-make recipe on my latest Instagram post for a chance to win.
