3 Super-Fast Healthy Fall Recipes

If you are anything like me, you are always looking for ways to make overall healthy choices while not spending your whole night in the kitchen. Here are my 3 favorite family-friendly, super-fast weeknight fall meal combinations to try:

  1. Butternut Chicken Sausage Soup
    a. Pacific Foods Light Sodium Organic Creamy Butternut Squash Soup
    b. Isernio’s Chicken Sausage
    c. Spices to taste
    d. Side mixed salad greens with vinaigrette or dressing of choice (try the fork-trick dipping method)
  2. 10-minute Stir-Fry
    a. Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower Stir-Fry
    b. Pre-cooked chicken skewers or high-protein tofu – Wildwood and Trader Joe’s brands work well
    c. Sauce of choice (we love powdered peanut butter mixed with peanut-style vinaigrette dressings)
  3. Guilt-Free Sandwiches
    a. Outer Aisle Plantpower Sandwich Thins
    b. Tuna salad (Wild Planet canned albacore tuna mixed with avocado mayo)
    c. Side pear or orange slices
    d. Salad kit of choice: Taylor Farms, Fresh Express, Kroger brands all work well (hint – add an extra bag of spinach greens to reduce the amount of toppings per serving)

With a little creativity and modification you can turn your family’s favorite fall staples into quick and easy meals that are overall more balanced than their traditional counterparts. Enjoy!
