Healthy-But-Doable Weeknight Dinners
Detox month is over, so many of us are coming off a stricter regimen and looking to recalibrate to a more balanced routine that includes healthy habits—along with the occasional chicken wing night (hello, John Legend). Whatever your roadblock—long days at work, frantic errand-running, or dropping the kids off at soccer—Carlene Thomas, a Virginia-based registered dietitian and half of the husband-and-wife team behind the blog Healthfully Ever After, understands. Below, she shares three recipes that’ll work, no matter how crazy-busy your life. They’re delicious, super-healthy, and most importantly, totally achievable.
