Mealtime can be stressful. There’s no if’s, and’s, or but’s about it! With busy schedules, sometimes choosing healthy recipes and squeezing in a trip to the grocery store is out of the question. But, in honor of National Eat Together Week, we’re challenging you to take a stab at our healthy menu and enjoy a bit of time with your family around the dinner table. After all, it’s said that family meal night can contribute to positive mental health!

All you’ll need to do is pick one night this week where the whole family can sit down together, print out our Shopping List (click here) and head to the grocery store, spend just a bit of time prepping in the kitchen, and enjoy a healthy meal with your loved ones.

If you’re like us, a sweet tooth is guaranteed after dinner! But just because you have a hankering for something sweet, doesn’t mean you have to immediately go for the cookies, cakes, or pies. Instead, add a little honey and some cinnamon to a fruit of your choice (like pears or apples) and pop it in the oven. That’s essentially all we did for this pear recipe.
