15 Easy Meals: Ready in 30 Minutes or Less


Let's be honest, cooking a homemade meal for dinner isn't always possible. In some "Leave It To Beaver" world I would be able to have the laundry done, house clean and make a healthy homemade meal every night all while working a full time job, but I am not Joan Clever, nor do I aspire to be. Some nights we will have peanut butter sandwiches or we will order pizza because that's life. But on the nights that I want to make a meal, haven't planned ahead and we are already hangry, I like to use some of these quick and healthy-ish recipes to have dinner ready in thirty minutes or less. So put down the take out menu and believe me when I tell you that you CAN cook dinner from start to finish in less time than it would take to get food delivered.

Here are 15 of my favorite 30 minute meals:
