Easy dinner ideas to make your life easier

1. 2 Ingredient Homemade Pizza Dough

Brooke Jones was preparing her family a late dinner and she was running out of time, so pulled together this delicious pizza.

She rustled up the pizza dough and added her own toppings of pesto, tomato, spinach, salami, and cheese.

“So easy and delicious. After a few days of overindulging it is just what I need!” she says.  

What a great and yummy dinner, and something the kids will definitely say yes to! You can grab the recipe here.

2. Tabouli with Lemon Pepper Squid

Melanie Arnold-Stemm made this delicious meal and loved it!

“Using the tabouli from one of next week’s recipes, as a side for lemon pepper squid, and all I can say is YUM!” she says.

She made enough for lunch the next day too!

The recipe for both the tabouli and lemon pepper squid can be found in the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge recipe hub.

3. Smashed Egg with Mayo Wrap

Tash Scheidegger says that sometimes we forget how simple our eating can be.

Eating healthy doesn’t always have to be expensive, “I just made smashed egg with mayo and used lettuce as a wrap. Was delicious!” Tash says.

“Eating healthy can cost you money but eating unhealthily can cost you your life,” she explains.

4. Roasted Cauliflower Nachos

“It’s the Asian Vegetarian Stir Fry from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meal plan here tonight but I’ve added some chicken that was in my freezer stash and used the cauliflower to make rice to serve it with!  Stir fries are one of my favourite quick and easy, yet fabulously cheap go to meals!” she says of her delicious meal.

Lauren Kolstad says this is the only thing her 2-year-old will eat without fail, she added a few extra veggies to boot!

“Hoisin pork with rice and greens (we added a few different veggies) is hands down the only meal that Zoe my 2-year-old will eat every single time without fail. 

She’ll often love a meal one week and won’t touch it the next time. Such is life with my crazy kid! 

But this meal – clean plates every single time.”

This recipe can be found as part of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
