One-Pot Meal for the Working Mom: Quick One and Done Recipes

One-pot meal can make any working mom’s life easier. Over the weekend I tried one of these delicious one-pot meals. I am currently on vacation for the holidays and I am actually not feeling my best so this was the best time to try a recipe. I was contacted by the company to give my readers the chance to have these beautiful recipes at their fingertips. I first had to try them before I shared them. The opinions in this post are strictly my own, I was not compensated in any monetary way. I can say the meals were fast and the clean-up of is a breeze.

Why Use A One-Pot Meal

I believe in feeding my family delicious home cooks meals as often as I can. We try to reduce fast food and processed meals as often as possible. Since I have health issues, I try to watch my diet as much as I can. I am a working mother, with a tween daughter on the basketball team and some nights can get hectic. A one-pot meal can help make life a little easier.

Some days, dinner time is a breeze: There are no activities, no over-scheduling, no homework, no to-dos. But those days seem few and far between—and still your family needs to be fed a healthy meal that doesn’t cost you hours in prep, cooking, and cleanup. The solution? One-pot meals.

One-pot meals equal less of your time in the kitchen. They are stress free—both on the front end and the back end. They allow you to achieve a sense of balance in your meals—the right proportion of grains, protein, vegetables, and fruits. And even better: You can make lots of extra, freeze it, and have an even easier meal weeks from now.

Even better: One-pot meals adapt themselves to a variety of cuisines. You can make pasta, rice dishes, curries, beans, and more. In just a few simple recipes and with a few instructions, the one pot meal help you get more meals on the table—faster, more balanced, and hassle-free.
