Healthy Easy Recipes

Six Ingredients or Less...Genius!

Easy recipes are must for moms. I know you’ve seen those healthy recipes that have a million ingredients and you can’t pronounce half of them. Nope, not for me, not gonna do it! I have a million things to do and slaving over the stove isn’t one of them. I need healthy easy recipes

Luckily, my friend had an incredible idea for lightening the load in the kitchen.

After the birth of her first child, she sent a mass email out to family and friends asking for easy healthy recipes of six ingredients or less. Genius!!

Not only did I do the same, but she was nice enough to share hers with me. We’re paying it forward with hopes of lightening your load…in the kitchen!
