Sharing an entire days worth of cooking whole food family meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Eating whole foods and cooking from scratch can be tricky at the moment. The transition from summer to the school year is not only a mental switch back into routines but during this time, we are still serving up three meals a day. I know it can be helpful and inspiring to take a peak into other families kitchens to see what they are making and that is exactly what I hope to do with these series of videos.
There are plenty more to come for sure. But today I am giving you a peak into a few meals we have been enjoying for all three meal times in our home. So in this video you will see a breakfast, lunch and a dinner. You can also find the links to any recipes made here directly from the blog below.
Some of the recipes today only require one pan. For from scratch cooking I recommend using a cast iron skillet as I use them primarily in my kitchen. They work amazingly well and last a life time. You can learn more about how to care, use, maintain cast iron cookware in this blog post.

Tips For Fast Whole Food Meals In A Pinch
Sometimes you just need a quick meal. Here are a couple ways I am able to do just that.
Rice. Make a batch of rice up and have it on hand in the fridge. You can use it for quick meals and sides. I like to pan grill a few shrimp and add some veggies for a quick whole family meal. This works especially great when you forgot to defrost meat as shrimp defrost very quickly in a quick water bath. Another great one to make with rice from the fridge is my Easy Pork Fried Rice recipe.
Frittatas make a great whole food meal that everyone loves. Since they are made with eggs which is an excellent source of protein you don’t even need to have meat thawed to make them. Try my Simple Spinach Farmhouse Frittata it makes a delicious whole family meal in no time.
Think Soups. Soups are so simple to make and most of them take very little effort. I find having a few staples on hand like bone broth, celery, carrots, onions, dried pastas, beans and rice are incredibly helpful. You can find a variety of delicious, simple soups under the Fall and Winter Eating. A few favorites are Homemade Cream of Mushroom, Homestyle Chicken and Dumplings and Creamy Tomato Pesto.
