Coming up with an easy healthy dinner recipe when you’re feeling under the weather is definitely a challenge, believe me, I know! I planned to get the flu vaccine this year because I had a nasty flu last year that knocked me out. But guess what happened? I got the flu a few days before my vaccine. My entire family got it! It started with little princess, then went to husband, then it landed in my body. It is not fun being sick, especially when you are a mother and a household chief. Everything goes upside down. Kids and husband help but still.
While I tried to rest as much as I can, I had to feed myself and the crowd. The dinners had to be easy and quick. Like really quick. Less than 30 minutes. 15 minutes were my maximum time I could stand in the kitchen. Luckily, Patak’s came to the rescue. They have an array of cooking sauces that will help you whip an easy healthy dinner recipe with ingredients you have in hand.
So I made the following easy healthy dinner recipe. Of course kids asked for more and of course I did not make enough because I was too tired to make the right amount in the first place, so I had to make it another time.
