weekday dinners

Hi Everyone! I'm looking for some quick dinner ideas for week nights for me and my family. What are you favorites? Thanks!

    Other than a big salad, I really like this for a good dinner option:

    Alfredo Zucchini with Peas & Peppers


    I've never tried it, but this also looks very nice.


    Another idea would be to use up any left overs from the weekend or you could do tacos with veggies, salsa, guac, walnut 'meat' in lettuce wraps.

    Hope this helps.

  • Thanks sv3, I'll try them out! Options are always good. I could probably have a salad for dinner almost every night but my husband and daughter are not there yet. Dinner has become a challange for me during the week. I'm exauhsted when I get home from work but still need to feed my family and I want to give them food that is good for them you know. Now that I know the nutritional value of raw foods it's hard to serve them something I know is not good for them. It would be so easy to just boil some pasta and throw on some tomato sauce from a jar (my daughers favorite quick meal or cook vegies and quinao w beans for my husband (his staple dinner) so that he feels full. I find my self comming home from work and looking at a fridge full of veggies but not sure how to throw them together to make a meal for them.

  • what you could do is make some kind of pate (theyre all over this website) and make enough to last the week. it could be wrapped up with some lettuce/collard/kale and all the usual raw garnishes and on a salad for you. it's pretty simple and filling since it's nut based. green smoothies are fast, too.

  • Thanks ofthesea! Do you know how long pate stays good for in the fridge?

    Oh yeah, I've made some lovely pates and they should last between 3-5 days in the fridge.

    This is one of my favs:
