Weeknight meals can be less of a threat if you have the chance to plan ahead. Here are 12 recipes that are on constant rotation in my house. Most can be on the table in 30 minutes (or less!) they are healthy, belly filling and also budget friendly. They make pretty big portions too, great for leftovers or if you are feeding a crowd. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Don’t forget to tag #marlameridith on Instagram if you share your creations!
