5 Easy Weekend Dinners to Make in January
The post-holiday slump of early January is very real, and I find that no matter how much I plan and keep myself busy, I fall into it anyway. Instead of fighting it, I just focus on the basics: staying well-nourished and hydrated is at the top of that list. It’s tempting to turn to frozen foods and ready-made meals when I don’t feel like myself, but when I take this route, I often find myself leaving the table feeling unsatisfied.
These five easy dishes tick all the boxes I want to cook and eat this time of year: low effort, accessible ingredients (or things you already have in the pantry), high in protein, quick and easy to make, and big on flavor. Everything is made in-house, so nothing relies too heavily on processed or comforting ingredients to leave you feeling empty. These dishes can’t solve your winter sorrows, but they sure help!
