With cooler temperatures and cozy nights, we are all craving comfort foods. The 15 Best Healthy Fall Weeknight Dinners are easy, healthy seasonal weeknight dinner recipes!
The temperatures are getting cooler. Okay, some days are cooler and some days are still blazing hot but fall is coming. Are you excited for fall or hanging on to every last drop of summer? I love summer. I really do. But, fall is my favorite season. The clothes are better. You get to wear boots and layers—and not sweat to death walking down the street.
Maybe it goes back to the beginning of a new school year but fall is a time to start fresh. I actually set more goals (and achieve them) in autumn than I do in January. I make lists of things to do. And, I feel like I’m actually busier in fall than I am in summer. Plus, it has the best holidays. My favorite holiday is Halloween, followed by Thanksgiving. So. Much. Fun.
Okay, okay, I’ll stop writing my love letter to autumn….
Summer produce can’t be beaten. It’s so delicious and full of flavor. But, I’m all about the comfort food after Labor Day. Fall produce is so delicious and filling. It’s all about the winter squash. I also try to keep it healthier during most of my meals to balance out the fall baking. Life is all about balance, right?
So, we put together the 15 Best Healthy Fall Weeknight Dinners. There are salads, soups, pasta, chicken, veggies and lots and lots of quinoa. If fall has an official pasta, it’s quinoa. Head over to your local grocer and get you some bulk quinoa. You are going to need it!
On another note, have you seen these photographs? They are crazy gorgeous. So rich and beautiful just like the food in the photos. So much talent here. All of these recipes look so delicious and are going to keep me healthy all fall season long.
