It’s hard to eat healthy this time of year. With all the holiday feasts and parties, free flowing cocktails, and sweets laying around, I find it difficult to keep my hand out of the cookie jar, so to speak.

We do our best to eat clean healthy meals most days, then splurge a little on the weekends. However during the holiday season, the splurge days seems to leak into the rest of the week.

Lately I’ve been making a lot of one-pot skillet meals. Dinners that can be quickly thrown together after a long day of work and/or after school activities, and don’t make a lot of dishes for me to clean up.

It’s easy to create an endless array of quick skillet meals if you keep a few go-to items in your freezer and pantry… Chicken, ground beef, pasta, canned tomatoes, peppers, onions, and rice and quinoa are a good start.
