The social norm is eating three meals a day; one in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one in the evening. Immediate satisfaction has become increasingly more apparent in society. This equates to quick and easy prepared meals in terms of your nutrition. For many, it’s not about the meal they are eating as much as it is about the motivation to actually cook a meal and all the anxiety which may come with it. We hope to ease the process by listing some of our favorite food blogs containing healthy, budget-friendly, dietary-specific, quick-and-easy meals to be prepared in portions of two or for the whole family.
What we like the most about this food blog is its layout. On the left-hand side, you can filter their recipes by type of meat, holiday, course, season, or features such as low-carb, gluten-free, vegan, budget-friendly, and even quick and easy. Some of their most viewed budget-friendly recipes include Shepherd’s Pie, Baked Chicken, and Chicken Piccata – which is also quick and easy!
Budget Bytes does a great job of listing recipes in terms of the type of dish such as global cuisine, pasta, sandwich, salad, etc. They also have a cool “How-to” section on their blog where you can learn specific cooking techniques such as how to make brown butter, pickled red onions, or freeze leftovers.
Pinch of Yum
A married couple partnered up to create their food blog Pinch of Yum. It’s creative and fun, and they supplement their recipes with videos. Their blog is unique in that you can separate their recipes by types of meal, including healthy, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Mixed within those categories are subcategories such as 5 ingredient dinners, slow cooker meals, and superfood meals. Their 5 Ingredient Sweet Potato Turkey Chili, Simple Hoisin Glazed Salmon, and Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream look amazing.
Naturally Ella is strictly a vegetarian food blog. However, it’s laid out in a clever way. It contains a section called “Explore an Ingredient.” This can come in handy if you have one ingredient you want to use before it goes bad. You can click on that ingredient within their blog and it will list all of the recipes involving that specific ingredient. You can also filter recipes by total time, season, diet, and meal.
Fit Food Finds
A number of people strive to be healthy. If this blog were to be classified by one word, it would definitely be “healthy.” The author of this blog lists breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and dessert recipes, all involving simple ingredients, easy to follow instructions, and quick cook times. Some meals that we think are worth trying are the One-Pan Cauliflower Nachos, Healthy Caramel Apple Cinnamon Waffles, and the Breakfast Stuffed Peppers.
