Salmon on a plate with blood oranges.
After a hectic day, many people detest the thought of preparing a meal for themselves or their family. However, creating a delicious meal doesn’t have to be time consuming or expensive.
These four recipes can be prepared in under 30 minutes for less than $25.
Still not convinced? Food prepared at home is healthier than restaurant dishes. When people cook most of their meals at home, they consume fewer carbohydrates, less sugar and less fat than those who cook less or not at all – even if they are not trying to lose weight.
Try one of these dishes tonight!
