Easy Weekday Dinner

The struggle is real when it comes to prepping a weekday meal. Time’s limited and the last thing you want to do is spend a lot of time in the kitchen after work- I don’t know about you but I get HANGRY when I’m I have to wait to eat.

This meal is super easy to make and requires few ingredients for each portion and bonus, it’s healthy and tasty! You could also serve these items up separately and add it to your daily routine.
