Family-approved meals and ideas to break out of your recipe rut


With everyone spending more time at home, the pandemic has turned the family kitchen into a family restaurant, and parents are scrambling to get three tasty yet nutritious meals on the table three times a day, every day. If this sounds like you, check out these tips for food inspiration:

  • Start by exploring new pantry options, like coconut milk or bulgur wheat, to add a fun twist to classic recipes. You can also use a staple ingredient in a new way, like steak spice for a kebab rub or seasoning for meatballs and burgers.
  • Getting tired of cooking? Give yourself a welcome break and enjoy prepared meats, like ready-made veal meatballs or sausage, hot dogs and cold cuts. There’s no waste and are ready to use for easy meals and snacks the whole family can appreciate.
  • Keep meal planning simple with healthy pairings. Learn a few new sides with grains and veggies and combine them with nutrient-rich proteins. As a good source of iron, zinc, choline and B vitamins, red meat is a great option that supports physical and mental health.
  • You may not be able to go on vacation, but you can explore new tastes right in your own backyard. Try this delicious grilling steak with refreshing summer watermelon is such a unique combination of flavours!
