Finding the time and energy to pull together a savory, nutritious meal every night can be a challenge. Though it’s tempting to reach for the delivery menu, you know your diet and your wallet will regret it in the morning. Don’t let dinner be an added stressor in your life—with these easy one-pot meals, you can have it all… and still feel great in the morning.
