With back to school just around the corner, we’re all starting to think about how we can best navigate our families’ busy schedules and minimize the stress we feel as we rush through the day. One of the best ways to keep that stress to a minimum is to get into the routine of meal prep with some quick and easy back-to-school recipes. In fact, we recommend developing a rotation of back-to-school recipes. The key advantage of having this list of back-to-school recipes is that, with a bit of repetition, you’ll get efficient at making them. Grocery shopping becomes much simpler, too, when you’re looking for the same ingredients each week.
So how can you create your own list of back-to-school recipes? Let us get you started with four of our favourites!
