Have Breakfast for Dinner This Week


Recently we surveyed our members about their cooking and eating habits. Most of you spend 30 minutes or so making dinner but only five minutes making your other meals and snacks.

Some nights, you just don't have 30 minutes. When your schedule doesn't allow enough time to make a home-cooked dinner, why not serve breakfast for supper instead? Breakfast meals tend to be fast, and ours are healthy to boot. This week's downloadable and printable menu has seven nights of suppers that are as good for you at night as they are in the morning.
