5 Hearty Dinners to Help You Feel Satisfied

This month, we welcome back Marta Rivera for more of her meal plans. Marta is a trained chef, mom of twins and Army wife, and a Simply Recipes recipe tester and developer!

I’m on a mission with this week’s meal plan to celebrate all things YOU. Shocking to think of putting oneself first, isn’t it?

A hearty meal is what makes things feel right in my world. It gives me a deep sense of appreciation because I know I’m making good use of the bounty I’ve received. I’m hoping the same is true for you.

This year has been one for the record books. I know I’ve been consumed with thoughts of others: Is my family safe? How are my neighbors holding up? What’s going to happen to our community?

With all of that worry, I have often felt lost in the shuffle and I’m sure you have as well, but caretakers also have to take care of themselves. When was the last time you thought about what YOU wanted for dinner? Which meals will bring you comfort? Which will meals will bring you less stress and more joy?

I’m going to take a little time this month to help you focus on filling comfort food recipes that take advantage of the fresh root vegetables in season, as well as hearty winter veggies like broccoli and cabbage.
