Trying to cook something tasty for family members who are picky eaters can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Even picky eaters can be enticed to try new foods if presented with them in an unexpected way. Try to have fun with it, and surprise your family with a yummy home-cooked meal.

The biggest hurdle to eating healthy is keeping kids interested and involved, especially when you’re grocery shopping on your own. But with a few simple tricks, you can surprise your family with a healthy, nutritious meal the entire family will love.

Here’s A Simple Meal to Surprise the Family:

Mac and Cheese

When you are busy and trying to get food on the table for yourself and your family, you don’t always have the time or energy to whip up a complicated meal. That’s why one easy meal that gets a lot of love around my house is mac n cheese. It can be crazy fast to make, inexpensive, and tastes delicious.

Fresh Meatballs

To offer your family the comfort that a meal brings, make a simple meal. If you have children who are picky eaters, they may enjoy a meal with selections such as fresh meatballs. Meal planning is a great way to ensure a healthy meal is ready when your family is ready to eat, planning for the week, and cooking meals that can be cooked in bulk and frozen for later use.

Golden Noodles

Are you planning a surprise for the family? A fun and delicious meal to get everyone talking, rather than thinking about the dishes or cleaning up afterward. Golden noodles are one of the most popular dishes in China and are surprisingly easy to make! Just combine cooked and cooled rice noodles, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, and cilantro. Serve with some veggies and an egg, and your meal will be ready in under 30 minutes. 

Cornbread and Broccoli

Make your family feel special when you cook them a simple meal. Surprise them with their favourite meal. My simple meal was cornbread and broccoli. I took my cornbread recipe, cooked it upside down, and filled the cornbread with broccoli. It was so simple, and it was a meal the whole family enjoyed eating. It was a great surprise. This meal is so simple, yet so tasty. Best of all, it’s full of healthy vegetables, including my favourite broccoli. Broccoli is a great source of fibre, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. In fact, broccoli contains more vitamin C than an orange, more Vitamin A than carrots, more calcium than milk, and less fat than cheese. A serving of broccoli has 200% of your daily requirement of vitamin C. Broccoli also contains fibre, and studies show that people who eat a diet high in fibre tend to weigh less.

Cheese Roast

A cheese roast is a simple recipe that is perfect for feeding the family. It is a meat product that is stuffed with a savoury cheese filling and baked in the oven. This meal can be made in advance, and it stores well. Make a large batch and then freeze leftovers for a future meal. Every family has their meals, and while many families follow certain traditional meals, there are also families that want alternatives to the traditional. One meal that is becoming popular is cheese roast, and it’s something that can be made for just about any family. It’s easy to make, it’s nutritious, and filling, and kids like it.

As the holidays approach, you likely find yourself rushing around trying to put together the perfect family gathering, complete with delicious food. However, cooking can be intimidating, especially if you’re new to the kitchen, and many people fear burning their masterpieces. Although you may have planned the perfect menu, you may feel stuck in the kitchen. By preparing simple dishes that you can make ahead of time, you can surprise the family with a hot, delicious meal that will keep you out of their way in the frenzy that is the holidays.

It can be overwhelming to plan and prepare dinner when everyone has different dietary needs, tastes and preferences. Cooking a “simple” meal doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. In addition to being easy on the eyes, a meal like spaghetti with a meat sauce can be packed with all kinds of healthy veggies and legumes.
