One pot meals are an easy way to get a nutritious meal on the table for your family without making a huge mess. Being able to cook everything in one pan really simplifies the dinner making process. I love cooking. It’s relaxing, it allows me to experiment with new flavors, and it challenges me to present my kids with fruits and veggies in a way that they would actually be willing to eat them.

What I don’t love so much is cleaning up the kitchen.

I get so excited recreating recipes or creating my own, that I almost always end up with several dirty pots and pans in need of cleaning. But, after a nice meal, what I really want to do is relax and talk with my family, not clean up a bunch of pots and pans. Does anyone actually enjoy cleaning the kitchen?! That’s why I love one pot meals. Less clean up, yes please!

One-pot meals (as known as one-pot wonders) allow me to cooking a healthy meal for my family and spend less time cleaning up! All I have to do is measure out and chop my ingredients, throw them in the pot and watch them turn into a delicious meal.
