Sim­ple, Sat­is­fy­ing

Week­night So­lu­tions

Riverbank News - - PERSPECTIVE -

Hec­tic day­time sched­ules can of­ten lead to even busier evenings, which makes putting din­ner on the ta­ble in less than an hour a valu­able time-saver for home chefs. Bal­anc­ing a busy life­style with healthy food choices can cer­tainly be­come a tall task, but mak­ing fill­ing, nu­tri­tious meals a pri­or­ity starts with plan­ning and prepa­ra­tion.

One way to set the course to­ward more qual­ity week­night meals at home is plan­ning in ad­vance rather than mak­ing day-of de­ci­sions. En­sur­ing you have the cor­rect in­gre­di­ents on-hand can make meal prep a sim­pler process once it’s time to get started in the kitchen.

By fo­cus­ing meals on recipes that in­cor­po­rate easy-to-use, versatile in­gre­di­ents like Filippo Be­rio vine­gars, you can have fla­vor­ful main cour­ses, sides and ap­pe­tiz­ers ready in un­der an hour. The vine­gars are al­ler­gen free, choles­terol free, trans fat free and GMO free, mak­ing them an ideal ad­di­tion to healthy menus.

For ex­am­ple, while wait­ing for a meal to bake, Green Bean, As­para­gus and Goat Cheese Salad with Honey Di­jon Vinai­grette can keep ap­petites at bay and help in­cor­po­rate nu­tri­tious veg­eta­bles.

Fol­low your salad with a main dish like this Honey-Bal­samic Glazed Salmon, which in­volves just a hand­ful of in­gre­di­ents and sea­son­ings, lead­ing to just 5 min­utes of prep time and 20 min­utes in the oven. Greek-Style Roasted Sweet Potato Salad makes for an ideal com­ple­men­tary side dish, en­hanced with a red wine dress­ing made with Filippo Be­rio Red Wine Vine­gar for a pleas­antly sharp taste that’s a wel­come ad­di­tion to an ar­ray of recipes.

When a light yet fill­ing meal is at­tain­able in less time, you can fo­cus on nu­tri­tious choices even on the busiest of evenings. Find more quick, sim­ple recipe ideas at Filip­poBe­
