Fall is always so exciting to me since the changing of the seasons reminds me of back to school and new things coming up. All that excitment and newness of fall often means that my time in the kitchen gets a little shorter along with the shorter days. For weeks where you just don’t have time to batch cook or need a quick meal in a jiff, I’ve got a few go-tos that are quick, simple, and use common ingredients. Bonus points if you’re able to prep and cook veggies and grains on your batch cooking day. But don’t sweat it if you’re starting from scratch since each of these 10 healthy suppers can be made in 30 minutes or less. Keep reading for the round-up!

Super Suppers

Try to say that one 10 times fast! Each of these really are super suppers because they can be made super quick and are made of only whole food ingredients to keep you healthy and feeling amazing. If you’re looking for more protein content, add a plant-based protein topping to a soup or salad to beef up the protein content. And these are all great for storing in an airtight glass container and eating for lunch the next day! You’ll really be a hero with these recipes.
