But now I don’t discriminate; I love them all: fish tacos, chicken tacos, steak tacos, vegetarian tacos, even easy egg tacos for breakfast! </p> <p>Are you ready to shake up your taco-night routine?

They’re the ultimate budget-shopper’s protein (at less than 40 cents each), last longer than any cut of meat and can help you make the most of your miscellaneous fridge finds.</p> <p>Wilting greens? Sauté them with some sliced onion and finely chopped garlic and they become the perfect meal when topped with a poached egg. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/need_an_easy_dinner_put_an_egg_on_it#comments Food Blog Breakfast Carolyn Malcoun Dinner Family meals Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Tue, 04 Nov 2014 15:59:55 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 284396 at http://www.eatingwell.com Why Turkey Sausage Is a Weeknight-Dinner Lifesaver http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/why_turkey_sausage_is_a_weeknight_dinner_lifesaver <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/why_turkey_sausage_is_a_weeknight_dinner_lifesaver" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MP8293_Ardito.JPG" alt="Why Turkey Sausage Is a Weeknight-Dinner Lifesaver Blog Post" title="Why Turkey Sausage Is a Weeknight-Dinner Lifesaver Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>I love sausage. More important, my 2-year-old daughter loves sausage, so if I can add it to something I’m cooking, there’s a good chance she’ll gobble it up. But we try to be mindful of what we eat, so I opt for turkey sausage. </p> <p>Why? Nutritionally speaking, it’s a leaner choice than pork sausage, with roughly half the calories and only one-fifth the saturated fat per serving. In terms of flavor, I think they’re almost equal: like pork, turkey sausage spices up every dish it meets with a savory blast. So I always keep healthy links of turkey sausage in my freezer. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/why_turkey_sausage_is_a_weeknight_dinner_lifesaver#comments Food Blog Carolyn Malcoun Dinner Family meals Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Tue, 04 Nov 2014 14:41:54 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 284393 at http://www.eatingwell.com Make-Ahead Breakfasts to Grab and Go http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/make_ahead_breakfasts_to_grab_and_go <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/make_ahead_breakfasts_to_grab_and_go" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/BR8725_Norman_0.JPG" alt="Make-Ahead Breakfasts to Grab and Go Blog Post" title="Make-Ahead Breakfasts to Grab and Go Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>No matter how hard I try to be organized, I’m always scrambling to get out the door in the morning. </p> <p>There are lunches to make, school supplies to organize, the question of “Do I need to defrost anything for dinner?” to answer.
