Summer sure was fun, wasn’t it? Ready or not, it is time to move on.
September means it is time to get back into a routine – whether that means back to school, back to healthy eating or back to regular family meals. This transitional month calls for meal planning made easy. Each week, we are going to share recipes that are simple to prepare and get on the table featuring artisan products that will ensure that your meals are crowd pleasers.
We’ve got recipes for lunch, entrees, sides, desserts and snacks. And we’ve got plenty of creative ideas for gluten-free, vegetarian and kid-friendly options too.
Lunches: Don’t skip (or scrimp) on your lunch! We have ideas for healthy, tasty (and gluten-free) lunches you can prepare in minutes. Incorporating items like ready-to-eat empanadas from Cassava and farinatas from The Farinata Project into your meal planning saves time without sacrificing quality or taste. Add your own twist by creating a quick sauce or salad to accompany these light meals. Perfect eats for busy days on the go.
Sides: Looking for ideas for flavorful accompaniments to round out your meal? Skip the tired old side dishes (who wants mashed potatoes again any way?). Bacon from Mr. Spanky’s Artisanal Foods and Spicemode sauces both infuse big flavor into our veggie-based side dish recipes.
Entrees: Our recipe section is brimming with big, bold ideas for fall entrees featuring Red Meat Market proteins and The Flavor, Stephanie Izard’s new line of rubs and sauces.
On those nights when cooking dinner just isn’t an option (yes, we get that you are busy), rely on the nutritious and delicious ready-to-eat meals from new vendor Factor 75. The folks behind this personal chef service have taken your favorite dishes and reengineered them with healthier ingredients without sacrificing any of the taste. We can deliver single meals or specially packaged meal bundles to you each week.
Desserts: We understand that you are busy, but everyone has time for dessert, right? We’ve got recipe inspiration to satisfy every sweet tooth. Keep ready-to-eat items like Jaafer baklava and other sweets on hand for the perfect ending to your meal. Pair with a cup of Ipsento coffee on chilly fall evenings.
Snacks: Looking for a convenient and healthy post workout or afterschool snack? We can help with that too! We have a selection of healthy options that will fuel you up so you can go, go go. Both Twofold and Simple Squares offer portable, healthy snack options with exception taste and nutritional value. Grab and go or incorporate these products into your snack routine at home.
It is going to be a delicious month here at Artizone! Our goal is to make getting delicious and healthy meals on the table for your family easier. We can’t wait to share our recipes and ideas with you. Follow along at #artizonemakeameal.
