To try to be more healthy and transition to a more balanced lifestyle our family has made some changes to several things, including our food. Now Aila and my mom cook breakfast, I cook lunch, and my mom cooks dinner. As I have been cooking every day I wanted to make a list of the recipes and dishes that I cook and add to it whenever I can.

In this article I will be adding all the recipes I cook for lunch for my family. Most of the time I just look in our fridge and then come up with something random. The recipes usually take 15-30 minutes to make and are super easy if you cook things like chicken and other things ahead of time so all you have to do is throw everything together. I designed a weekly meal plan in Canva that you can use as well to just plan out what you are going to make for the week:
