Meal Inspirations | Recipes for Busy Moms

This post was sponsored by Lunchbox. All opinions are my own.

As much as I’d love to prepare five course meals for my family, the reality is I barely have time to grocery shop let alone plan elaborate meals. In my effort to avoid prepackaged or fast food I try to prepare easy homemade meals that are not only delicious but nutritious as well. I also try to avoid repeating meals too close together to avoid boredom.

What’s a Mom to do?

Thankfully Walmart has created Meal Inspirations – an online destination that provides quick, easy and delicious recipe ideas for busy moms.

On Meal Inspirations, you can find featured recipes for everything from weeknight dinner ideas to tailgating classics. You can also get coupons and exclusive deals to save on the ingredients!

Featured Recipes

UNI_MI_SocialAsset1

Some of the recipes featured on the Meal Inspirations site include:

Weeknight Dinner Ideas:

  • Parmesan Crusted Chicken
  • Creamy Shrimp Alfredo
  • Easy Mac & Cheese Veggie Chicken Casserole

Game Day Classics:

  • Buffalo Blue Cheese Chicken Dip
  • Creamy Hot Chipotle Dip

Fall Comfort Food:

  • Family Favorite Chili Mac
  • Mama’s Favorite Ever Spaghetti & Meatballs
  • Hearty Beef Chili

I decided to dive in and try one of the recipes from the site. I sifted through to find something everyone would like… my husband doesn’t eat meat and my older son can be a bit picky.

I found the stuffed zucchini recipe.. it looked appetizing, was vegetarian and easily modified for “likes” and “dislikes”.
