I’ve professed my love for the one-bowl dinner before, but I will say it again: There is absolutely nothing better than throwing all your favorite veggies into one bowl, mixing them together—probably with some quinoa or brown rice—and calling it dinner. Am I right?
So for this week’s recipes, we’ve chosen five one-bowl dinners that are filled to the brim with fresh fall veggies like kale, sweet potatoes, winter squash, spinach, pumpkin, and more. I’ve got my sights set on the Pumpkin, Pistachio and Kale Fried Rice bowl—how about you?

If your Sunday afternoon plans usually consist of watching way too many episodes of Criminal Minds (feel no shame—I’m totally with you), we’ve got a better idea: Next Sunday, October 26th, Philly Dance Fitness is hosting a Pop Divas Dance Workshop, where you will experience, and I quote, “90 minutes of nonstop hip-shaking, body-rolling, chest-popping cardio dance routines” to the tunes of everyone’s favorite pop divas like Beyoncé, Lada Gaga, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and more. See? Way more fun than a Netflix marathon.
