Who wants to spend an hour making dinner after spending 10 hours at work? Not this gal, that’s for sure. If I have to choose between a really great meal that takes me over an hour to prepare or a plate of scrambled eggs and toast that takes 10 minutes to prepare, I’m going with the eggs and toast every single time — especially if it’s a weeknight. Who’s with me? I thought so.
But eating eggs and toast for dinner day after day after day really is no way to live. So to make all of our lives a little bit more delicious without sacrificing a boatload of time, we’ve rounded up five healthy and delicious dinner recipes that come together in no more than 30 minutes.

I am a big fan of veggie bowls. They are generally pretty simple to throw together, incredibly filling and, often times, you can make a big batch of them at once and chow down on them for dinner for a few days in a row. They’re simple, practical and delicious — what’s not to love?
So for this weeks recipes, we bring you five veggie bowls that will seriously blow your mind. They’re super yummy, seasonal, and probably some of the most colorful meals you’ve ever seen in a while. Bonus: We’ve even thrown a Chipotle copycat recipe in the mix. Happy cooking, friends!
