The alternate headline for this post was “10 of the Best Basic (Lazy) Mom Meals.” But seeing as how I am triggered by any insinuation, even jokey ones, that moms are lazy—because, hello, the mental labor we do while sleeping just to figure out how we are going to get Child 1 to and from soccer while Children 2 and 3 have piano, basketball, a giant hole in their sneakers, and an ongoing breakdown about a “sore elbow”—we went with this instead. (Plus, dads do a lot—we see you!—and they deserve easy meal ideas, too.)

It is reasonable—not lazy—if we don’t have the bandwidth to create culinary masterpieces every freaking night, don’t you think? So, raise your hand if you are not a domestic god or goddess who meal-plans in advance and always knows what’s for dinner. All ye who stare into the deep abyss of your refrigerator every night at five o’clock and softly whisper “Fuck!”—we’ve got you.

Here I shall bequeath you 10 of the easiest and quickest healthy recipes I know (short of hot dogs, DoorDash, or just eating cheese, all of which I also find acceptable). And listen: This is not another “Easy Weeknight Meals!” article featuring deconstructed pear pork chops. No ma’am, we know you better than that.
