Stay home and celebrate Easter!

Stay home and celebrate Easter!
Easter is approaching quickly and we’d be remiss not to admit that it’s going to be a different kind of holiday this year. Gatherings are not permitted, which means your dinner plans should be limited to those you live with. While you won’t be able to gather with extended family, we feel strongly that the holiday should still be celebrated. Set a nice table, cook up a lovely meal and enjoy it with your spouse or immediate family. Even if you live alone, consider cooking something special and connecting with loved ones over video chat. It’s a day to be together, even if that takes a little innovation this year.

How to Grill Chicken One Time and Get 3 Different Meals – Delicious and Easy

How to Grill Chicken One Time and Get 3 Different Meals – Delicious and Easy

Life is busy. It doesn’t matter if you’re single, coupled up or raising a small herd of children - we’ve all got a lot going on, and it can be hard to find enough time (and energy!) to make a good meal. For some households, the solution is meal-prepping or batch cooking, but it’s easy to get tired of the same menu on repeat. Our suggestion? Use VG Meats to minimize cooking and still get a variety of delicious, healthy meals all week long. Here’s an example of how to grill chicken once and get three separate meals.
