Healthy One-Pot Dinner

Easy dinner ideas are hard to come by unless they come in a box, or so you thought. Here is a great idea for a quick, healthy alternative to those boxed mac and cheese recipes. You’ll be able to sneak in so many veggies your kids won’t even notice they’re eating healthy. The best thing about this meal is it is a one-pot wonder, which means it’s not only easy to make, but it’s just as easy to clean up!

Watch as Yvette shows you how fast and easy dinner preparing a healthy dinner can be in this week’s eHow video:

Check back in next week for another eHow video with Yvette.
