How was work? What did you learn at school today? Gathering around the table with your family is more than just a way to satisfy hunger. It’s an opportunity to catch up with loved ones, bond, and share fun conversation.

We know that there are many factors that can make family meals seem difficult – having limited time to cook, conflicting family member schedules, budget constraints, and so on. However, we at Green Valley are certain that with the right recipes, frequent family meals can be easy.

As always, we’re here to help. Our team hit the kitchen and developed custom recipes that are easy, affordable, and packed with nutritious ingredients. See the full list below:
