The IDCO Weekly Recipe Roundup + Shopping List

For so long, we’ve been looking for a resource that offered balanced, delicious meals that were relatively quick and came with a ready-to-shop grocery list. We know so many of you are business working professionals or entrepreneurs like us and find yourself eating take-out or snacks for dinner more often than you’d like. Nutrition is so important, and your work truly depends on your health and mental focus.

All that said, starting now, we are rolling out a weekly menu with seven tried-and-true recipes: four simple weeknight meals, a brunch recipe, one treat, and something to bake for a neighbor or friend. We are so excited to share some of our favorite meals with all of you and can’t wait to hear what you think of them! Attached, you’ll find a full grocery list. This list will not include pantry staples like butter, oil, flour, salt, and pepper, so be sure to take stock before you head to the store (or to your favorite grocery delivery app).

Weeknight Favorites

 

 

For us, a weeknight meal means ready in under an hour, not too indulgent, and really good. All of these check those boxes + make great lunch leftovers if you’re into that.
