23 Healthy Leftover Recipes to Feed Your Family

I don't know about you but with 4 hungry kids, I don't like food going to waste. I also like to cook in the least amount of time possible. Using leftovers to create a new meal are perfect for both!

Except I often struggle to find tasty and creative things to do with them! 

Until today!

How to Get into the Habit of Using Leftovers

I find that the best way to use leftovers is when you have a handful of known and loved recipes that you can know you can use. For example, after cooking a chicken, you could make stock and use it for either soup or risotto. You could use the meat to make either a chicken salad or a chicken pie.

If the soup, risotto, chicken salad and chicken pie are easy for you, you'll feel like they're a good option. If you have to go off and "work out" how to make a new meal, it will just feel like too much work.

Book mark this page. (If you sign up for the "Boost" you'll find it in your "membership site".) Find one recipe that you think your family will like. 

Set a date to make it.

Don't be discouraged if they don't like it! It takes time for people (partners and children) to get used to new foods and new ideas.

Come back and try a new recipe.

Some recipes will be an instant hit, others you might not like.
