Get your family back to the dinner table with these quick and healthy meal options

Mass Appeal

(Mass Appeal) – September is National Family Meals Month. Registered dietitians Andrea Luttrell and Carrie Taylor from Big Y World Class Market join us with some inspiration for two fast weeknight meals. Their recipes for Caprese Chicken Bake and Fish Street Tacos are below.

Big Y also offers a large selection of convenient meal ingredients. Their rotisserie chicken is delicious on its own but it can also be used in many different entrees. Prepared pizza dough can be used for a “make your own pizza” night sure to please the whole family.

Fresh seafood also makes for a quick home-cooked dinner. Most fish cooks in under 10 minutes! You can add some frozen ravioli or vegetables or a salad mix to finish off your quick meal.

Big Y also offers free nutrition tours and special events. Visit for more information.
