This past week the weather felt cooler, and the leaves started falling. During this time of the year I start wanting to eat delicious comfort food, but I am also trying to make healthier choices to set a good example for my kids. Today, I want to share 3 simple fall meal ideas. They are healthy, delicious and super easy to make.
These meal ideas were inspired by items I received in a Babbleboxx. It was full of delicious but healthy options. First up is the New RAGÚ® Simply Chunky Marinara Pasta Sauce.
The New RAGÚ® Simply Chunky Marinara Pasta Sauce is made with 100% olive oil. It has no added sugar which makes this a great choice for a healthy and delicious weeknight recipe. Each bite you savor has plump tomatoes, onions, garlic and spices. You get great flavor with a simple recipe, that I feel good serving to my family. I made two recipes with this sauce, three cheese creamy pasta, and low carb pizza.

On The Go Breakfast
The last simple meal I want to talk about are these Superfood Veggie Cakes and Blueberry Oat Muffins made by Garden Lites. Kenny liked the Garden Lites Superfood Veggie Cakes. It is packed with nutrient-rich superfood veggies like Kale & Cauliflower. The Veggie Cakes are Gluten Free and less than 100 calories. Heat the Superfood Veggie Cakes up in the toaster oven for a deliciously crisp snack, breakfast or side dish!
My favorite was the Garden Lites Blueberry Oat Muffin, and you will never believe the first ingredient. Zucchini. I couldn’t even taste it. After thirty second in the microwave, you get to enjoy a delightful Blueberry packed experience for only 110 calories. Plus it is allergy-friendly, Gluten, Dairy & Nut Free! It makes a great on the go breakfast, snack or dessert. They are perfect to send in your child’s lunchbox, they can defrost them at eat at room temperature for a deliciously sweet treat.
Prestyn has been in a state of not eating very many vegetables, he used to eat them all the time but not anymore. He loves fruit, meat and grains but veggies not so much. He LOVED the blueberry oat muffin, and I loved that he got some vegetables while eating it. Best part, he didn’t even realize there were hidden veggies.

These are perfect to serve for breakfast with Medium Roast Classic Blend Coffee from Red Diamond. During fall I enjoy drinking my coffee hot with a splash of creamer outside.
Red Diamond offers the perfect cup of coffee, because their beans are grown at only a high altitude, hand picked sun-dried and roasted in small batches. Every patch of the Classic Blend is handled with extreme care to make sure the coffee has a smooth and rich flavor. Red Diamond never skimps or cuts corners when it comes to the production of coffee and tea. An 11 oz. bag of Red Diamond Classic Blend Ground Coffee came in my Babbleboxx and I was so excited to take a big whiff of it right out of the box.
