Finding family-friendly meals that keep you on track with your goals while satisfying partners, children, parents, and friends can feel like an incredible task. You want to eat foods that will fuel you but it’s hard to do that when you feel like you need to make a different meal for each family member. We get it. The key is in finding quality healthy recipes that the whole household will love, and it is easier than you might think, thanks to people like Danielle.

Danielle Rivoli is a wife and mother of two girls (ages 2 and 4), a passionate fit-foodie and gym-bunny, a breastfeeding counselor, and Instagram powerhouse. She has participated in FOUR of my challenges and shown thousands of women what is possible with hard work and consistency. Danielle is no stranger to feeling limited in the kitchen but throughout her fitness journey, she has compiled a great list of her top 10 favorite family-friendly meals.

When cooking for my family I always make sure to find flavor packed recipes, for the whole family to enjoy! I prefer not having to cook separate meals for everyone. So I usually choose recipes I where I can double my protein portion to satisfy my macros, while also feeding my little picky eaters. I also often sub out ingredients to make things slightly more macro friendly... like, coconut oil instead of butter, chicken stock instead of wine, lettuce wraps instead of pitas if I would like rice instead, fat free or thin sliced cheese, egg whites instead of eggs, and so on.
