When someone is sick, grieving, had a new baby, etc, I like to bring something fresh and healthy, like grilled chicken tenders with roasted vegetables, wild rice, fresh fruit or artisan bread. If they have young children or picky eaters, a “build your own” taco bar with taco chicken, ground beef, or sweet pulled pork with good tortillas and all the sides (salsa, pico, guac, rice, refried beans).
This is difficult because we have lot’s of healthy dinner recipes, but lately i’m obsessed with these Spring Roll Bowls!
