20 Easy Dinner Recipes I Rely on When I Don’t Feel like Cooking

No matter what I do or where I am in my life, it’s absolutely inevitable that a couple of times a week, I just do not feel like cooking. But a girl’s gotta eat (and doesn’t always want to order takeout), so an arsenal of easy dinner recipes has a permanent spot in my brain for when I just can’t muster up the will to really cook.

It’s easy to turn to scrambled eggs or PB&J for those dreaded nights, but I’m here to inform you that there are better options out there. You can easily throw together simple meals that require little to no effort but will give you a bit more oomph (and ideally, more nutritional value). Hitting that sweet spot between minimal effort and filling you up is key, and the balance is one that can be mastered with a bit of trial and error (and for me, the help of my air fryer).

Looking for some go-to, simple recipes to add to your weekly rotation? We’ve got you covered with 20 easy dinner recipes you can turn to any night of the week.
