Enjoy these comforting, delicious healthy fall dinner recipes in the cooler weather! These are perfect to feed a crowd or a weeknight dinner for the family.
It’s officially November! Which means if you weren’t already putting pumpkin in everything and dusting off your slow cooker, it’s time to start now.
Isn’t fall great? The weather is not too hot, not too cold, the trees are all changing colors, and cool nights are spent watching a movie with the family drinking hot chocolate. It’s the perfect time of year!
The best part, though, may be the food. Cooler weather means hearty comfort food. Think soups, chilis, roasted veggies, and all the squash. That doesn’t mean it can’t be healthy! All of these healthy fall dinner recipes are delicious and nutritious. They’re great for serving for a dinner party or just to the family on a cozy weeknight. Enjoy!
If you’re looking for an easy, allergy-friendly lunch idea, we’ve got you covered with this Mayo-Free Egg Salad!
Egg salad is a classic lunch staple. You can use it in sandwiches, wraps, or even as a dip for crackers or veggies! But many store-bought (or even homemade) egg salads use mayonnaise, which can contain raw eggs. That can be a problem! There’s also a ton of other nasty ingredients in mayonnaise that we try to avoid most of the time.
This Mayo-Free Egg Salad is the solution! It has the same classic taste of traditional egg salad without the raw eggs. You can make a big batch at the beginning of the week for easy lunch packing.
I first launched MOMables to help parents make healthier versions of some of their favorite school lunches and meals, and everyone asked me for a “healthy pizza.”
In our weekly meal plans, we include tons of variety that help thousands switch up the classic pb&j sandwich, ham and cheese and even steer away from store bought boxed lunches.
What I love about this pizza lunch is that it engages kids to play with their veggies, to use them as pizza crusts and toppings, and to have fun with their foods! The lunchbox is an EasyLunchboxes container.
The toppings are unlimited and the pizza combinations are endless. The bonus is that making this lunch is really easy.
The reason I chose to use hummus for this lunch is because the last time I tried to send a build-your-own pizza lunch to school tomato sauce went everywhere. That was the last time, clearly.
I also just found this “pizza” hummus by Sabra at the grocery store and it really does taste like pizza. Don’t worry, they don’t have meat or tomato sauce in it; it’s the seasonings and fine pieces of red pepper that give it it’s pizza-like flavor.
If you think this lunch idea is fun, wait until you see the ones in our sample meal plans.
toppings of choice (sliced olives, tomatoes, peppers)
Assemble all items inside a divided lunch container or divide with silicone muffin liners.
Pack inside the lunchbox along with a spoon to spread the hummus onto pita wedges.

Do your kids keep asking for those yogurt drinks at the store but find yourself saying “no” because dairy isn’t something they can have? I’ve got you covered with these Dairy Free Homemade Yogurt Drinks!
One of the reasons I love making my own yogurt drinks is because I can use real fruit in them and many brands at the store are fruit flavored. Sometimes I use the overly ripe strawberries and bananas from my freezer, while other times I throw in whatever is in my fridge or counter. Regardless, there are just a few simple ingredients and the natural sweetener is optional.
Check out how easy these yogurt drinks are to make:
Another reason to make your own, of course, is the cost. In the past, I have purchased some of the ones from the store but they are gone before they get placed inside my fridge! This recipe is inexpensive and, if dairy-free is a lifestyle, you probably already have all the ingredients you need!
If you have a little one who can’t have dairy this is one delicious way to give them a little treat!
2 tablespoons (30 ml) maple syrup or honey (optional)
1 cup (145 g) chopped fruit
Prior to opening the coconut milk can, shake well. Open the can, blend in a blender if there is separation and pour back into the can or a glass. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. You need the coconut milk to thicken. Tip: use frozen fruit if you want to skip refrigeration of coconut milk.
When ready to make the drinks, place all ingredients in a blender and blend on medium-low until everything is smooth and evenly combined.
Pour yogurt drinks in 4-ounce (120 ml) drink containers and refrigerate for 1 hour prior to serving.
You can use any dairy milk alternative. I typically use unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Sweetened milks will add additional sugar to the recipe. The maple syrup or honey is completely optional and the need to use it will depend on taste, almond milk used, and what type of fruit you select for the recipe. Some fruits are naturally sweeter. You can skip refrigeration by using frozen fruit.
