Short on time? Plan ahead for meals

Filed under: ,

Too busy to prepare healthy meals for your family? So many of us are. If you learn how to cook the right way, however, you can not only put together hearty food and free up some spare time too. eDiets has some great tips on how to cook quickly and efficiently for the whole family, including:
  • Buy lean ground beef or turkey and mix with your favourite seasoning for hamburgers or meatballs. And make extra so you can freeze some. Enlist your kids to help.
  • When you make a dish like chili or lasagna, make lots -- freeze all of the leftovers so you can use them on another day
  • If you're on the run, instead of heading for fast food, order something hearty from a local restaurant, and divide it up into reasonable portions. And when you eat out, take your leftover home. Either freeze them or eat them within a couple of days.
  • When you freeze chicken part, freeze them with spices, sauces or marinades. Then you can just pop them in the oven without any fuss.
How do you save time in the kitchen?
