Hi there! It's been awhile since I last posted. Life at home and at work is full and busy. So thought I would jump back in to posting with a quick and appropriate topic! When life is busy, streamline as much as possible!
I was making dinner the other night and didn't feel like roasting vegetables and didn't want to make a salad either so I decided to make a veggie tray to serve with dinner. Chopping extra veggies for a salad makes a lot of sense and saves time for the next day. You can certainly prep more food than enough for just one extra day, but you get the idea. Here is an article from Cooking Light magazine for more tips on meal prep. Pre chopped vegetables are best used within a couple days, not for the whole week.
I have shared other recipes on my Pinterest page that work well with the Chop Once, Eat Twice theme. Red, yellow, and orange peppers can be Italian one night and Mexican the next! It can also be as simple as making extra roasted vegetables to enjoy at dinner one night and then thrown into a salad or a wrap the next day, or making extra brown rice or quinoa to use for a few days. Soup is a great way to eat several times from one chopping day!
What are your life hacks to eat well and save time? Would love to hear. :)
Take good care! Have a Wonderful Weekend!
