Cooking is supposed to bring you the peace you so desperately need, by granting you a healthy meal and the vital nutrients your body requires. If you’re ready to take back what’s yours, these meal prep and cooking tips are going to make your life easier and healthier. From the fridge to the microwave – we’ve got you covered.
1. Keep It Simple:
We all tend to complicate cooking when it doesn’t have to. Some foods just don’t. There is really not reason to be putting a lot of extra effort into a recipe, the more you do the worse it is for your health in most cases. Keep it basic, keep it simple, you’ll get healthy and fit much faster.
2. Keep It Organized:
We need to be honest with ourselves, us humans are pretty messy. With unhealthy dishes and clutter all around us, we can’t be too surprised with how chaotic our lives get. Take a night and really do inventory on what we have in our kitchen and do some organizing, clean out the fridge, get rid of old junk, and cut the clutter.
3. Plan Your Meals:
Use your Sunday to plan your meals for the week. You can pull up our meal planner and create your grocery list for the week. Simple, healthy meals are no trouble when you’ve got a bunch already planned out. Try it out, you’ll be happy you did.
4. Have a Chopping Party:
A group of your friends or family members can come over every Sunday (or your night) and help you chop up fruits and vegetables while you make your meal planning. The more the merrier and there will be more hands to help clean up. Trust me, it’s a win-win situation.
5. Reduce and Reuse:
Even though this is a tip for reducing our household footprint, it also helps when you have that huge pile of fruits and veggies you just chopped. You can freeze fruits and veggies for later use to save time and have on hand when your cooking. They will keep for a few months and save you from having to chop them all over again.
