Everyone knows that cooking ahead is both time and money efficient. It's energy efficient too.
Make your slow cooker meals overnight. Roast vegetables first thing in the morning.
You and your home will recover faster from the heat of cooking, and you'll have more variety in your diet!
You'll have homemade food ready to heat and eat, especially roasted veggies ready to use as side dishes or salad toppings.
Weekend mornings and nights are excellent, as they give you time to prep and clean up.
