Cook In Bulk

This Sparked Me!

I cook a whole pound of spaghetti or rice at once and freeze it in single serving sizes. This saves me time at night and I don't have to worry about how much dry spaghetti or rice to cook to get 1 serving -

I freeze it in self-sealing plastic bags (like Ziploc) and use a permanent marker to label the bag with the contents, quantity, and date -

    This works fine with legumes, too. Soaking beans overnight can be a time management demand, But having done it once just freeze all the ready to use beans in 1-serving bags and you will go and grab that healthy protein a lot more often!
