Save Time On Weeknight Meals

This Sparked Me!

There are some parts of healthy meals that take much longer to cook than the rest and reheat well. For faster meals when you don't have much time you can pre-cook things like brown rice, wholewheat pasta, or dried beans and store them in the fridge in appropriate portions. If you do this on Sunday you have your staple items that take the longest to cook ready for the week so all you have to do is saute some veggies and lean protein to add to it!

    Im not really the cooker but I'm slowly trying to adapt a healthier lifestyle as in the past my meals consisted of eating out. I absoutely love this idea and this will cut down on a lot of time. emoticon

    Great idea. This way we eat healthy foods and don't spend hours in the kitchen!
