Making a big batch of food can be a time saver

Preparing large batches of meals like chilli, bakes, and soups and then freezing them in portion-sized containers is a smart way to ensure you have healthy meals readily available.

For example, cook a big One Pot Turkey Chili With Rice or Mushroom Soup or a tray of Sweet Potato & Bean Bake on Sunday, then divide it into individual servings and freeze them for future meals. This top tip saves time, reduces waste, and ensures consistent nutrition and flavor.

#2 Theme Nights: Revamp Your Weekly Meal Routine

Assigning themed nights simplifies meal planning and adds excitement to your weekly routine.

For instance, designate Mondays as "Meatless Mondays" and try Tofu Pad Thai.

Tuesdays as "Taco Tuesdays" with Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas.

Fridays as "Fish Fridays" with Baked Salmon Tray Rice & Tomatoes.

This strategy brings joy to your kitchen, making healthy eating enjoyable while reducing decision fatigue.
