On a busy weeknight, there is nothing better than coming home and not having to cook dinner. If you get all of your cooking for the week done in one day (or, at the very least, all of your prepping), then you will feel much more relaxed when you get home from work. I like using Sunday as my cooking day, but, of course, the best day is an entirely personal decision.
Health Tip #9: Cook Your Meals in Bulk on Sundays
Not all meals freeze well, which I fully acknowledge. Using your crook pot is another way to have dinner ready when you get home, but we have never been comfortable leaving anything hot on while B isn’t being actively supervised. So, for us, freezing works best (well, a personal chef would be even better, but unfortunately I don’t see that luxury in our future). To avoid freezer burn, I highly recommend using the Food Saver.
If you’d like to give freezing your meals a try, here are seven great staples to start with:
- Pulled pork (just hold the sauce)
- Soups and stews
- Meatballs or chili
- Burrito, fajita, or wrap filling
- Diced chicken
Do you cook in bulk? What is your favourite freezer-ready meal?
