Cooking up Some Health! Get out your apron ladies, because this week’s challenge calls for you to get in the kitchen.
I know what you’re thinking, “I don’t have two hours to spend in the kitchen every night!” The good news is that with a little creativity and planning (See week 13 challenge), it doesn’t have to be as time consuming as you think.
Case in point, my fave go-to dinner: whole grain rye bread toasted with tomato, cheese and avocado. Sure beats a frozen entree! And don’t forget about your trusty crockpot – this kitchen tool is a time-saviour. Or maybe you make a day of it, I like to call it “Batch cook Sundays” Cut up all your veg for the week, make a few dishes and even a dozen healthy muffins and you are stocked for the week.
Make use of your freezer too! Make a large lasagna and freeze a couple portions to pull out for a healthy lunch in a months time to prevent leftover-itis (aka when you get sick of eating the same food 4 days in a row).
Here’s your Do it! Post it! Challenge for the week:
Do it! Sometimes you just need a new recipe to get you excited about cooking again, so this week the challenge is to try TWO new recipes.
