    Healthy Foods You Can Prepare In Advance

    Healthy Foods You Can Prepare In Advance

    If one of your greatest challenges with healthy eating is that you don’t have the time to cook, then prepare as much of your food in advance as you can. If you can squeeze just an hour once or twice each week for food prep, you can set you and your family up for success.

    1. Cooked grains are good for up to four days after cooking them, so cook them in bulk. To simplify invest in a rice cooker. Keep things interesting by cooking in broth, mixing in herbs and spices, and mixing grains and lentils together.
    2. If you enjoy a fresh fruit or veggie smoothie in the morning, stock up on frozen fruits and veggies when they are on sale. That way you don’t have to chop anything in the morning.
    3. Hard-boiled eggs are good for one week in the fridge. Also, consider making mini crustless quiche which is good for four days. Be sure to mix in veggies, fresh herbs, spices, bacon, and cheese.
    4. Pre-wash and chop veggies and leafy greens, just be sure to use a salad spinner for your greens. Or invest in prewashed and chopped, which is a bit more expensive—but faster and easier.
    5. Keep your fridge, freezer, and pantry stocked with healthy snacks and add-ins. This includes yogurt, cheese, nuts, seeds, dried fruits, protein bars, and more.

    Last but not least, keep your freezer stocked with seafood and lean meat—and healthy frozen meals.
