Okay, we’ve all been there. It’s dinnertime. You have nothing picked out. So you rush to grab whatever’s available. Not necessarily the best decision on your part, right? Just think when you’re having those chicken nuggets, if you had simply prepared a few things in advance you could have had a healthy and delicious meal on the table for you and your family right?
There are a lot of things you can prepare ahead of time to make dinnertime a breeze. Did you know that you can prepare green onions ahead of time? Just cut ’em up and put them in a an empty water bottle in the freezer! You can shake out a little bit at a time when you need them. They also defrost really quickly!! You can also pre-cook boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cut them into strips for quick and easy meal prep. I think I might even start doing some OAMC (also know as Once A Month Cooking), or may even OAWC (Once a Week Cooking) now that I’m going to be going back to work soon.
Don’t let the rush to get something on the table make you make decisions for yourself, or your family, that you may regret later!
