Cooking healthy meals can be intimidating and time-consuming, but with these kitchen hacks and ideas to boost the nutritional quality of your recipes, you’ll be eating healthier in no time!
By chopping vegetables and measuring out liquids before you start to cook, you’ll be able to focus and relax while cooking rather than multitasking like crazy. Plus, prepping makes for a less messy kitchen to deal with once the meal is made -- always a plus!
It’s always helpful to make a large meal you can refrigerate or freeze for the next time you’re pressed for time or aren’t in the mood to cook. By making sure there’s always a healthy meal close at hand, you’ll be less tempted to reach for fast-food or packaged options -- yes, they’re convenient, but they’re usually also full of additives, unnecessary sodium, and unwanted preservatives.
Nothing is easier than throwing a bunch of ingredients together in a pot that will cook up a healthy meal for you! Cooking time can range from 4 to 8 hours, depending on your schedule, making it a super alternative to watching the stove when you’re in a time-crunch.
Don’t have a crockpot? No worries! One-pot meals have the same effect as a crock-pot. Just toss in all of the ingredients and you’ll have a hot, delicious, and healthy meal with very little effort!
Making simple changes to your recipes can really boost their nutritional value and overall quality. Here are a few tips:
