After a hectic day, there’s nothing better than sitting down to a healthy, home-cooked meal. But if you think that it takes too much time, think again. The key is being prepared and planning ahead. Make sure your kitchen is stocked with nutritious staples such as whole-wheat pastas, brown rice, beans, canned tomatoes, and fresh and frozen veggies so that you can throw together a wholesome meal with minimum fuss and effort.
Healthy Dinner Ideas
Double up on the recipe.
It takes the same time to make a double batch of your favourite pasta sauce as it does a single serving. So make 2 batches and freeze.
Go for one-pot meals.
Making chili in a slow cooker, for example, can give you all the carbs, protein, and nutrients in just one bowl. Again, consider doubling up on the recipe for quick, healthy meals.
To satisfy your sweet tooth after a meal, make up a delicious treat like Ensure® popsicles and stock them in your freezer. That way you won’t be as tempted to reach for a rich dessert.
