Prepare big batches on weekends and swap meals with friends.
Whether you’re a busy single person or a time-crunched working parent, swapping meals with friends can save you time in the kitchen.
On the weekend, make a large batch of a healthy, easy-to-share meal, such as vegetable lasagna, hearty chili or lentil soup. Split it into portions and share it with a friend or two. They do the same and share with you. You’ll get different healthy meals to enjoy during the week but without shopping for ingredients or cooking.
Don’t forget about breakfast! Make whole grain pancakes, your friend makes French toast, and then you swap. Refrigerate or freeze the food, and then just pop a piece into the toaster for a quick and healthy breakfast ready to go every day of the week!
