## Time Saving Hacks for Quick Meals

Need some ideas on ways you can cut down time spent in the kitchen and enjoy quick, delicious dinners? We have included some of our top tips here:

Batch Cooking: Spend some time on the weekend preparing large batches of staple ingredients like rice, quinoa, beans, and roasted vegetables. Store them in the fridge or freezer for easy use throughout the week.

  • Pre-cut Vegetables: Buy pre-cut vegetables or spend some time chopping them in advance. This way, when it's time to cook, you can simply grab them and throw them into your dish.
  • One-Pot Meals: Opt for recipes that require only one pot or pan for cooking. This reduces both cooking and cleaning time. Think stir-fries, pasta dishes, and soups..
  • Use Pre-made Sauces and Seasonings: Pre-made sauces, marinades, and spice blends can add tons of flavor to your dishes with minimal effort. Keep a variety on hand for quick seasoning.
  • Sheet Pan Dinners: Arrange your protein, vegetables, and seasoning on a sheet pan, then bake or roast everything together. It's a simple and efficient way to make a complete meal with minimal cleanup.
  • Frozen Ingredients: Don't overlook frozen fruits and vegetables. They're often just as nutritious as fresh, and they're already prepped and ready to use. Frozen berries are great for smoothies, and frozen veggies can be quickly added to stir-fries or soups.
  • Pre-cooked Proteins: Keep pre-cooked proteins like rotisserie chicken, canned beans, or grilled tofu on hand. These can be added to salads, wraps, or pasta dishes for a quick and easy meal.
