INTRODUCTION

I remember those days when I had to deal with very busy days, overscheduled weekends and action-packed weeknights, the one thing I am so not looking forward to is cooking a healthy meal from scratch. It left me feeling completely overwhelmed! There wasn’t just enough time to scramble in the kitchen every night trying to make a healthy and delicious meal for my family; and whenever I had to compromise on the food quality to save time, I felt so guilty!

True, takeout and pizza delivery save time but you compromise on nutrition. Most TV and microwave dinners are so processed that there isn’t much nutrients left in them. Now, having found and practiced what works for working mums, I wish to share it with the large number of busy folks who still find it challenging to make a healthy dinner.

Everyone needs to learn how to make meals in advance. This is what works, and the only simple activity that puts in control of your schedule. Make –Ahead meals or freezer cooking simply means making meals ahead of time and storing in the freezer. This can be as quick as portioning cooked chicken into meal-size packages. Or, as time- consuming as preparing, wrapping, labeling and freezing a month’s worth of healthy meals in one weekend.

The latter is the method that I first fell in love with. I simply took one day and shopped for almost all the groceries I needed for the month and then got home and do a full day’s cooking of about 20 to 30 meals that’ll last the entire month.  I still do. If you are really busy or having a new baby, this one month make-ahead cook method is a great stress reliever!

The thing is, once you freeze meals for busy nights, you will have a more relaxing and manageable dinner time. You will simply be tossing together ingredients or reheating a whole meal. You will also get to avoid all those questionable ingredients used by fast food establishments. If however, you cannot do an entire month of meals ahead of time, consider doing weekly. You spend extra time on your hands for preparation and when things get hectic at some point during the day, you can still enjoy a quick home-cooked meal.

Make – ahead meals can be done in several ways. You may have to do some trial and error to find the routine that suits your preferences and lifestyle. But once you find what works for you; either weekly or monthly, you will find this activity very rewarding. For instance, if you are someone who always gets out of the door in a hurry every morning and your breakfast is just a takeaway croissant, then you will find it quite helpful to prepare breakfast for those busy mornings.

You’ll do well to make some homemade muesli a night before, splash in milk and there, you’ve got breakfast ready to roll. Even if you want to eat at work, you can pack it into a jar and add some milk in the office. Additionally, if you find it difficult to put together dinner due to the fact that you work late, then your focus should be on preparing dinners. Additionally, if you have kids who are picky about their food, make-ahead cooking ahead will enable you include their food preferences for the week. Also, your family will not need to eat the same meal five days of the week as they can enjoy a variety of meal; something new for each day.

Make-ahead cooking will bring a number of benefits. It makes no difference if you are cooking for just one person or two or even the entire family. You will save time, effort and money once you take time out to plan your future meals. It will also improve your eating habits. Since you have a menu of what to prepare for several days ahead, you can be sure of eating well-balanced healthier meals.

Towards A Healthier Meal

The goal of Make-Ahead meals is to save cook time and reduce stress. Since you will be making bulk purchases, it also helps to save some money. However, the most important benefit is that you will be able to eat healthier, having successfully avoided the processed ingredients in greasy
