How To Cook Healthy Meals When You Have No Time


Hey guys! This is Heather from HealthyEatingStartsHere.com.
So a question I got a lot from you guys is how to make healthy meals when I am super
busy and yes that is difficult so here are few tips that I have for you. One, would be if you have time on the weekends
or if you have a day off that is not in the weekend or whatever time off you have, if
you can make a few meals and then put them into single serving containers, put them in
the freezer and you’ve got a meal set up for a night when you don’t have time. Big pot of soup are great for that or tomato
sauce that you just can pair with some grains if you cook a big batch of rice ahead of time
that can really help, eat that throughout the week. Canned beans are already cooked
so you can use those, no problem and then just chopped off some fresh veggies and you’re
good to go. Alright, another thing you can do is add vegetable
to something that you would buy so if you buy cans soups or they’ve got soups that
are in containers now like cartons. If you add fresh vegetables to those that really
boost the nutrition value and if you look for a brand that doesn’t use too much chemicals
and salt and things like that then you’re doing pretty well. And what that does is just save you time because
part of it is already prepared and your just adding something fresh for nutrients. You
can do the same thing if you really just need to resort to buying like a veggie burger or
a frozen burrito or something like that, have it with a salad, have it with some fresh vegetables
and at least you are doing better than just eating the processed food. Ok, so adding things to a prepared food would
be the other thing. Deli section of a grocery stores are also great for getting like a grain
salad or a bean salad then you can just add some extra fresh vegetable to that. Another
thing that I can say that can free up a lot of time for me is getting away from following
recipes. I know I post recipes all the time but I think as recipes as an idea and as a
starting point to making work for whatever you’re doing. And that’s what I’ve been teaching on
the online cooking classes is to how to think beyond the recipe and go to the thought process
on why you do things, how to combine foods together so that you can always make a meal
for yourself without having to rely on a recipe. And I wanted to mention today that I am starting
the second session of those online cooking classes so if you’re interested in learning
more about healthy cooking and how to cook without a recipe, I’ll post a link to that,
it’s over at HealthyEatingStartsHere.com. And you can find is under the resources tab
but I’ll post a link under this recipe – under this video as well. So those are three quick tips for making meals
when you don’t have much time. I hope they’ve been helpful and I would love to hear your
thoughts, what you guys do to save time, if we all shared ideas then hopefully everyone
can get something, something that they can take and use in their own life. So, I’ll look forward from hearing from
you guys, leave a comment below with your thoughts and I will see you next time.
