Make more food

Looking to make lunch, dinner or quick snacks out of the fridge easier?

Double or triple the amount of meat (or other protein) in your meal at the start of the week and then use the leftovers for the rest of the week’s meals.

Even for meatless meals, cook extra eggs, lentils, or beans, and save them for tomorrow or a few days after. Don’t worry – most leftovers, including meat, typically stay good for 3-4 days after.

When you cook dinner this week, make extras of the main piece – beef, chicken, beans, etc. – and save it to use in meals for each of the coming days.

This will save time, stress, money, and could even help you plan out healthy eating.

So, check it out and see how it works for you and your family!
