Save money in your kitchen.
For breakfast if you are a smoothie person why not cut your fruit and vegetables the night before. Put them in a plastic resealable bag or container. In the morning all you have to do is throw all the ingredients into your blender. For those who don’t make smoothies in the morning trying to figure out what to make for breakfast can also be hectic.
I like to make ‘ahead’ breakfast options like hard boiled eggs and avocado. I can make the boiled eggs the night before and have it ready for the morning. I also like eating cottage cheese and pineapple. That is one of my favorite quick breakfast items that provides you with protein and keep you energized until lunch time. Any breakfast recipe that is good to make ahead of time is my best friend.
Dinner leftovers can be transformed into new lunches the next day. Just like make ahead breakfast, you can do the same thing with lunch. I always prepped my vegetables and fruit the night before. A great way to save time for lunches is to make everyone the same lunch. With exception of smaller portions for the kids. That way you don’t have to think about who eats what for lunch.
Oh how I love dinner time I remember when I was in school coming home to a delicious smelling dinner. When I had my own family and our son started going to school I asked myself how my mom did it. I realized it was all about the process she used to cook dinner. The slow cooker will be your friend. Thinking about what to make for dinner can be as easy as throwing all ingredients in the slow cooker turn it on and go. By the time you come home dinner is done.
