If you're like me, at the end of a long day, the last thing you want to do is slave away in front of a stove cooking a healthy meal. While delivery and microwavable meals are certainly enticing options, your waistline will not be thanking you later.
So here's the dilemma: to stay healthy and energized, you need good food. But because you actually have a life, you don't have time to make it. That's why your freezer is about to become your new best friend.
On Sunday afternoon, cook as many meals as you can. Make lasagna, soup, or a casserole. Be creative! Then, divide it into single-serving portions, put it in a plastic container, and stick it in the freezer. That's it. Most meals will keep for almost a month in the freezer. They're super easy to pull out and heat up in the microwave. When it's time for dinner, make a quick side salad or cut up fresh fruit while the food is heating.
I will say, though, I cannot take the credit for such a genius idea. That would have to go to my mom. Thanks for making me so many awesome meals, Mom!
