Don’t have time to cook every night? Make extra when you do! It’s a simple way to reduce waste.
Cooking larger batches means quick, waste-free meals later in the week. And making larger quantities doesn’t require extra cooking or cleaning time! 😃
Even though we’re a family of two, I always make 4-6 portions so we have plenty of leftovers. After dinner, I fill lunch-size glass containers with what’s left and pop them in the fridge. It makes packing lunch the next morning a cinch. No need to make anything. No need to transfer food into another container. All I have to do is add some fruits and veggies, and my son is set with a healthy meal and snacks.
By cooking extra portions, I avoid the packaging that comes with frozen meals and prepared foods. I’m also less tempted to eat out with such a convenient option waiting in the fridge. Plus, our meals are healthier and less expensive! 😊
