5 Hacks To Help You Save Time In The Kitchen
Want to eat healthy food but can’t find the time to cook? We’ve got you covered! Here are our top 5 ways for saving time in the kitchen, without compromising your health!
Our top 5 hacks for saving time in the kitchen:
1. Batch cooking
Meal prepping and batch cooking is one of the best ways to save time in the kitchen and stay on track with your health. Setting aside some time at the weekends to get your food ready in advance means you don’t have to spend time cooking each evening during the week. It also prevents poor food decisions, as there’s always healthy food on hand! Batch cooking is also a great way of saving money – those hangry trips to the supermarket after work can become a thing of the past, when you have pre-prepared meals ready at home!
2. 5-minute meals
We have lots of meals that take just 5 minutes to whip up in our 5-minute meal series on our YouTube channel. These meals are super-easy to make, and are packed with veggies and flavour! We particularly love this recipe for our delicious vegan Pad Thai!
3. One-pot wonders
One-pot dishes mean less mess in the kitchen and less time tidying up! We love one-pot dishes for simple, fuss-free cooking and our paella recipe is one of favourites!
4. Time-saving tricks
Every second counts when you are hungry and tired, so learning some handy short cuts in the kitchen is a great way to shave minutes of your cooking time! Learning good knife skills, prepping veg ahead of time, and having all the utensils and ingredients you need on hand, are all great ways of becoming speedier! We love this handy hack for peeling garlic, which is often the base ingredient for so many dishes!
5. Make breakfast the night before
Breakfast is one of those meals that can easily be forgotten about when you are in a rush to get out the door in the morning. However, making your brekkie the night before is a great time-saver, and means you don’t miss out on the most important meal of the day! Homemade granola bars, chia seed puddings, and overnight oats are all handy grab-and-go options.
