Working Ahead for Healthy Food ConvenienceBy
For the past two weeks during our Funky Fresh Kitchen series, we’ve talked all about getting your kitchen cleaned out and organized, getting rid of unhealthy foods and working toward making your own healthy foods from scratch. One thing I didn’t cover during the series which has become a very imporant way for me to keep my kitchen organized and healthy is making healthy foods ahead of time and freezing them for quick meals.
Whole Wheat Waffles are great to make ahead and
put into the freezer for a quick, healthy breakfast!
Having foods like healthy burritos, whole wheat waffles and homemade pizza pockets in the freezer to pull out for quick meals has been a life saver for me many times. This week, I plan to work on putting a few more healthy foods into my freezer for quick, convenience items. Here’s what’s on my list to try making this week:
- Turkey Sausage
- Homemade Beef Bologna (I’ll be adapting the recipe)
- Homemade Spicy Beef Pepperoni (I’ll be adapting the recipe)
- Giant Breakfast Cookies
At the end of the week, I’ll be back with an update on how my extra cooking times went. I can’t wait to try those new bologna and pepperoni ideas!!
Care to join me in trying to get ahead just a little bit? Think you might have time to make just one extra dish or item for your freezer for some healthy convenience? Leave a comment letting us know what you’re up to in the kitchen. I love hearing new ideas!!
P.S. I’ve got a new “Make Ahead Meals” recipe to share with you later this week!
