Let me tell you, with my back in as bad of shape as it’s in, filling the freezer with TV dinners doesn’t sound like a bad idea!
I also know that there’s some middle ground, too. That middle ground would include things like:
- baby greens
- boxed broth
- rotisserie chicken
- pre-prepped veggie trays
- store-baked bread
- pre-shredded cheese
These items are more ingredients than they are meals. And they can help you save time in the kitchen. Can you make your own vegetable broth? Absolutely. Is there a time to buy it already made. Yep, there sure is.
Buying pre-prepped items can make your dinner preparations go by more quickly. If you can make them yourself in advance, that works as well.
