Tips for a healthy new year!
It is January so many of us are refocusing our health and nutrition goals. We want you to meet them so over the month we will be sharing our tips on cooking and eating healthy.
My first tip is having a well stocked pantry and freezer. This is my very messy but very full pantry. I have lots of seasonings, beans, pasta, rice, dried and canned fruit, potatoes, onions and garlic, nuts and seeds and lots more. I like to keep ingredients on hand so that when I make a meal during the week I don’t have to shop for all my ingredients. In my freezer I also keep things for a quick weeknight meal like frozen fish, frozen chicken sausages, vegetables my family likes and leftovers from cooking a double batch of something on a weekend that was not too crazy. To keep costs down I buy dried goods and frozen foods when they are on sale instead of when I plan to make something. It’s much easier to cook on Wednesday night when you don’t have to fun the store first!
