Batch Cooking Will Keep Your Diet On Track

Do you ever open the refrigerator and just stare? Don't say no, because we've all done it. You're hungry, but have nothing prepared and no clue what to eat. So what happens when you get to this point? Well, if unhealthy, quick eats are in the vicinity, that's generally the first place you'll go. Enter a whole bag of salty chips with zero nutritional value. It's a cycle that just keeps getting in the way of you maintaining a healthy diet. It's time to break the cycle, and batch cooking is the way to go.

So what is batch cooking? It's really just want it sounds like. It's cooking staple foods in large batches so that all you have to do is literally go to your fridge, drop a serving of those staples in a bowl and warm them up. I just a few minutes time you'll have a nutrient-dense meal that will help power you through the day -- or make dinner a breeze.

Some good items to put on your weekly batch cooking agenda include:




Vegetables (potatoes, brussels sprouts, carrots, squash, etc)

If you cook a big batch these items weekly and keep fresh greens on hand, you can completely avoid the daily gaze into the fridge.  Trust me.

Give it a try, and let me know how it goes. If you have any questions about the best way to prepare this items, drop me a comment.
