Q: What are some tips for cooking healthy meals for fewer people?

A: Cooking for less people mean buying less food. Keep that in mind while grocery shopping and buy accordingly or else you will end up wasting food and money.

Q: How can parents maximize their time in the kitchen?

A: Meal planning is crucial whether you are cooking for one person or 10 people. Save time by preparing part of your meals on the weekend: make small individual salads for each day of the week, marinate meats ahead of time and bake some healthy granola bars or muffins for a quick grab-and-go breakfast.

Q: How can parents break out of old meal routines?

A: Try new recipes that you once steered away from because “the children would not like it.” Explore new foods and seasonings. And don’t rush – there are no school or sporting events that you have to run off to after dinner.

Q: How can parents throw a fun, healthy, adults-only dinner party?

A: Invite every guest to bring a dish using a seasonal vegetable they have never cooked before, and pair it with a fresh juiced cocktail. This encourages everyone to try new recipes and foods.
