Rachel Stroud, RD, from Good Measure Meals is here to give you her best advice on how to find more free time in your day.
What is the best strategy for making the most of the time you have each day?
Don’t clean your kitchen more often than necessary. While cleaning up after dinner, prepare breakfast and lunch for tomorrow.
What is one way to gain an extra hour in the day?
Embrace leftovers! When you make grains or veggies, cook double and use extras as building blocks for a quick, easy meal the next day. Cooked veggies last five to seven days in the refrigerator and meat or poultry last one to two days.
What is a mistake people make when planning their day?
Forgetting to plan healthy snacks. Don’t get stuck during the afternoon slump. Have pre-cut fruits, veggies or a handful of nuts on hand to help you get from one meal to the next.
How can people make more free time in their week?
Organize! Plan your meals in advance to save time and money. Use similar ingredients in multiple recipes to repurpose items you already have.
What is the biggest time waster?
Peeling fruits or veggies when you don’t need to. Apples, pears, peaches, potatoes, cucumbers, and zucchini have edible, delicious skin packed with vitamins and fiber.
