Be sure to prep your food ahead of time so that you can enjoy your company this year. By having your ingredients pre-portioned, you’ll find it a lot easier to cook, even when you’re crunched for time.
Use pre-cut vegetables
Although pre-cut vegetables may cost more, you can’t beat the convenience. Fresh vegetables end up going bad so quickly and sometimes it just isn’t worth the hassle.
Eat the peels
Don’t waste time peeling carrots, potatoes, or apples. The skin of vegetables and fruits are high in antioxidants, fibre, vitamins, and minerals. Just give them a good scrub and make sure to cut out any nasty blemishes.
Dread cooking after a Thanksgiving feast? Plan for leftovers when you’re making a recipe. It’s often worth whipping up a double batch so you’ll have at least two days worth of lunch or dinner.
