For many people, it’s tough getting a healthy, home-cooked meal on the table every day. But it doesn’t need to be that way.
“You can fit eating health into your busy schedule—you just have to be prepared and get a little creative,” says Aimee Crant-Oksa, MS, RD, FAND, clinical nutrition manager at CentraState. She recommends these four ideas for healthy cooking:
- Plan out meals and shopping lists. Aim for 3 to 4 days at a time so it’s not overwhelming in the beginning.
- Wash and cut product right away so it’s easy to grab at any time.
- Take advantage of everyday kitchen items like muffin pans, mason jars, and pressure cookers for easy-to-clean, all-in-one meals.
- Use nutrient-rich, frozen vegetables when fresh ones are out of season.
