This is part of my effort to be organised, for a few meals at least. I love these food bags from ikea – they are without a doubt better than any of the ones you can buy in the supermarket.
I use a sharpie to write on them, it drys instantly. Today I was mostly preparing vegetables for breakfast, soup and chilli concarne. But I use these bags to store cooked food as well. For example, below you can see chilli con carne split into child sized portions (for the little man who is extremely fussy – he eats this when we have dishes he doesn’t like). Stored flat, they take up little room.
This is what I done today. The breakfast veg is a random mix of carrots, courgettes, garlic, onions and peppers. I would saute these in a teaspoon of Organic Raw Virgin Coconut Oil and eat with eggs for breakfast. The recipes for the courgette soup and chilli con carne come from Melanie over at dietrebel.com, so I can’t share them with you, as they aren’t mine to share 🙂
I only spent a few minutes doing this, but it will save a lot of effort on the busy days when we arrive home from doctors appointments or music lessons and need to get dinner on the table in 20 minutes.
What are your top ways to save time and effort on busy days? I’d love to hear from you!
