I don't know about you, but after Thanksgiving, I am ready to spend a little less time in the kitchen.
It's OK to take SHORT CUTS in the kitchen. In fact, I rely on them to keep my family on track with eating healthy, without compromising my sanity.
Here are just THREE that I rely on WEEKLY
1. Buy cut up vegetables. Trader Joe's is a gold mine for that. Whole foods has a bunch of options as well, but a bit pricier.
And on that note, buy cut up frozen vegetables. They have the same nutritional value as their fresh counter part.
2. Buy good quality marinades. There is no reason to buy 10 ingredients to marinade a chicken, when you can buy just one. I absolutely LOVE Primal Kitchen. I buy chicken breast, open on bottle of their marinade, pour it over, and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. When I later cook it in the air fryer, oven or on the girll, the chicken comes out tender and delicious. BONUS: their Teriyaki sauce works amazing with tofu.
3. Stock your freezer with good quality fish. When it comes to fish, quality is very important. Fulton Fish Market supplies fish to some of the best NYC restaurants. I have ordered from them many times. The fish always arrives so fresh. I use a few pieces for dinner that night, and freeze the rest for later. Fresh fish does not require more than a little olive oil and salt. They are having some awesome holiday sales right now too.
