If you’ve joined the real food band wagon, you know for a fact how powerful food is. You know that what you put into your mouth can make you feel like a million bucks or broke down pinto.
I had no idea that the Paleo diet would help me lose 65lbs and heal from pre-diabetes and depression. I also know that removing grains helped me get pregnant easity with my two children. This is something I worried about since I have PCOS. Anyhow, I am committed to making sure that what I eat nourishes me.
However, there are days when I feel like telling my family that we are going to eat hot dogs and coleslaw for dinner. It happens. Ask Mr. Bejelly.
Anyhow, I can’t eat hot dogs everyday so I stick to cooking, no fuss, simple 30 minute paleo recipes so that I’m not spending hours in the kitchen and my family doesn’t revolt.
Over the years I’ve learned a few tricks on how to get dinner on the table and below are a few of my favorite kitchen hacks.
Time Saving Cooking Tips
- Use left-over food in your lunch the next day (saves time and money).
- Don’t bother peeling all your produce! Carrots and sweet potatoes can be roasted with the skin on.
- Put out all your spices ahead of time when making your meals so you’re not hunting them down constantly. Also, you would be surprised how sometimes the only seasonings you need are salt and pepper.
- Cook a large piece of meat (whole chicken or roasted) to use in several dishes during the week. After it’s cooled you can separate it into freezer bags to use as a quick protein in a dish.
