Weight Management

One of the biggest obstacles to eating healthy is finding time to prepare meals, but there’s a solution for busy families. It’s called “batch” or bulk cooking. Simply pre-prep ingredients to shorten future cooking times or double the size of a recipe and freeze the extra portions. Although this requires some planning and preparation up front, it not only saves time, but may also save you money in the long run. For even speedier meal prep, consider investing in a pressure cooker, which can cook frozen food without defrosting. Read more and get a recipe for pulled pork loin >
