2. Prepare main courses for the week ahead of time and freeze. Before leaving in the morning pull it out of the freezer to defrost then you can pop it in the oven upon your return.
3. Plan ahead! Make a list of the meals that you want to prepare for the week along with the recipes. Do your grocery shopping based upon those recipes.
4. Replace packaged snacks with healthier alternatives such as unsalted mixed nuts, seeds, cut up fresh veggies, and fresh or dried fruits.
5. Organize your refrigerator so that the items you will need to prepare dinner are in front and in a easy convenient place.
