Stress Free Meals: Taking The Stress Out of Meal Time
If you are looking for ways to make preparing for and eating meals a more relaxing and hassle-free process, read on! Creating delicious meals from scratch isn’t always an option. So when you are pushed for time or simply want to give yourself a break, choosing a filling, sumptuous meal made with love and the best quality ingredients will help you enjoy your food guilt and worry-free. Find our tips below on how to create stress-free meals that are also delicious.
How you Can Have Wholesome & Delicious Stress-free Meals
Making meals from scratch every day can be highly time-consuming. Not only do you have to plan and prepare a variety of meals to eat, but you also have to consider factors such as cost, getting the right balance of nutrients, preparation and cooking time and purchasing all the correct ingredients in the first place. It’s no wonder that some people crave a meal where someone else has already done all the hard work for them!
Many people worry that purchasing convenience food will mean they end up spending more. They think that the ingredients will be low quality, stuffed full of additives and preservatives and as a result, a not very satisfying or healthy meal for them or their family.
However, this doesn’t have to be the case and there are plenty of ready-made meals out there that make for the perfect stress-free meal. At Mud Foods, we make handcrafted meals using only the freshest and highest quality ingredients, to produce an end result that is well worth the money and the time you get back too!
Tactics For Creating Stress-Free Meals
Whether you want to order in, bulk buy, or cook quickly, here are our 4 top tips for enjoying stress-free meals.
1. Make a meal plan
Creating a meal plan in advance means you won’t have the headache of deciding what to cook each night. The great news is that you can use your meal plans again and again and become really familiar with the recipes.
2. Prep ahead
By doing all of your food prep in one go, you can then have everything you need to whip up quick meals for the rest of the week. You do need to be a bit organised for this, but by chopping and labelling different ingredients for the week ahead you’ll save so much time later.
3. Cook in bulk and freeze
Making bulk batches of food can be a real game-changer. By creating additional servings and then freezing them, you have your own freezer full of home-cooked meals - all ready for you to eat whenever you don’t want to have to make an effort to cook from scratch.
4. Mix up home-cooked meals and ones that are ready-made
It’s OK to give yourself the night off from cooking when you want to, and buying ready-made meals for a quick and easy option is always a good way to reduce stress and make mealtimes more relaxed and enjoyable.
