There are many things in my life that take up a lot of time and being in the kitchen is usually one of them. Prepping, cooking, and cleaning. It’s a rotation that repeats itself daily. Before you know it an entire hour has passed leaving you exhausted and wondering what happened to your time.
Time is precious and there are so many other fun things we could enjoy. I also work from home now and have limited time to focus so gone are the days of spending an hour lunch break on myself.
Because of that, I am looking at ways to save time in the kitchen.
The costs and unhealthy eating habits add up over time. (Don’t get me wrong though, I still enjoy a drive-thru meal occasionally).
Ways to Save Time in the Kitchen
By meal planning and forecasting your week, you can avoid making impulse decisions. When you meal plan you can avoid spending minutes staring into your pantry wondering what to cook. Consider using a weekly planner to help organize and remind you what you are serving every day.

Spend time up front to organize your pantry and fridge. Purchase bins, baskets, and shelving that can utilize space effectively. Much like looking at a full and cluttered closet overwhelmed with what to wear, a disorganized and dirty pantry can leave a person overwhelmed with too many options.
Consider pre-prepared foods like Healthy Choice Simply Café Steamers
In a perfect world with endless time, every meal I enjoyed would be made from scratch. The reality is that is far from the case. I like to enjoy a few pre-prepared meals that are easy to make, but don’t compromise on taste like the new Healthy Choice Simply Café Steamers. My husband also loves to take these to work to eat for lunch because they are easy to transport and make.
Ready in minutes, the four new recipes feature on-trend flavors, organic ingredients, all containing 270 calories or less. They are also made using all Non-GMO ingredients.
Prep meals with a food processor
Consider prepping your vegetables with a food processor. Cutting and preparing food can take up a lot of time. When you use a food processor that can cut that time in half.
On most nights, we try to delegate tasks and chores as a family. While I am cooking, my husband is playing with my daughter or vice versa. My stepson does the dishes while we clean the kitchen. Even my three year old helps out by putting her dirty dishes in the sink and sometimes “helping” me cook. This teaches work ethic and teamwork to our children. This doesn’t always happen every night, but we do put in an effort for it to happen more than a few times a week.
