I want to share some of my nutritional tips for busy moms.

One of the largest challenges as a busy mom is getting a healthy meal on the table for dinner. I have developed some healthy dinners no matter what gets thrown at me during a busy day.

Prep tomorrow’s dinner today

Each evening, I ensure that I have everything ready for dinner the next night.

Invest in an air fryer

Cooking in an air fryer can save you time and it makes clean-up easy. An air fryer is a mini convection oven. It matches the taste and texture of your favourite deep-fried foods-minus the all the fat and extra calories.

Invest in a slow cooker

Prep your ingredients in the morning, add them to the slow cooker and press a button or two. Slow cooking does not destroy more nutrients. In fact, the lower temperatures may help preserve nutrients that can be lost when food is cooked rapidly at high heat. What’s more, food cooked slowly often tastes better. The cookers can keep the food hot and fresh even if the family members must eat at different times. A slow cooker uses less electricity than an oven.

Invest in a pressure cooker

Pressure cookers are designed to make short work of slow cook dishes. They are economical both in the amount of power they use and are also ideal for tenderising cheaper cuts of meats. They can reduce cooking times by up to 50% and retain nutrients well, making them a healthy cooking method.

Steam in a bag

Almost every grocery store sells steam in a bag veggies and rice/mixed grain packets. These are total life savers for a quick dinner. All you would need is some type of protein and you got yourself a meal.

Always have quick and easy meal option

I have a few go-to meals that are quick and easy like chicken or beef stir fry. This is something you can always have on-hand, frozen stir fry vegetables and rice/grain packets. All you do is throw the frozen vegetables in a pan to warm up. Then sprinkle on some ground ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, a little rice vinegar and likely hoisin sauce. Add your protein and throw your rice packet in the microwave. And bonus that you can get leftovers from it.

Eat leftovers often

Eat them for dinner the next day or for lunch. Leftovers are amazing because they will greatly reduce the number of times that you need to cook. Actuality, there are many meals that taste better the next day – chili or any soup for that matter. We eat leftovers every week so that we only must cook a few times.
