#12 Roast different veggies together

Some vegetables have the same cooking time. Instead of roasting each vegetable at a time, roast them together to save time.

Some veggies that you can cook together include: potatoes, cauliflower, parsnips, carrots and onions. Fast-cooking veggies you can prepare together: mushrooms, tomatoes and asparagus.

#13 Prep freezer friendly foods

You can freeze any foods but some meals become mushy. So, when prepping meals for several days cook foods which freeze and reheat easily. Soups, chicken, turkey meatballs and stews are a good fit.

You’ll just need to heat the food for a few minutes and you have yourself a healthy meal.

#14 Keep leftovers in the fridge

Some people find leftovers unappealing but they can be help eat healthier and save time. Just put them in a container and store them in the fridge.

Leftovers can be kept in the refrigerator up to 4 days without going bad.

#15 Make lunch the night before

Some folks may not feel the need to prep meals for several days. If that’s you, making lunch the night before hand is a good idea.

In fact, this will work well for someone without a refrigerator. But be sure to warm the food in the morning to keep it fresh.

#16 Organize food in the refrigerator

The refrigerator has different compartments which have different temperatures and serve different purposes.

The door is the warmest part of the fridge, so place in it foods that don’t spoil quickly. Place cooked foods on the top shelves of the fridge. The lower shelves are the coldest so place foods which need to be cooked there. You can store a wide variety of foods in the freezer, just pack the foods tightly in containers and keep them well organized.

#17 Hard-boil eggs using the oven

Eggs are among the healthiest foods in the world, so they should be part of your diet. But the pot limits the number of eggs you can boil at a time. Use an oven to cook a dozen eggs at once.

Make sure you test the heat of the oven before you cook a dozen eggs. If the oven is too hot or too cold it could mess things up.
