Hope you had a great 4th! I've decided to do something different this week.
I want to start giving you some batch cooking and meal prep ideas. A lot of these ideas are pretty simple. We just don't always think of it.
I heard a statistic the other day that shocked me. A third of the money we spend on food goes into the garbage! That's right, we are wasting a ton of food.
I'm very guilty of this myself. Just last week I threw away a whole zucchini!
I made a promise to myself I would stop doing this. Which means I need to plan, prep, and batch!
This week I have all these sweet potatoes sitting on the counter and before they start to go bad I decided to take action.
I peeled, chopped, seasoned them and stuck them in the freezer. I also took one batch and I'm baking them right now to throw on top of a salad later...I'll take pics!
I'll give you my recipe but remember if you don't like the seasoning I use, then change it up!
Prep time 15 minutes
4 Sweet potatoes peeled and diced into 1-inch pieces
1/2 Tsp. Of each of these spices
Place in glass containers or ziplock freezer bags and freeze for up to 3 months.
When your ready for some sweets head over to your freezer, take them out and bake at 425 for 25-30 minutes. Now that was easy!
I'm getting ready to start a 5 Day Plant-Based Cooking Challenge for people who want to transition over to a plant-based diet or if you just need some more plant-based cooking ideas.
This will include a 30-page cookbook, daily live cooking videos, a private Facebook community, and more stuff like this, meal prep, batch cooking, and reducing food waste!
Definitely join me! Hit the link below and sign up, we start August 5th at 5 pm est.
