Super mom meals on the go

. February 7, 2013.

It’s 5pm—do you know what you’re going to make for dinner? With a few helpful and healthy tips you can turn your worrisome dining experience into a meaningful one.
A few minutes of planning before you go shopping can help save you from a freak-out later. If you can find time on Saturday or Sunday to plan out your meals for the week, I guarantee meal preparations will be smoother. After a day at work there’s nothing worse than making a stop at the store to pick up dinner items.
Secondly, do not be afraid to pull out your secret weapon—
the old reliable crock-pot. By preparing a dish like a roast or stew, the crock-pot can become a fast friend! If you find it easier to prepare meals on the weekend you can always freeze them and pull them out when needed. I also like to make use of lucky leftovers. For example, if you have turkey meatball marinara over pasta one night, the next night have a meatball sub on a wholegrain bun. You can even disguise your leftover roast as barbeque beef sandwiches.
My number one rule as a healthy mom is: do not wait until 5pm to decide what you are having for dinner. Remember when you take a few minutes to plan and prepare, you can pull off a super mom meal any day of the week!
