We know that cooking our meals at home is healthier and more affordable than eating meals out. But there are many times when life gets in the way. It’s easy to run out of time, motivation or energy to prepare balanced meals.
When cooking at home, keep in mind that convenience foods can be just as nutritious as other options. Frozen, canned and microwavable choices can often give us the same nutrition while saving time and energy.
