To increase the level of healthy food in the house and dial back the convenience foods I’ve started to spend about an hour every three days to make salads and bulk food to sit in the fridge so that things are more convenient.
Then we can just dip into salads and make various combinations of stuff into wraps, toasties, food plates, etc. It’s great for my 3-year old son as well. 1 hour is a small amount of time to spend in the kitchen and it only takes that long because they are really basic items to make. It takes around 5 minutes to throw together each thing even though they look more time intensive. Check it out… ❤
