Day 317- Nutrition Bites

One of the most popular ways to meal plan is with "Once a Month Cooking" or bulk cooking for the freezer. The general idea is to set aside one to two days each month and prepare meals all day for the freezer. For the rest of the month, all you need to do is thaw and reheat the prepared meals. There are many variations on OAMC, including the "Busy Cook's Pyramid" which takes advantage of preparing individual ingredients for the freezer but leaving actual preparation until the night the meal is served. Here are some freezer cooking on-line resources.
