Exactly why I love one-pot meals that incorporate about 50% veggies and that I can freeze with calorie counts. If I need to cook once, I might as well have dinner today and another 7 dinners in my freezer for days when I'm lazy!
I tend to make soups, chilis, bean dishes, and burritos, but also rice and pasta bowls. I make much more frozen stuff for my daughter too. Why buy nuggets or meatballs when I can make them to our tastes and incorporate veggies?
Portion control, price, time management, and health built right in.
