When life gets stressful or busy, it helps to have a make-ahead meal (or two!) in the fridge or freezer. You quickly assemble and heat without much trouble. My fav go-to is tray baking veg, then, whatever is sitting in the fridge/freezer can be assembled with salads or grains into a multitude of meals. And a simple trick is to cook a whole packet of grains and pulses. Then parcel cooked rice, quinoa, pearl barley, lentils, chickpeas etc. into meal sized portions – for 2 or 4 or 6 people and freeze! As a guide 250g cooked is enough for 2 people. Other requirements? Tasty, not take too long to prepare, and fill you up when you need it most!
