2. Make Lunch After Dinner
While cleaning after dinner, I have a container out and pack my lunch as I am putting things away.
3. Make Concentrates
I make soups, stocks, chiles, yerba mate and other things in a “concentrated” form. Then, when I want to make one of these things, I am not starting from scratch, most of the work has been done.
4. Create Multiple Meals at the Same Time
If I am making a salad for dinner, why not cut extra for lunch and dinner the next day?
5. Wash ALL Those Darn Carrots!
Let’s say you are making lunch and need a carrot, instead of washing and cutting the ends off of one, I do the whole bag at once. In other words, I dump the whole bag of carrots into a bowl of water and wash them all at once. Then, I cut off both ends and stick in a zip lock for the refrigerator. This is one of the biggest time savers. I do this with a lot of produce including celery and potatoes. Makes life so much easier.
