30 Day Nutrition Challenge: Day 17

30 Day Nutrition Challenge
DAY 17 –
Batch Cook and Freeze Leftovers
With a weekly meal plan set-up and a fresh set of groceries in the fridge, it’s time to pick a meal this week to batch cook and freeze some leftovers.  Batch cooking is an excellent way to ensure you have healthy food on hand on those days where you feel tired, stressed, over-worked, short on ingredients, or just not in the mood to cook up a nutritious meal from scratch.  Remember to label the container of food you are freezing with the recipe contents and date it was prepared so you can easily (and safely) identify what you’re about to eat at a later date.

DAY 17 – Success Tracker
□ Selected a meal to batch cook
□ Prepared a healthy dish and make enough to freeze leftovers
□ Packaged leftovers in a container labeled with  its contents and date before freezing
