Do you have a hard time keeping track of more than one thing at a time in the kitchen? I know I do. If I try to make a protein with more than one side, something’s going to wind up burned.
Or maybe you’re intimidated by how much cooking a healthy diet involves. You feel like you’re spending every free moment in the kitchen and if temptation strikes before you have food available, you’re likely to just order out. Even if it means a “food hangover” the next day.
I have one trick I use simplify things and keep myself on track. And it’s batch cooking!
Batch cooking is the practice of cooking a whole lot of food at once, so you have leftovers to use throughout the week. You can search the hashtag #mealprep on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, or Facebook to see a whole lot of ideas for batch cooking, but what do you do if you have to follow a special diet?
Never fear… there are a lot of AIP recipes that are batch cooking-friendly!
