Get efficient. Rather than getting into the rut of eating out at dinnertime, become an efficiency rock star.
- Cook once and eat three times by repurposing food. Cook lean ground beef (or turkey) and mix it with marinara sauce to top spaghetti squash one night, season it for Mexican another night and make low-sugar sloppy Joes or shepherd’s pie on night 3.
- Use a slow cooker and you’ll have an easy meal ready when you walk in the door.
- Keep the ingredients on hand for two or more family favorites. It’ll be easier to resist the draw of eating out.
