Cook-a-Palooza's Twelve Days of Christmas Cooking Tips

Like anything in life, it’s good to take a break…even from activities you love. The same applies to cooking. If you do it everyday, you may get “meal prep burn-out”. Use the 80 / 20 rule to prevent this awful condition. That means prepping homemade meals five or six days a week and resorting to take-out or ready-made meals for the remaining days. If you live with others maybe they can help you prep the meals to make the entire process even easier. Using this rule will not only make you feel better about what you eat but you’ll also be surprised about the dollars you save in the process.

On the ninth and tenth days of Christmas, Santa shared these cooking tips with me,

Limit take-out to once or twice a week,
Let household members help you,

Plan your meals on weekends,
Utilize your leftovers,
Only grocery shop once a week,
Don't cook to boy band Christmas tunes,
Invest in heavy bottom skillets,
Organize your kitchen
Dou-ble your bak-ing sheets.

(Almost there folks)
