Making healthy meals doesn't have to take a lot of time or require complicated recipes. There are many ways you can save time in the kitchen and still eat delicious, healthy food. It's just a matter of having the right foods on hand and learning how to take shortcuts in the kitchen.

Keep your kitchen stocked with quick and easy meal ingredients

Keeping commonly used foods in your kitchen can help you pull together a quick meal in no time. Having frozen and canned foods and foods with a long shelf life is helpful for those nights when you haven't had time to go to the grocery store. Some basic ingredients to have are:

  • Frozen chicken breasts and fish fillets.
  • Frozen vegetables.
  • Frozen and canned fruits.
  • Canned beans, such as pinto beans, white beans, and black beans.
  • Vegetable or chicken broth.
  • Tomato sauce and pasta sauce.
  • Whole-grain pasta.
  • Brown rice.
  • Onions and garlic.

Let the grocery store do the prep work for you

You can find many foods already cut, washed, and ready to eat, such as:

  • Packaged, ready-to-eat fresh vegetables, such as baby carrots, salad mixes, and chopped broccoli and cauliflower. These are great for making quick salads, soups, casseroles, and stir-fries.
  • Packaged, presliced fresh fruits, such as melon or pineapple. You can add these to a container of low-fat yogurt to make an easy fruit salad.
  • Precut, trimmed meat. Trimmed meat has less fat. And meat that has already been cut into strips or cubes cuts down on your preparation time.
  • Precooked chicken. Most grocery stores sell roast chicken in the deli section. You can chop or shred the cooked chicken and use it as a filling in burritos, soups, and casseroles.
