Season meat in 3 different ways in a dish
The problem with lean meats like chicken is that after a while you get tired of their taste. To save time and awaken your taste buds, prepare 3 varieties of chicken recipes in one go! The trick is to use aluminium foil to make 3 small containers. But it works just as well on the baking sheet or in another dish if you don’t want to use aluminium foil. Then let yourself go! Try 3 different recipes in one baking tray: hot sauce, barbecue sauce, mustard sauce. That’s 3 dishes in 1 cooking time.
Cook the hard-boiled eggs in the oven and not in a saucepan.
Eggs have an excellent supply of protein, vitamins (A and B) and good fats. But there’s just one small problem: it’s difficult to keep more than 5 eggs in a pan. Luckily, there is a trick to baking a dozen eggs at once: bake them in a muffin tin. Just half an hour and you’re done! You’ve got a dozen perfectly baked hard-boiled eggs. Little tip: do a little test baking with 1 egg before trying to bake a dozen. That way, you can be sure that your oven is working well (neither too hot nor too cold).
Freeze your smoothies in muffin tins.
Smoothies are good, especially in the morning. On the other hand, who has the time to cut up and put all those ingredients in the blender every morning? Save time by buying all your smoothies ingredients in bulk. Then put them in a blender and freeze the smoothies in small batches in a pan or muffin tin. That’s it! Now it only takes a few moments to make a great smoothie. Just take 2-3 scoops of smoothie out of your freezer. Put them in a blender and you have a quick and easy breakfast.
