4 One Pot Meals to Try at Home While You Attempt to Juggle it All

March 20, 2020

Life can feel hectic at times. Whenever this happens, it’s often a human instinct to cut corners on your diet. There are easier options that don’t require from-scratch ingredients so why not save myself some time and opt for those? The problem is that “easier” masquerades as “better” in the short term. Your nerves literally send a “happy signal” as a result of the time you saved.

So you cut corners again. And again. BUT when we look at the sum of those moments, they’re not as great as those happy signals chalk them up to be. AND you sadly didn’t save that much time even in the long run (you know, time, the one thing you were making the health sacrifice for), which will become extra apparent once you try these simple and healthy recipes that save you time, not just during preparation, but also after the meal since they use just a single pot or pan.

So, YOU CAN have your time and eat well too. Enjoy!
