Fast and Nutritious Meals for Busy People

Working moms often have this problem: how to feed her family hot, nutritious and fast meals at least once a day. A balanced diet is difficult to maintain when all the hours of one day are budgeted down to the last minute.

Good thing, there are lots of delicious dishes with simple recipes and quick cooking time to help homemakers -- like the sautéed corned beef and cabbage -- that even dads and kids can easily prepare. The ingredients are not expensive but bursting with good stuff for the body such as protein and vitamins C, B, and A.

When shopping for food, always buy the cheapest vegetables but make sure they are fresh since they will be stored in the refrigerator for days.

Tips on How to Give Veggies Longer Storage Life

  1. After washing the veggies, drain well and spread on a clean cloth to air-dry.
  2. To seal in freshness, wrap the vegetables in old clean newspaper sheets.
  3. Wrap veggies in pairs or in group, according to what planned recipes need.
  4. Write the veggies' name and the date bought on the wrapper.
  5. Put the wrapped leafy vegetables on top to avoid crushing.
  6. Do not peel or cut the vegetables to be stored.
