5 healthy make- ahead meals
For busy folks, it’s tempting to get restaurant meals to go or resort to prepackaged frozen dinners you can throw in the microwave then serve. But for those who want to eat healthy, a better solution is make- ahead meals.
Cookbook author and food columnist Ellie Krieger has dialed into this trend and made it the focus of her new cookbook, “You Have It Made: Delicious, Healthy, Do- Ahead Meals”( Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). Each meal can be made in advance then refrigerated or frozen, and we’ve reprinted five of them here. As she recommends, you’ll need heavy- duty aluminum foil, plastic wrap, freezer- safe zip- top bags and a permanent marker ( for labeling meals).
