Alternatives to takeaway

In the modern fast paced world we live in, take away and fast food is increasingly becoming a meal option that features not one but sometimes several nights a week in many households. We often work long hours and commit ourselves and our children to so many different activites, constantly running around trying to fit hundreds of things in a day.

Finally we get home or stop or finish the numerous things we were doing and then we have to think about what to cook for dinner. It's nights like this when your tired and exhausted that all it takes is the slightest hint of take away to jump on board the takeaway train!

We've all done it on plenty of occassions. And it's totally okay, quick easy and no effort can be your ultimate saviour.

But when you realise that you've eaten various forms of takeaway for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th + night in a row that you have had takeaway that it becomes a bit of a problem. It's not just about the health issues its rather expensive.

My solution is to have some quick easy options in the freezer. My favorite is ready made gf meatballs from the butchers, sauce and all. You just have to heat in pan and put rice in rice cooker. Sausages and frozen veggies is another quick option.

I'm not saying no to takeaway, I'm saying have some easy options in the freezer so you don't opt for takeaway for the 3rd night in a row.
