How many times, as both a dedicated homemaker and a driven career-oriented individual, have you found yourself yearning for the magic of a well-prepared kitchen that sets the stage for a seamless start to your day? The concept of prepping, whether it involves preparations or pre-planning your meals and menus, has long been hailed as the key to a smoother daily routine. But here’s the intriguing question: Is it wise to extend your prepping efforts to span an entire week or even multiple days in advance?
This notion has recently occupied our thoughts, triggered by a chance discovery of a recipe on the Eat Delicious food blogging page. The recipe in question introduces an all-purpose gravy base with an impressive twist — it can be stored for more than 60 days.
It left us pondering whether this practice, while undoubtedly time-saving, aligns with the broader concept of a healthy lifestyle.
“In our busy lives, sometimes we don’t have enough time to cook gravy recipes, thereby we prefer eating outside. But this is definitely not a healthy case scenario. So, for such busy days, it is the best to plan your week ahead and do meal planning accordingly — may it be grocery shopping, or chopping vegetables or making some masalas,” said clinical dietitian Garima Goyal, adding that, it is far better than eating out, or eating unhealthily.
