Tools for Holiday Meal Prep

Updated: May 6

Preparing your favorite holiday dishes can be a joyful part of celebrating the season with family and friends.

Make the most of your time in the kitchen with these tips and tools:

Get it together — bring everything to your workspace before starting (this saves both physical and mental effort); gather items and carry them in a rolling cart to save steps

Keep it simple — choose healthy recipes with fewer ingredients and one pot/pan meals (for ideas, try websites like or )

Plan ahead — make dishes beforehand so you can spend time with family and friends instead of in the kitchen; choose healthy recipes that freeze well

Focus on nutrition — expand your menu to include PD friendly recipes

Redefine homemade — follow my aunt’s favorite philosophy: heating up or opening pre-prepared food in your home is technically homemade

Tools to try for easier …
