One quick food tip and (sort of quick) recipe this busy month…
When you’re busy it’s great to have grab ‘n’ go food in the fridge. When you have many extra events and tasks, aka “December”, batch cook food that is easily portable. Something solid and delicious that re-fuels you quickly so you’re not dependent on food from outside your home at a time when you are feeling a little more vulnerable.
Enter Turkey Patties Power Snack Recipe – yum, yum. These aren’t super quick to make, but you can make a big batch and keep them in your fridge or freezer, for a nourishing power snack, breakfast, lunch, or dinner. When your immune system is under more stress, take better care of yourself by carving out a little time to stock your fridge/freezer with “grab and go” food to carry you through the home stretch this holiday season!
