  • Bean burgers

  • Frozen bananas (Hello banana nice cream!)

I’ve also enjoyed batch cooking. If you have a day in the house try making multiple meals, portioning them out and leaving them to cool down, pop them in the freezer with a label of what they are and when they were made. This way you always have a meal to hand, and can avoid ordering takeaways or buying ready meals. Much healthier, much cheaper and much kinder to the planet!
