I feel that big overhead for cooking after work is preparation. So, I usually do all prep-work during weekends. For example, I buy cheap ziplock bags at a doller shop and cut veggies and store them in a refrigerator or freezer. This saves a lot of efforts on cooking during weekdays and save time and $$$. Here are the steps.
- Get cheap ziplock bags
- Cut vegetables, fish and meat
- Organize them for one meal in ziplock bags
- Store them in refrigerator or freezer
- Cook during weekdays without too much overhead 🙂
