Convenience food is… convenient. But it is also expensive and is sometimes less healthy than its home made counterparts. I tend to rely on convenience foods during busy seasons in my life when I know the alternative might be the drive-thru lane at Chick-Fil-A. Nothing against Chick-Fil-A, but it adds up quickly.
Here are a few links to some of the foods I would likely buy prepackaged to save time. These DIY recipes are all easy, healthier, and if you spend a little bit of time prepping these in advance they are a convenient alternative to buying the prepacked stuff.
Do you make any convenience foods? What are some of your favorites?
