Make your own meals. Instead of buying prepared meals, frozen dinners, boxed and packaged stuff, start with fresh meats or seafood, vegetables and herbs – local and organic where possible – and keep it simple but nutritious and delicious. At first, it seems like more time and trouble but once you make it a habit and rediscover cooking, you can get pretty fast and efficient. And save money, too.
