It’s a New Year! Resolve to Make Kitchen Time Easier with Cook Once, Eat Twice Meals

Kick off 2018 with easy, healthy and delicious family meals using time saving recipes.

Kick off 2018 with easy, healthy and delicious family meals using time saving recipes. These Cook Once, Eat Twice recipes start with preparing a protein that doubles as the base for a next day meal. You won’t be cooking all day. Dinner, done. Lunch or dinner tomorrow, done.

The versatility of canola oil lends itself well to these Cook Once, Eat Twice recipes. Not only is it healthy, canola oil handles all the cooking oil needs, such as high heat, refrigeration, and a marinade preparation. And its neutral flavor means the sweet, savory or zesty flavors of each dish shine.

“The more you cook your own meals, the more you control portion sizes and ingredients. Knowing the right oil to use is essential. I like using canola oil to keep the flavors of your dishes intact due to its neutral taste and light texture. Plus, it contains high levels of monounsaturated fat and plant-based omega 3 fat, and low saturated fat. I use it regularly in my home kitchen and recommend it to clients.”
