As finals are fast approaching, I’ve found that I have less and less time to cook, let alone cook all of my meal-prep meals in one day. What you don’t want to do during this time is slip into only eating frozen meals. This will leave you feeling tired and sluggish, and whenever I slip into this bad habit I feel guilty, like I’m letting myself down. Just plan to cook simple meals, ones that don’t take too much prep or cooking time, and if need be you can throw in one or two microwave dinners that you don’t have to worry about.
My best advice for managing your time during finals is make a list: prioritize what you need (that big test for your english class, and at least 2 full, healthy meals a day is a must!!), and decide what you can and cannot put on the back-burner. If you worry about having to do everything all at once, you’ll get overwhelmed and it will take much longer to finish, and probably in a poorer quality. In the spirit of my own final papers and projects, I planned this blog post to be shorter than usual. Good luck everyone!
