With the onset of the Back to School season, schedules get busier and we know it gets harder and harder to prepare healthy and satiating meals every evening. Maintaining healthy nutrition is important to fuel your young athlete’s growing body and mind. But, good news! Preparing tasty and nutritious meals doesn’t have to be a daunting or timely task. Here at FlipGive, we have teamed up with Boxed to give you some tips and tricks on cheats for weeknight meals and school lunches. 

Preparing meals in advance is an effective way to reduce cooking time (and stress!) throughout the week. Meal prepping is a strategy that involves cooking several meals at once to stock up in the fridge for later. Although it's a larger time requirement upfront, it’ll save you time and energy later (like on practice night!). However, if you’re not a fan of meal prepping, leftovers can also be a lifesaver! Next time you’re cooking, increase the amount of food you prepare so you can have leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch or dinner. Moreover, leftovers and meal prepping are also efficient ways to simplify school lunches. It's an easy (and tasty!) tactic that decreases stress.

Boxed is your one-stop shop for everything you need to accomplish quick and healthy meals. Purchasing your groceries and home essentials in bulk is an easy way to save money and time! Buying items in larger quantities usually results in a better price per volume, and it also saves you from making additional trips to the store. Running errands is the last thing you want to do in between racing the kids from school to practice. It’s much more convenient to have extra supplies on hand when you’re in a rush. In addition, utilizing websites like Boxed allows you to completely skip the trip to the store! With Boxed, you have the opportunity to shop from the comfort of your home, save time, score better deals, and earn cash back for your team… It's a win, win, win, win!

Furthermore, Boxed has a plethora of small appliances that are very effective for creating easy and tasty meals; microwave ovens, air fryers, and sandwich grills all facilitate quick and simple meals, while amplifying the taste. For example, an air fryer can cook tender salmon in 10 minutes, restaurant-quality chicken wings, or crispy veggies ... There is tremendous potential for tasty meals! Don’t avoid extra appliances because you’re worried about the cost, Boxed has great prices so you don’t have to break the bank to amp up your kitchen.
