One of the best and easiest ways to cut costs and minimise effort with cooking is to meal prep. That's why I have such an array of healthy and nutritious meal prep recipes on Beat the Budget. Almost every meal prep recipe is freezable. You can implement something I call a 'freezer cycle', where you freeze a couple of portions of each recipe, meaning you have a huge selection to grab throughout the week. There's over 200 meal prep recipes to try, from Creamy Tuscan Inspired Rigatoni with Pork Mince, Halloumi and Sweet Potato Tex-Mex Bowls, to Crispy Soy Tofu and Aubergine & Rice.
