Nagina Abdullah, the founder of Masala Body, recently contributed an article to Business Insider titled How I manage to work 60-plus hours a week and still find time to cook dinner every night.
“I developed an easy system for myself and my family to eat home-cooked food every night — even though I was working 60-plus hours each week. Now, I am healthier and in control of what I eat. I have an incredible level of energy I never used to have, and that helps me be more productive and confident at work than ever before.” Nagina says in the article. “Cooking my dinner each night was a turning point to getting healthier — and it’s possible for anyone that works long hours (even if you’re exhausted when you come home). ”
In the article, she discusses her 3-step technique for meal planning-
- Devote one hour on Sunday to meal prep
- Store food in glass containers, which helps them keep their freshness longer
- Each weeknight, spend 10 minutes making an easy protein
By making these changes, and other tips she covers in the article, Nagina is able to eat a healthy, home-cooked meal every night.
