I used to be a weight lifter, so I've been familiar with meal prepping all my meals on one day for quite some time.
Fast forward 6 years and with caregiving and constantly working overtime at my paying job, I do not have TIME for shopping, preparing, cooking, cleaning, and doing it all over again.
I get one day off from paying job per week, and the rest of my time is absolutely CONSUMED.
I found an online company that will send me vacuum sealed, wholesome, barely salted, fully cooked meals. I order enough for my entire household to get 2 meals/day 6 days a week.
It can be pretty pricey, but I was able to get the cost to $190-$230 for a family of 3 humans. YES, EXPENSIVE- but not too much more than groceries cost for my area, with no preparing and very little dishes or kitchen cleaning.
Do you guys have anything that has made such a POSITIVE impact in your care giving x life balance?
