Traveler Tips: Quick One Skillet Meals

As a traveler, sometimes you don’t have the time – or energy – to make quick / healthy meals for lunch and dinner every day. On the flip side of that, the daily trips to the café or getting food delivered while on your break can’t be good for your wallet. Hands down, one skillet meals are the way to go. They are quick, easy and can be a fun as you want to make them.

One skillet meals are the best for 3 reasons:

  • Clean up is minimal – you literally use one skillet
  • Ideal for batch cooking – you can make more than you need for one meal, then freeze the extras and take for the rest of the week
  • Easy way to add some variety into your diet – there are hundreds (if not thousands) of recipes to try; you can make a different dish for every week of your assignment
