Meal Prepping? Use That Boiling Water For Some Bonus Tea Drinks
By Angel Albring
Meal prepping may seem overwhelming, but once you get the hang of it, it can save a lot of time and money, and reduce the stress of trying to figure out what to eat each day.
There are some ways to save time as you meal prep and make the process more effective, including using boiling water for multiple things, like vegetables and teas.
If you are already boiling water for vegetables or pasta, you can just boil some extra water for a gallon or two of iced tea to enjoy with your prepped meals.
For a large batch, let the boiled water cool for a few minutes, add tea bags to a heatproof pitcher, and pour the hot water over the tea, letting it steep for 3 to 5 minutes.
After removing the bags, add sugar or sweetener and herbs, like mint or lavender, if you want to. Then, place the pitcher in your fridge and enjoy it throughout the week.
