Now THAT’S meal prepping! Mum-of-two chops up all her vegetables for the entire YEAR – including 20kg of potatoes, 15kg of carrots and 10kg of onion

  • A mum of two and ex chef showed off her impressive frozen food prep
  • The working mum jokingly said she expects it to last the family ‘the next year’
  • She included 15kg of carrot, 20kg of potatoes, 15kg of sweet potatoes and more
  • The woman said she spent $80 on wholesale veg in order to prep the food

A budget-savvy mother-of-two has showed off her impressive freezer filled with frozen vegetables, which she intends to feed her family with for the next year.

The mum and ex-chef shared a snap of her giant freezer and her chopped vegetables in zip-lock bags, writing ‘Veg prep for what feels like the next year lol’.

Included in the selection was 15 kilograms of carrot, 20 kilograms of potatoes, 15 kilograms of sweet potatoes and more.’

She wrote in a Facebook post: ’15kg of carrot: sliced, roast chunks and chopped.

’20kg of Sebago potatoes: roast chunks, sliced for potato baked and diced for mash.

’15kg of sweet potato: roast chunks, sliced for potato bake and diced for mash.

’10kg of onion: sliced, chopped and chunks for roast, onion rings.

‘2kg of zucchini: julienne and roast chunks.’

Her freezer also included one kilo of capsicum, sliced, two pumpkins in chunks and 10 kilograms of tomatoes, which she had diced.

The woman said she bought the vegetables wholesale for a total of $80.

The freezer post was a hit with others online, who wrote comments like: ‘Now that’s being organised’ and ‘Wow’.

Some questioned how the woman managed to find the time to carry out such a meal prepping feat, and she said ‘it helps that I used to be a chef’.

The mum said the reason why she did it is because she currently has ‘six adults and two kids’ living under one roof.

‘I do it so I don’t have to waste time every night chopping up veg for dinner, as we all work and I have uni and the two kids have after school sports,’ she said.

Others asked whether the mum had ‘pre-cooked’ any of the vegetables before putting them in the bags in the freezer.

‘None of this is pre-cooked and the roast vegetables turn out great,’ the woman replied.

‘Just need to thaw out properly so I take it all out the night before. Diced up carrot and onion and that type of stuff is for slow cooker and spaghetti etc.’

She also said that onion doesn’t smell out a freezer, provided it is kept tightly locked in a zip-lock bag.

Some in the Facebook group have been inspired by the mum to take on extreme meal prepping.

‘Thank you for sharing,’ one person wrote.

‘I was thinking I need to meal prep on a weekend because I work a 10-hour day and travel 45 minutes to and from work.

‘I am exhausted when I get home for hubby and two adult kids. This is a great way to be organised to eat healthier, love my veggies!

‘Just add meat for the main, will save you dollar on takeout and unhealthy alternative choices.’

Tornadoes

Tornadoes can destroy your home, your business, buildings, flip cars, and create deadly flying debris. Tornadoes are violently rotating columns of air that extend from a thunderstorm to the ground. Tornadoes can:

  • Happen anytime and anywhere;
  • Bring intense winds, over 200 MPH; and
  • Look like funnels.

 IF YOU ARE UNDER A TORNADO WARNING, FIND SAFE SHELTER RIGHT AWAY

  • If you can safely get to a sturdy building, then do so immediately.
  • Go to a safe room, basement, or storm cellar.
  • If you are in a building with no basement, then get to a small interior room on the lowest level.
  • Stay away from windows, doors, and outside walls.
  • Do not get under an overpass or bridge. You’re safer in a low, flat location.
  • Watch out for flying debris that can cause injury or death.
  • Use your arms to protect your head and neck.

HOW TO STAY SAFE WHEN A TORNADO THREATENS

Prepare NOW

  • Know your area’s tornado risk. In the U.S., the Midwest and the Southeast have a greater risk for tornadoes.
  • Know the signs of a tornado, including a rotating, funnel-shaped cloud; an approaching cloud of debris; or a loud roar—similar to a freight train.
  • Sign up for your community’s warning system. The Emergency Alert System (EAS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio also provide emergency alerts. If your community has sirens, then become familiar with the warning tone.
  • Pay attention to weather reports. Meteorologists can predict when conditions might be right for a tornado.
  • Identify and practice going to a safe shelter in the event of high winds, such as a safe room built using FEMA criteria or a storm shelter built to ICC 500 standards. The next best protection is a small, interior, windowless room on the lowest level of a sturdy building.
  • Consider constructing your own safe room that meets FEMA or ICC 500 standards.

 Survive DURING

  • Immediately go to a safe location that you identified.
  • Take additional cover by shielding your head and neck with your arms and putting materials such as furniture and blankets around you.
  • Listen to EAS, NOAA Weather Radio, or local alerting systems for current emergency information and instructions.
  • Do not try to outrun a tornado in a vehicle.
  • If you are in a car or outdoors and cannot get to a building, cover your head and neck with your arms and cover your body with a coat or blanket, if possible.

Be Safe AFTER

  • Keep listening to EAS, NOAA Weather Radio, and local authorities for updated information.
  • If you are trapped, cover your mouth with a cloth or mask to avoid breathing dust. Try to send a text, bang on a pipe or wall, or use a whistle instead of shouting.
  • Stay clear of fallen power lines or broken utility lines.
  • Do not enter damaged buildings until you are told that they are safe.
  • Save your phone calls for emergencies. Phone systems are often down or busy after a disaster. Use text messaging or social media to communicate with family and friends.
  • Be careful during clean-up. Wear thick-soled shoes, long pants, and work gloves.

STUDY: ONE THIRD OF AMERICANS LIE ON AUTO INSURANCE APPLICATIONS

 

Most people agree that honesty is the best policy, but when it comes to filling out insurance applications, many consumers are willing to fudge the truth to get a better rate. According to a study from finder.com, an estimated 35 million Americans have lied on an insurance application.

Almost one in three (29 percent) of the people who have lied on an insurance application have done so for car insurance. That amounts to 10.2 million Americans who were willing to lie to get the best coverage for the road.

Following car insurance, false information is most likely to appear on applications for health insurance (22 percent), life insurance (21 percent), income protection insurance (8 percent), travel insurance (7 percent), home and contents insurance (7 percent) and pet insurance (5 percent).

More men lie than women, but women are more likely than men to lie on an application in five of seven categories: health insurance, income protection insurance, travel insurance, home and contents insurance and pet insurance. Men lead women when it comes to lying on car insurance and life insurance applications.

“Taking creative liberties on your insurance application may seem like an innocent white lie, but it’s actually considered fraud, and the repercussions can be serious. If found out you may be charged a higher premium, denied a policy or even charged with fraud, requiring you to pay a fine or even do jail time,” said Finder’s consumer advocate Rachel Dix- Kessler.

Purchases that end up costing you

Researching prices and finding deals can be a time-consuming process for many adults, which makes responsible spending a burden. While some big-ticket items can be rewarding, some bad purchases just won’t justify the price over time, no matter how much you try to rationalize the decision.
