  You can pretty much find a convenience item for anything these days including pre-diced, veggies, instant potatoes, frozen pizzas, etc. Sometimes it’s handy to be able to rely on these types of foods, but I think for the most part we should be preparing them ourselves. The more we can make from scratch, the healthier we will be and the more money we will save. I already make a few of these items listed, but a lot of them I plan to try soon and I’m pretty excited!
