Cooking during the week probably feels like another chore to add to your never-ending list. Most of the time, you probably order takeout or eat whatever you can find buried in your fridge. Unfortunately, bad eating habits can lead to a poor mental and physical state, which is why it’s so important to nourish yourself with healthy food. This is why we’ve curated a list of the best air fryer hacks that’ll simplify your weeknights.
All it takes is a bit of planning, meal preparation, and simple cooking hacks. According to RDN Basheerah Enahora, “I definitely think meal prepping helps us with just living well in general. When we put some thought into it, we’re more likely to pick up really nutrient-rich foods from the grocery store. We have a list that’s decided in advance.” These hacks make cooking easy, fun, delicious, and nutritious! Doesn’t that sound appetizing?
We all know the traditional way of making ravioli, and that’s to dump it into a pot of boiling water until it’s soft enough to eat. But that can get old pretty quickly, especially if you’ve tried every filling under the sun. That’s where the air fryer comes in! Instead of soaking ravioli in oil and deep drying it, you can use your air fryer. Simply dip ravioli in egg, cheese, and breadcrumbs, then air fry at 375°F (190°C). This makes a crispy appetizer, snack, or meal, depending on the portion, without a greasy mess that’ll make you feel tired and bloated. You can make a delicious tomato sauce to go with the ravioli, and a side of greens for a full meal (All Recipes).
