I've got a triple kicker here for you guys. Looking for ideas to help resolve my difficulties with meal prep and fresh food eating!
A few obstacles I have are,
1. My fiance and I live in a 385 SQ foot studio apartment with three cats, a hamster, and a dog. He doesn't work due to his disability and I'm the primary breadwinner, I work an active job as a dog groomer full time and while he is an amazing partner I also do a lot more of the tasks around the house and some degree of caretaking. We have different dietary needs. Therefore... I'm a pretty tired human a lot of the time, making cooking hard (not to mention my own autism and anxiety making motivation a challenge).
2. Therefore, I don't have tons of money.
3. The fridge installed in our apartment is
a dorm/mini fridge. As mentioned above, the apartment is too small to add another fridge.
I am lucky enough to have a stove, oven, and air fryer though! Taking prepped meals to store in the fridge at work is also a possibility. I hope to move to a bigger place with a normal fridge next year.
What are your shelf-stable, fridge-space-saving, low-energy, or low-expense tips? I'd appreciate any of them you've got for me!
