We all lead busy lives, so we know that sometimes the thought of preparing a home-cooked meal isn’t quite as appetising as throwing a ready meal into the oven or pressing ‘order’ on your favourite takeaway website. But what if we told you there were ways to have a hearty and healthy meal on the dinner table in less time and taking up less energy than cooking everything from scratch?

We’ve got three ways to make your life easier without sacrificing mouthwatering home-made dishes:
