moving-friendly meals - Phoenix Movers

The week before and after moving day is typically stressful. Your items are in boxes, you are living with the barebone essentials, and the days are long while you pack or unpack. While ordering out is a simple and easy solution, it can get tiresome if you are doing it day after day. There is nothing like a good home-cooked meal! As you prepare for your relocation, don’t let your nutrition go by the wayside. We have twelve easy moving-friendly meals that require minimal ingredients and kitchen equipment and will keep you going as you pack or unpack your belongings.

Sheet Pan Dinners

If you have not tried any sheet pan dinner recipes, you are missing out on quick and easy meals! As the name suggests, everything is made on a sheet pan. All sheet pan recipes are great options for moving-friendly meals because you only need the ingredients, a cutting board, a knife, aluminum foil, and a sheet pan. And the best part, typically the recipes cook within 30 minutes. We can already hear the dinner bell ringing!

Here are a few of our favorites:

Crock-Pot Meals

The Crock-Pot is a tried-and-true kitchen essential. Just like the sheet pan dinners, all Crock-Pot recipes are simple moving-friendly meals. Keep the Crock-Pot out, grab a knife and cutting board, and pick up the ingredients. The best part about these recipes – throw everything in the Crock-Pot and forget about it. You can go back to packing or unpacking and have a delicious meal ready to go in a few hours.

Skillet Meals

Are you catching onto the trend? All the recipes need one kitchen cookware item, a cutting board, a knife, and ingredients. If you have limited space, pick one cookware item – sheet pan, crockpot, skillet – and plan your moving-friendly meals based around that.

The best part about these recipes is that they typically yield 4-8 servings, which means leftovers! It is like a 2-for-1 special.

Having planned moving-friendly meals for your relocation week can decrease stress, maximize your time, and save you money. When you put together your unpacking kit, be sure to have your meals planned so you know what kitchen equipment to include in it.
