After a long day of work, it's easier to open a can or order in than it is to make a meal from scratch. But we all know it's far healthier (and cheaper!) to make food yourself. What's a hard-working grown-up to do?

Instead of slaving over the stove every night, set aside a few hours this Sunday to make meals that will last all week long.

From casseroles to stuffed peppers, pizzas to pasta, these simple recipes can be stored in the fridge or freezer until you are ready to serve.

And you won't be stuck in the kitchen all day either — slow cooker solutions mean you can make a meal without stirring it even once.
