5 Things We Learned About Meal Prep from Instagram — On Trend

By now it's probably obvious that we're pretty obsessed with meal prepping at Kitchn. Sure, it might not be as sexy as whipping something up on the fly, but meal prepping provides a host of benefits, including saving you money, helping you eat more healthfully, and ensuring that those hanger pains stay at bay.

While there are a ton of posts out there for recipe ideas and schedules for meal prepping, sometimes the only way to get inspired is by seeing it in action, which is why I love looking through the #mealprep tag on Instagram.

Twitter Is Obsessed With This Brilliant Way to Save Recipes — Food Media

The way we have saved our favorite recipes has changed drastically in the last couple decades. Recipe cards were the norm in the past, alongside clipping recipes out of magazines and newspapers. But then came the internet, and with it new ways to keep track of recipes were available, including Paprika and Pinterest. It can't get much easier than these digital, right? What could possibly be better?

Print These 5 Recipes from the New York Times Before You Have to Pay — Food Media

Yesterday Sam Sifton announced that the cooking section of the New York Times is going to go behind a paywall. Readers and cooks can sign up for a 28-day free trial, but after that they have to pay five dollars a month to get access to recipes. If you already have a New York Times subscription, you can access the cooking site as a part of that package.

This change, according to Sifton, is not to punish readers, but to let editors and recipe developers continue to produce an excellent product. "The work we do is expensive, and we want to do more of it. We travel ceaselessly, and cook every day. We test our recipes relentlessly. We photograph and make videos about them, we think beautifully," says Sifton in the announcement.
