Sweet Potato Meat Loaf with Mashed Cauliflower

Preparing meals for your family can be five times as easy if you set up a cooking co-op this week. Just recruit four other parents in your neighborhood to each prepare one huge healthy dinner choice (enough to feed five families). Then trade meals via Tupperware. The end results? Less time in the kitchen and more meal variety during the week: a win-win for the whole family. Try multiplying these recipe ideas which are perfect for creating big batch meals.
