You Gotta Start Somewhere

Unknown-3

Learn to cook.

For instance, if you need to know more, go to a site like StartCooking.com:

Are you a busy person who just never got around to learning the basics of cooking? We built startcooking.com just for you. You’ll learn how to make quick and tasty meals, plus learn the basic cooking skills you’ll need. Get ready to start cooking!

Then, go to the store, buy some vegetables and fruits. When you get them home, chop them up and peel them. Get them ready to use, so that when you need to use them you are just measuring and putting it in the food. It make cooking so easy that you can do it in no time flat.

Try these tips from craftsy.com on what to do with your food you just got at the store. It adds a few more minutes to the shopping trip, but you have to put the food away anyway, and usually doing it like this saves you room in your pantry and refrigerator.

Lettuce, spinach and similar greens

In the refrigerator: Cut or tear the leaves from the end of the head, if applicable. Wash and dry the leaves thoroughly (such as in a salad spinner). Remove any dead or wilted leaves. Once dry, place in one or two thin layers on top of paper towels. Gently roll the towels, so that you have almost like a jelly roll cake, but the cake is the paper towel and the filling is the greens. Secure with a rubber band.

In the freezer: Freezing leafy greens is not suggested, as they will soften too much and won’t retain their crispy texture.

“Wilted” greens, such as cooked kale, spinach or beet greens, can be frozen once cooked; drain thoroughly and store in freezer bags for up to a year.

If you think you don’t have time for cooking, or you don’t want to learn how to feed yourself, keep on eating processed and additive-laden foods “for convenience”. I have mountains of proof here in the archives that you are killing yourself and your family doing it. But, like they say, time is money. Then again, they say “When you got your health you have everything”. Everything sounds like it’s more valuable than money, to me.
