So many of us are uninformed of what actually is in the food we eat. This is the case when we eat "quick" meals at home out of a box, but it is especially the case when we eat fast food! Here is an article that hopefully will make you think twice about going through the drive-thru of a fast food restaurant:
Do You Have Any Idea of the Chemicals Used in Fast Food Chicken
The reason we go eat fast food is because so often we are too busy to cook after a long day of work and helping the kids with school work or toting them to sports lessons or other places. One thing I do is cook foods ahead of time and put them in the freezer. Then, I thaw the meal out in the refrigerator in the morning before leaving for work. This saves preparation time when I arrive home, and all I need to do is bake it! Other things I do is use the crock-pot or cook quick recipes with fresh ingredients. One of my favorite cook books has a big section on 15, 20, and 30 minute meals...this includes the time needed to prepare and cook it. And when I am working as well as a mom to two young children, I need all of the short cuts I can take without resorting to fast food! I would love to here what other people do to make nutritious meals in a hurry. Key words are "nutritious" and "hurry"!
