Too Busy to Cook? The Real Food for Busy People E-Course Can Help!
Posted Aug 12 2013 7:12pm
Let’s face it, cooking real food from scratch can feel overwhelming. We are busy people on limited budgets. Feeding our families is a constant juggling act.
Should we opt for convenience at the cost of nutrition? Should we sacrifice time with our families in order to feed them more nourishing food?
If you’ve been following my blog for long, you’ll know that raising a small child while struggling with a major, chronic illness makes cooking real food on a budget a big challenge in my house. In my home, the following scenarios are all-too-common.
Maybe you’ll recognize one or two of them yourself…
ONE. It’s a half hour before dinner. You’ve had a hectic day and you’re already exhausted. No meat’s defrosted. You’ve got tons of fresh veggies about to go bad. Everyone is starving and cranky. What do you do?
TWO. You open the fridge to realize you are out of virtually everything. You’ve got young children and have no desire to drive to the grocery store, park, then deal with their mischief while you shop, load the car, and then drive home. The THOUGHT exhausts you, let alone actually doing it. What do you do?
THREE. You are going to be out running errands or taking your kids to activities all day. How do you pack convenient, nutritious real food to feed your family that will stay fresh? What do you do?
Are You Falling for These Cooking Myths?
Too often, we don’t do enough planning. (I sure don’t.) You didn’t plan ahead for dinner, so nothing’s defrosted. You don’t plan what you’re going to do with all those beautiful, fresh veggies, so they’re rapidly going bad. Or maybe you planned both, but life’s unexpected surprises made it impossible to follow through.
Does this mean another scrambled egg dinner, again?
What if I told you that even on nights like these, you could still get a meaty, nourishing meal on the table in just a half hour?
(Even if you’re starting with frozen meat!)
Sometimes, in the rush to get to school, work, activities and more, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to make a wholesome, real food meal.
So, what are you supposed to do? Eat from the drive-through? Grab a pre-packaged, processed snack from the pantry, just so you and the kids have something in your bellies, even if it is laden with empty calories, sugar, GMOs, and other junk?
What if I told you that even on days like these, you could still feed your family a nutrient-dense meal in just 2-3 minutes?
Really—start to finish!
Running out of food happens to me all. the. time. And the prospect of going shopping with little ones in tow is enough to send a person over the edge into despair.
So, what do you do? Suck it up and hope the grocery trip doesn’t mess with your sanity too much? Scrounge an unappealing dinner from your pantry and freezer staples and hope you have more energy tomorrow? Spend a bunch of money eating out because you couldn’t bring yourself to make it to the store?
We’ve all been there.
What if I told you that you didn’t have to make long, exhausting trips to the store? That you could have your organic groceries and bulk goods delivered right to your doorstep?
How much of a relief would that be?
It really seems like preparing nutritious meals from scratch is an involved affair, one you just can’t do on the road while running errands.
Alternatives involve eating out at a restaurant that surely uses GMOs, soybean or canola oil for all its food preparation. Or worse, you could simply blast through a drive-thru and eat in the car!
While that may work if you’re only talking about yourself, what happens when you add your children or spouse to the picture?
What if I told you that you could pack nutrient-dense meals that stayed fresh, cool or hot? All you need is the right lunch containers and a little bit of forethought.
How much of a difference would that make for you?
Want to Defy These Myths?
Just how do busy people make cooking real food from scratch easy, fast, efficient, and convenient?
Let me tell you about something that might just change your life.
Get dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes — even if you’re starting with frozen meat
Save time shopping by buying in bulk and automating purchases
Save time through faster meal prep and freezer-cooking
Make quick, nutrient-dense breakfasts
Pack real food lunches that don’t require heating or that stay hot
Save time by outsourcing (children, husband, & professionals can all help!)
Survive road trips and avoid fast food
But you should know, this is NOT a recipe course.
While it is true that there are more than 50 recipes included in the program, this is first and foremost a class about cooking technique.
You will learn HOW to chop vegetables quickly, HOW to shave time off your meal preparation, HOW to make cooking nutrient-dense, real food meals from scratch convenient.
For example, did you know you can make bone broth in 4 hours or that you can freeze ferments?
I didn’t! I can’t wait to learn more!
