As much as I love feeding my family Real Food, a big challenge of eating Real Food is figuring out how to NOT be in the kitchen all day preparing it. I get asked lots of questions about Real Food and the top two are probably 1) Where do I start? and 2) How can I make it quicker?
Honestly, I think Real Food often takes longer to prepare. Not because it’s harder to make, but because if you are choosing to eat unprocessed, whole, nourishing foods, you are going to have to make them yourself. No more ripping open a cardboard box, heating up part of it, mixing in the other part and calling it dinner. Instead, you will be baking it slowly in the oven or crockpot, peeling, dicing, sauteing, roasting, drizzling, mixing and seasoning. And you know what? It’s going to taste SO MUCH BETTER. I can almost guarantee that it’s also going to be more enjoyable to eat, too. Why? Because things that take time cause us to appreciate them more, savoring every bite.
