The learning project experience has become a lot easier and I am finding that it has become much easier to find new recipes and simple ways to cook food. For todays meal I am using the slow cooker again and trying to have something ready to go for the “fam” when they get home from school/work. The food needs to be ready to roll when they walk in the door because they have to go to swimming lessons right after supper. I am cooking a pork tenderloin meal that I found on youtube with some baked veggies and minute rice. I do not think that kids are going to like this meal so this will be a strong indicator of bias if they say they like it.
There will also be a rant at the end of this post regarding some of the struggles that families are facing to maintain a healthy diet.
And the responses.
I am going to try and spend some time next week prepping some freezer meals for the slow cooker. Should be interesting, but I feel like I need to because of my lack of preparation last week led to a family stop at McDonalds. I was a bit miffed when I got home from work and saw the remains of 2 Happy Meals in the garbage. I have been looking into some of the issues surrounding nutrition and how difficult it is with the pace of life to keep up with healthy eating. I think that there are 2 things that I want to look into for my next post.
- The cost of eating healthy
- The ease of eating unhealthy
