All Kinds of Time

You have the time.  Really you do.  I don't even need to know what you need time for, you have it.

The two biggest excuses made for not eating well are:
  1. I can't afford to eat well.
  2. I don't have the time to cook healthy meals.
The first excuse has been tackled in this post from June.  The second is about to be debunked.  

How long does it take to create a very delicious, flavorful meal for 2-4 people?   I argue it could be less than 45 min from prep to food on the plate.  And that is for a complicated meal.  Last night I made a broccoli and chicken terriaki stir-fry that took me about 15-20 min.  Here is the recipe.  1 chicken breast, a bnch of broccoli.  Cut chicken into cubes and cook.  Add terriaki sauce (to taste) then add broccoli.  Cover.  Take off heat when done.  Boom.  Easy.  Delicious.  Want extra for lunch the next day...make it two chicken breasts and a bunch more broccoli.  No extra time.  

If you plan early in the week so you have all the ingrediants then it doesnt take long at all to make nutrioutious meals.  In fact my wife has a bunch of recipes you should try, they are all delicious. Here is the link   .  She even includes pictures.

Another really great option is a slow cooker.  Here is a great recipe for a slow cooker:

1. Throw a big chunk of raw meat in.
2. Surround it with a shit ton of vegetables
3.  Turn on.
4. Go to work.
5. Come home and eat.

 And... what about slow cookers? To use, take the food and stick it in the bucket and... you know what? If you guys don't know how to use a slow cooker, just ring your call button and Tommy will come back there and hit you on the head with a tack hammer because you're a *retard*.
