0 Cooking For the Time-Challenged :)
I know that this isn't a very chef-like thing to admit, but lately I haven't felt much like cooking or creating new recipes. GASP!
Part of the reason for this is that I've been really, really busy, particularly with various work-related projects & marathon-training, & so, haven't had much time to cook. In these situations, I usually revert back to making simple & healthy meals which take "2 seconds" to make. That also usually means falling back on "old standbys," many of which happen to be found in this very blog. Yes, it's probably no surprise that I use this blog as my very own online cookbook. :)
Anyhow, I just wanted to say that there's NOTHING wrong with cooking simple meals. The kind that have 3 or 4 ingredients made from fresh whole foods. In fact, sometimes these meals can be the best, most enjoyable kind.
Normally, I like complexity -- in flavors, etc. -- and absolutely love making elaborate, gourmet dishes when & if time allows -- but right now, I just don't have the bandwidth. So simple & fresh is what's for breakfast, lunch, & dinner.
At some point (READ: when I can find the time), I'd like to post a few of these meal suggestions, which hopefully will help make your lives easier, healthier, & happier.
Some of you might recall that a while back I'd posted a series on my running blog called "Simple, Healthy Meals." I'm thinking about reviving that series, transferring over some of the recipes here, & adding a few new ones to the mix.
In the meantime, check out this post.
