Cooking should not be stressful. Cooking should be relaxing and fun! If you need to prepare dinner in a rush, don’t search for something you can throw into the microwave. Relax and remind yourself that a meal you cooked from scratch is so much more rewarding than popping food into the microwave.
As the cook, you’ll also be able to control the nutrition and caloric content of your entire meal. You’ll be choosing the ingredients and will know exactly what’s going into your meal. Did you ever wonder how companies are able to sell frozen meals for $1.99 when the equivalent fresh ingredients might cost $15.00? It should make you wonder what’s really in that $1.99 frozen meal.
