This adventure has been interesting. First of all, one doesn't realize how dependent you are on the appliances in your life. Something as simple as heating soup became a task. I think we managed very well, we had a few interruptions in our day that brought us to local restaurants for supper. If time were more available, I'm sure I would have been able to concoct better food choices. It's just so easy when you can pop in a premade casserole. Our food choices haven't been so very healthy this last month. I think this happens a lot with families. Time, money and events get in the way of a nice home cooked meal. Being replaced with a quick fast food drive through or a sit down meal away from home that has a serving size two or three times larger than what you would eat at home.
Maybe this is part of the health and weight issues we face as a society. We no longer value time with family, our home or sitting down at home to eat together. Some do, but many have after school activities, sports, music lessons, meetings and other socializing. This makes for quick meals. Made from a box with preservatives or a drive through.
This past month has shown me quite a few things. How we eat, plan our meals, how busy we get, how busy others are and how they eat. It was interesting to say the least. I hope to pre-plan meals that can be made quickly so that we do not have to eat out unless it is for a treat. I may not be the best cook, as I really like to bake, but I am willing to take a shot at better options. And so the adventure continues just with a stove to work with!
P.S. We are always open to ideas and suggestions!
