Thanks for taking the time to come check out my blog on healthy recipes anyone can put together. Unfortunately, there is a belief that many Americans have been “spoon-fed,” about good taking a long time to put together. Because of this, “fast food” has become the norm. When I write “fast food,” I don’t just mean the franchises. I mean fast food like microwave dinners, already-prepared meats in packages, already-cooked meats in cans, and on and on. Anything we can get our hands on and eat within a few minutes of deciding to is what I consider to be fast food.
If you would have brought up that idea to people fifty years ago, they would have looked at you strange. Fast food was something that was seen as “special.” On Fridays, and/or Saturdays, it was customary for Dad to come home with burgers for the family. Today, we can see people eating fast food from franchises as many as three to four times a week! The rest of the time, fast foods like microwaveable dinners and pre-packaged meals are what’s being eaten; so for all intents and purposes – people are eating fast food almost all the time!
This is sad, and totally unhealthy. Having a good, nutritious meal does not have to a long time to put together. My hope with this site is to be able to show how to do just that. Some of these meals will be prepared, others cooked. Some will take a few minutes to put together for those on the run, and others will take an hour, or more, for the food purists. Whatever the case, you can be sure that you will most likely find what you are looking for here. Once again, thanks for showing up, and I hope to keep seeing you again and again.
Take care – Susan
