FOOD HAS BECOME EASIER TO PREPARE
Lately, the progression affected all levels of our lives, including food preparation. There are still some people cooking in traditional way, spending plenty of time in the kitchen, especially in rural areas. On the other hand, more and more people take advantage of many kitchen ads, frozen foods, and semi-home made recipes. I believe that this change improves the way people live, especially in urban areas.
Living at a fast pace, determined us to find solutions to minimize spending too much time cooking. To illustrate this idea, I found myself digging for simple, but nutritious recipes for my family that includes a four-year old son. I realized that making a soup from scratch it’s not so difficult. For example, to minimize the general cooking time, I freeze two or three portions for latter. I also boil fresh pasta for every meal, so the soup will taste really good. I also use to make many salads, which are easer, tasteful, and nutritious foods for my family. Making a salad is also a fun way to involve my son and to spend quality time with him.
Managing time when raising a young child and studying might be challenging sometimes. As a result, I take advantage of frozen vegetables, some frozen foods, some simple canned vegetables or fruits and of course the microwave and the grill. There is plenty of discussion about the nutritious aspects of frozen meals; they are more processed and not such nutritious like fresh food. However, simple frozen vegetables are quality food as they get frozen before getting old. I mean that they freeze very fresh vegetables, sometimes fresher than we find in the grocery store. In addition, frozen food cooks very quickly.
In summary, using technology and frozen meals can save a family’s dinner, when nothing else is available! Also, spending less time in the kitchen, let us get involved in other activities, including spending more time with our family members or going for a walk. I enjoy the benefit of kitchen ads and everything that can make our lives easier.
