I suppose the thing to do in, or before the new year is to make resolutions with the hopes of becoming a better person. Spiritually, physically, mentally, diabetically, whateverly. The biggest problem with the physically (or diabetically) is that this stuff isn’t easy. It’s not that I want to go to Burger King every night, but properly preparing a healthy meal takes time. And more often than not, I don’t have the time or the energy to do things the right way.
Roasting potatoes takes 30-40 minutes in the oven.
Ham takes 15-20 minutes per pound.
Turkey takes time.
Vegetables require cleaning and chopping, at minimum.
The problem isn’t the food itself. It’s delicious. The problem is doing things the “right way” has an unfair stigma (that I admit I’m not helping with). Everything takes time. I’m not an Iron Chef and I don’t want to be. But if I’m going to be healthier, I need to be at least a simple chef. This will be rather difficult. But I think I’m up for it.
