10, 10, 10 Can you hear me now?

In: What's Cookin'?

lambToday’s lunch consisted of lamb ribs chops on a bed of mixed baby greens, mache, with red bell peppers and a little caprese salad. So delicious. All for under $10, 10 minutes, and 10 grams of animal fat. Yes, indeed, I bought the ingredients for under $10, all organic and from Whole Foods. It took me 10 minutes to prepare this meal, including making my own vinaigrette and sauteeing the lamb.

There is no excuse for not being able to eat well because of either time or money. But if $10 is too costly for a meal, substitute 6 ounces of chicken or even a can of tuna…or grow your own greens and tomatoes. And shop somewhere other than Whole Foods. The point is that the value, even on the front end, is much more than what BS is being purported by the soccer moms who don’t know how to cook, or are too lazy, and think that McDonald’s is a time saving, economical, and nutritious option if you don’t eat the bun!

However, for my family, we invest money in food rather than health insurance. It is crazy to me that people will spend $1000 per month for a family of four to have basic health coverage and yet will eat total crap, get sick, miss school, work, functions, only to complain about the crappy health coverage they have. You’ve heard it before: “you are what you eat; garbage in, garbage out; you get what you put into it”. The same applies to food and the health of your engine. Keep it clean so your motor is hummin’  a long time!
