Healthy homemade meals can be prepared in minutes.
Too often you think that you don’t have time for a homemade meal. But a simple meal doesn’t have to take a lot of time or be overly elaborate. In fact, simple meals not only take little time, they are both healthy and tasty. Better than anything you can afford to buy in a restaurant or fast-food joint.
Breakfast, if you have it, is almost always a quick meal anyway. A healthy breakfast can be done in less than 10 minutes.
Lunch can be prepared in about 10 minutes in the morning and taken with you, or if you’re lucky enough to be able to go home, you can prepare the same lunch when you get home and still have time to eat it. Dinner too can be put together in about 10 minutes at the end of the day and you’ll have a full, satisfying meal. Nothing fancy here, just everyday cooking.
For healthy food choices, every suggested menu item or recipe includes foods that are usually available in most supermarkets in the U.S. or local farmers’ markets. For the science of what you should eat we turn to the Perfect Health Diet.* This is not, however, in any way “authorized” by the PHD authors, who have their own recipes and recommendations.
The healthiest diet, they say, is the traditional Pacific islander diet. The Perfect Health Diet is a low carbohydrate, low protein, high fat diet. The diet emphasizes nontoxic foods, including safe starches – sweet potato, potatoes, yucca and rice – beef, lamb, fish, vegetables, coconut oil, cheese, butter, cream & eggs, along with some berries and fruit.
Those are the ingredients for the recipes you’ll find here. The menus here list full meals that can be prepared in about 10 minutes. Some may take prior preparation (like cooking up a broth on the weekend that’ll be part of the meals made during the week).
For many of the menu items turn to the recipe section to find ways of preparing traditional foods in ways that are both quick and optimized for health.
* The Perfect Health Diet is written by two scientists, Dr. Paul Jaminet and Dr. Shou-Ching Shih Jaminet. You might call it a geek’s diet book. It is written to be read by anyone, with the major points put clearly and simply for those without an alphabet of letters after their name, followed by geeky stuff that will satisfy your inner rocket scientist.
