There’s a bad misconception about food. It’s that good food – natural, whole, unprocessed food – is not tasty. No, let me correct myself. It’s not a misconception, it’s an excuse. It’s an excuse the lazy and uncommitted use to make themselves feel better about opting for the convenient and processed stuff instead of investing time and money in nutritious food. It’s a side topic, but eating good food is not a cost but an investment in your health. Bad food is a cost because you end up paying more for doctors bills and chronic medication.
Back to topic. Good food is tasty, it’s enjoyable, and it’s anything but boring.
Our summer lifestyle challenge is underway. One of the approaches we use in the challenge is to get people constantly thinking about and sharing their lifestyle choices, such as their meals and snacks. An example of this approach is encouraging the challenge participants to post their meals to social media for bonus points (nothing like some healthy competition). And the images we’ve been seeing have been of well thought out, delicious, yet simple and easy-to-prepare meals.
Check out Amanda Cook’s post of her hubby Chris’s sirloin invention. They’re both on the challenge.
And how about Rachel Clark’s dipped hake invention?
Good food doesn’t have to take forever to prepare, but planning and preparation is essential in today’s busy times. Good food isn’t boring, if it ever got boring for you, it’s more a reflection of your boring-ness (yes that’s a word, I made it up) and lack of effort. Good food doesn’t taste bland, it tastes amazing when cooked properly using natural herbs, spices and sauces. Best of all, good food fuels your health and fitness.
If you genuinely don’t have the time to prepare food because of your lifestyle, then it’s still your responsibility to seek out any number of the ready-made food suppliers out there. Or tell the Clarks and Cooks to open up a ready-made meal service for CFJ members 😉
