Day 4...nO tImE tO cOOk?...

I woke up with more to do than hours in the day.  That's pretty normal these days.  Between 3 kids, working part time at the gym, 4 Facebook pages, 1 Facebook group, 2 blogs, 2 tee shirt shops, and lots of emails coming in every day...I'm spread pretty thin and unfortunately, I'm NOT known for my organization or time management skills.  So I rushed around and made calls and answered emails etc etc etc after I dropped the kids off at school.

It got to be later in the morning and I realized that I hadn't eaten breakfast.  I went in the kitchen thinking..."What am I going to eat?!?"  Before I knew it, I had sliced up fresh spinach leaves, cherry tomatoes, shitake mushrooms, and green onions and I was sauteeing the mixture in Ghee and sprinkling it with Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb flavoring.  The smell was incredible!  After maybe one minute, I poured in 2 beaten eggs and scrambled the mixture together.  I took a pic because it was so pretty and sent it to a few friends doing this with me.  I got a bunch of different reactions, but one struck me in particular.
A guy from the gym that I train said, "Nice!  We as a society are convinced by fast food companies and processed food companies that cooking healthy takes too long!"  I thought about that, and it's so true.  So many times, I've eaten crap or gone out because it was too late or I didn't have time to cook.  But everything I've made these past few days has been pretty quick and I did it on the fly.

We always say we don't have time for things that we don't WANT to do, but here's the honest truth.  If you have time to watch TV, Facebook, read, shop, or talk on the have time to cook!  Don't lie to yourself and cheat yourself out of a healthy life and the satusfaction that comes from taking care of your body.  MAKE TIME TO COOK HEALTHY MEALS FOR YOURSELF.  PERIOD.  You'll be surprised what you can do in a short time!
