The cost of healthy foods has risen dramatically. Fast foods/convenience foods have dropped in price, are easier to prepare and IMHO are addictive. My teen son is doing this 4 week weight lifters diet to trim up his body. The foods on this diet are expensive. I told him I would do this diet with him too and just after a few days I crave some junk food. What do they put in that stuff to make it so addictive??

GMO's and there's wheat and high fructose corn syrup in everything. That stuff is like crack. Additionally, when you microwave something about 90% of the nutrients are removed.
It's like eating Styrofoam peanuts.
Organic foods have become an elite only thing. It's very sad people can no longer afford to eat right.

Here is a link to the diet I made reference to in the first post.
The cost for these food items is at least twice as much as convenience foods if not more.
Those pine nuts are expensive!!

It doesn't have to be expensive to eat a healthy diet, but you have to be prepared to cook from scratch. You can replace pine nuts with some other cheaper nuts. Red lentils are cheap as dirt and insanely high in protein.

Yes, microwaving food in beyond harmful and GMO's are toxic foods. That high fructose corn syrup they add to everything is like heroin so once you've tasted it you're hooked. Trying to get off that stuff is hard. I feel like I need a fix......... : ( I do eat fairly healthy on a regular basis but I also have been hooked on the "poison".

I am cooking from scratch and I know that it's much healthier but there are plenty of times I miss using the microwave. I need to find some happy medium so I don't resort to a quick and easy junk food lifestyle. I've started with the making food in advance and freezing but when it's time to reheat I am tempted to use the microwave and not the oven................ Will I every concur the high fructose corn syrup monster??

I just ordered Beyond Tangy Tangerine 2.0

The minimum supplement required, Tangy Tangerine 2.0 covers almost all nutritional deficiencies. With the GMO foods and peoples farming habits, has depleted our Vitamins & Mineral intake.

I'm going to try it, I read allot reviews on it, and people are losing weight, because their food intake has been reduced, When our body's get the nutrients it needs, one does not need to eat so much.

I cook a lot of indian curries and brown rice is dreadful with them, so i use basmati rice cooked in the rice cooker and its great every time.. With brown rice, the rice cooker never cooks it well, i just hard boil it for half an hour, set the timer, i never go over cause i want it to have a little bit of crunch, and its perfect every time.. Boxing Day night i cooked a stir fry with tempeh and brown rice for my veggie brother and his wife and they couldn't believe it was brown rice, and they hate tempeh, but when you mix it with a peanut sauce its really nice.. Burp.. Yo..

We don't have a micro, but I don't mind. I like making toast in the oven because I can put butter on them before I put them in the oven. Sinful fatman.gif


I love cooking though and don't mind getting it on in the kitchen, but I'm not always inspired so it's nice to have something quick and dirty to whip out. That's when it's extra awesome to have a stack of buckwheat wraps in the fridge that goes in the dry cast iron skillet, top it with plenty of cheese and maybe slice up that cold leftover chicken breast in the fridge. Heat it till it's stiff enough that you can lift it out with a spatula and everything stays on it.

Add some awesome sauce, I make mine with homemade mayo, kefir, chipotle, smoked paprika, garlic and onion powder. Chopped fresh paprika, onions, pickled garlic, lettuce and more sauce.

That's some excellent hangover street food experience in your own kitchen. omg
