I cook daily, but sometimes I also eat stuff that are leftovers. Not often, though; mainly because there aren't any. I do, however, wash and cut my vegetables ahead of time for salads and the like. I have a better chance of getting all my vegetables in for the day if they are already prepared. I feel it's better to eat your veggies however you can, than to not eat them.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Don't we all. We are in the end creatures of convenience. You are right.

Its just that it the veggies give the most nutrition from being eaten directly after being prepared, even better straight from harvest, or proper heirloom varieties being stored in the Root Cellar naturally.

Back in the day I had my prep/washing station right in the garden...

I cook daily.  Suppers usually have more protein cooked at them so that I can have it for breakfast as that is always the most rushed meal and the most important to keep on track.  If I know I am not going to eat something within 24 hours...I freeze it.

Accidental chef, I am intrigued!
This may be highly off-topic, but I am quite interested about both your menues and your time planning.


Sorry this took so long!

My meal plans are pretty simple actually. Every day I have 2 eggs per meal (only source of animal protein), 1 green leafy veg, 1 string beans variety, 1 mixed salad with nuts, broccoli soup, 1 beneficial veg stir fry and 1 starchy veg. I plan my menu for the week, make a list and do my marketing once a week for the whole week. Similarly I make a list of fruits I need for the week. My husband's B, so most vegetables are common and in addition to the above I cook him a dish with beneficial vegetable, like egg plant, cauli etc., And he gets his dose of yoghurt.

As for menues, well except for the broccoli soup & mixed salad with nuts, the rest of our cooking is typical South Indian cuisine. I'm not sure how familiar you are with this sort of cuisine, I wouldn't mind chatting about it privately. Cooking takes about 45 minutes at the most. A bit of planning goes a long way...

I recall hearing that strict hindus are forbidden to eat leftovers.....
the accidental chef touched on this...


Ummm, it's not really religion oriented...it's just that Asian/SE Asian cuisine is such that it's meant to be eaten fresh, everyday. There are some dishes which are kept for 2-3 days, but they are usually cooked in earthen pots, and have lots of tamarind. Religion was always thrown into the equation to create some form of fear to make people obey, me thinks

Oh, yes, I have and I think it is the best thing to come along in ages! (although, it hasn't just "come along"...rather in ages past it was the natural way, and not so long ago either) It is beautiful!

Thank you Schluggell. I had no idea such a movement existed. It's great--

Lola, just curious-   do you shop at places like Chedraui & Soriana?  Or are there health-food places in Mexico?  "En Chedraui cuesta menos"
