I am a huge believer in eating and cooking homemade food. I usually make most of everything from scratch because I know what is being put into it and where it's coming from. It's also nice because when I do go out to eat, I enjoy it so much more.
We eat homemade from scratch. My husband will not eat prepackaged food except for the very occassional Hamburger Helper which reminds him of his childhood. We are southern, so we are used to cooking from scratch on a regular basis. We do like to eat out way too much and are trying to curb that currently. We also garden throughout the entire year, so that helps in cooking fresh food as well.
Carrots, broccoli,cauliflower, okra and squash..my favorites...with perhaps green jalopena sauce..as it has zing and is not too hot..and sometimes I make a yogurt lemon sauce...usually I steam my veggies...but I also eat them raw..another veg I enjoy is cabbage soup , with a tomato base...I have recently made a pasta and mixed in the steamed veggies with diced tomatoes and mashed Avacodo, little sea salt and fresh ground pepper..I also use spices like Tumeric/Cinnamon/Garlic/ Sage and Ginger...speaking of which a Ginger Tea goes well with all these dishes...my mouth is watering already, so I better get off to bed..too late to snack now...good question, look forward to reading some other writes..maybe aome good veggie receipes.....
I eat and cook chicken dishes very often during the week. As it works for me, I perfer homemade meals as I m a tight ass just add veggies, sauce, rice or a healthy salad and still leftovers for lunches.
Nice. I worked in a hospital/old folks home where many of the residents were Japanese, and they were always eating rice as well. Interestingly, that wing of patients was much healthier than their cheeseburger friends in other parts of the home!
i just recently found out that i have Celiac. Since then, my diet is mostly consisting of tossed salads, rice, and raw carrots (for my eyes). i don't like ready-made foods. I have always liked to know what is in my foods that i feed my family so i make my own from scratch. it's healthier and tastes much better.
My best friend's kids have Celiac, and I know she prefers to make everything at home as well - even though gluten free products are starting to become quite popular. I even saw it offered with my pizza order the other day.
I'm not a brilliant cook, rather I'm just learning the ropes. Hopefully, I'll cook something palatable in the near future. Anyway, I often enjoy a different cuisine in a reputable restaurant. If asked to choose between...
