It got me thinking about how much processed or pre-made food I normally eat. Unless I was forced to, I doubt I could cook homemade 100% of the time. It's not that I seek out Froot Loops and frozen dinners for every meal, but I get busy and have cravings just like everyone else.
So here's my processed/pre-made food tally for Friday:
Breakfast: milk and cereal
Morning snack: KIND bar and strawberries
Lunch: vegetable soup (that I made at home, but I'll count the butter as pre-made)
Dinner: salad greens with grilling cheese, almonds, and tortilla strips
Dessert: ice cream!
Pre-made foods tally: 6 (cereal, KIND bar, butter, cheese, tortilla strips, ice cream)
Seems about right. Apart from a very simple meal like scrambled eggs with fruit, I don't think there are any dishes that I could consider 100% homemade because I rely on someone else to make part of it - the syrup, pasta, ketchup, chocolate chips, etc. And I like a shortcut now and then, so I buy frozen corn to avoid shucking it and jarred tomato sauce to save time. But I'm okay with that. I enjoy cooking, but I think it would quickly become a chore if I had to churn my own butter and make pasta by hand.
Would you enjoy making all your food from scratch? Do you think it's weird that I've never eaten cooked radishes before? :)
