Make Good Choices and Keep Things Simple

Make Good Choices and Keep Things Simple

Making a new dish for the first time almost always takes longer than you expect. Give yourself an extra 15 minutes of cooking and prep time to account for this, but ensure that the other dishes you’re preparing are things you’re familiar with.

Know what you’re going to make ahead of time and stick to it. For example, on a weeknight, you could stick to a protein, cooked veg or starch, and something made of raw plant parts.

Make a Timeline

Decide on when dinner is going to be served, then work backwards from there. Write down what you’re making, with recipe times and cooking temperatures beside each item.

For example:

  • Pan-fried chicken breasts—30 minutes, stove top
  • Roasted carrots—45 minutes, including washing/peeling/chopping
  • Salad with blue cheese and red onion—10 minutes
  • Bacon—About 7 minutes

Given these prep times, you will need an hour, considering that the chicken and carrots can cook at the same time.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
