What’s the first thing the Trifecta asks me when we’re all together? “Aunt Orly, what are we cooking today?” To which I now reply,” That depends on who is doing the DISHES.”
A reader asked a very, very, very good question today. How does a working Mom cook with whole foods? It takes forever. Yep. I was a working Mom for 3 years, and while I wasn’t a whole foods cook then, I often wonder how I would have swung it. The time investment is real, and I’m won’t brush it off or make it seem easy. Or possible. Hell, I know how long I spend in the kitchen and I sure as heck know what I’m spending at the grocery. So here’s the thing: I can’t stop thinking about this question, which means it’s moved into the churning inner-workings of my subconscious. Which means when I sleep on it long enough, answers will (hopefully) come. Not all the answers. Not magical answers. But ideas. Ideas we can use. Wisdom will not come quickly, but will probably come suddenly.
In the meantime, I welcome your thoughts on this topic: How do Working Moms and/or Single Moms incorporate Whole Foods Cooking into their family menu considering the workload and time constraints involved? Let’s take this journey together.
