The Time and Effort Myth
Rid your brain of the myth that healthy food takes long to prepare or that it is boring and tasteless. I’m quite certain that if I went into my kitchen to prepare a cheeseburger and fries, it would take me a long time to do so. In addition, I would feel like garbage for a couple days.
