I have decided to spin off the food section of this blog into its own entity: food.erwingerrits.com.
I am in the process of moving over the recipes I had on this blog, and am adding new ones as we make them. The theme will be Good Food Made Easy. My wife and I are trying to make healthy meals (mostly low GI) with less and less salt, fat, sugar, processed ingredients.
It will not so much be a “heath food” blog, but more a blog about how ordinary people, who may not be cooking so much due to various reasons, can pick up a spatula and create nice tasting, healthy meals from scratch in under 30 minutes. And in the process they may learn a few things about food and how ingredients work together and they can start to experiment themselves on some new recipes.
Too many times I have heard, by people that routinely eat unhealthy take out food or eat out many times a week: “I can’t cook”, or “I don’t have time to cook, I work full time, you know!”. First of all, anyone can learn how to cook, and well, let me tell you, both my wife and I work full time, and we still make a nutritious, healthy meal FROM SCRATCH nearly every weekday. AND we’re done cooking, eating and cleaning by 6 pm most nights.
Anyway, I hope that the new site will inspire people to start cooking a bit more at home rather than eating KFC or pizza several times a week.
