I have been eating one meal a day for 40 years. It saves me a number of hours a day that it will take to purchase, put together, eat and clear up after the meals. I am not lacking out on anything in any respect. I am not keen on things that I actually have to do.

We disagree to some extent as to why it is occurring – may very well be genetically programmed (although our parents weren’t genetically programmed to be obese!)

Onion, if used can both be boiled with the potatoes or added raw when the potatoes and different vegetables are mashed. Want a cheese substitute that really melts? Check out the Dairy-Free Cheese Sauce recipe or the Creamy, Mild Cheese Sauce that is not actually cheese, both (but tastes prefer it).

Thanks NY Lady and Em. I do assume quick meals is one thing we grow out of – by hook or by crook:-). I nonetheless do it, however so much less usually than when my son was little. Like your children, NYL, he is seen FFN and cares about his body now. Or I assume, at this moment, the possible connection between ffs and zits;-).
