I have a friend who only eats all natural food. As I watched her make this transition recently my eyes were OpENed! I wish I could sit here and type about my deep conviction about hydrogenated oils and processed sugars……but that would be a lie. I have nothing against ingredients that I can’t pronounce. I have learned something though: I have been a victim of marketing! It honestly never occurred to me that the things I buy in a bottle could be whipped up in a matter of minutes.
Up until recently I thought nothing of paying $2.50 for a loaf of whole wheat bread…..I have been making it for less than $.50/loaf! I used to spend $1.75 on a bottle of Hershey’s syrup…I can make it BETTER for $.45!! Pizza crust is nothing more than flour, water and oil….who knew?
I know that most of you are thinking that I am a hippie or something, but I have been shocked at how easy this stuff is to make. With the punching of a few keys I can find a recipe for ANYTHING. It does take a little time, but not nearly as much as I would have thought. 5 minutes for homemade cream of chicken soup and 20 for homemade hamburger buns! Seriously…..
Don’t be surprised if I decide to share some of my new-found recipes in the days to come!
