Food preparation — How to do it

No-one these days wants to spend hours slaving over a hot stove. But we do have to eat, and commercially-made, packaged meals are a nutritional nightmare. So, you have a choice: make your own meals or live an unhealthy life. It's up to you.

But, I hear you say, I don't know how to cook. Don't worry; it doesn't have to be a problem.

Preparing good, wholesome meals really need not be time consuming or difficult. While some of the more elaborate recipes are for the more adventurous, most are simple and quick to produce. As this way of eating is simply a matter of reducing the carbohydrate content of meals, you do not really need special menus. But a few examples of daily menus are given below in which the carbohydrate content has been calculated to give some idea of minimum daily amounts.

Margarine is not recommended. In the menus and recipes which follow, however, margarine may be substituted for butter if you wish. Do not use low-fat spreads.

Drinks with each meal: water, or coffee, tea or cocoa with milk — or preferably cream — as desired, sweetened with artificial sweetener if necessary, but it's better to cut down on this until you no longer need it.
