Too Busy To Cook: Reality or BS?

I got a kick out of reading this article.  Michael Ruhlman says the old excuse of being too busy to cook is a bunch of BS.  He states that we all have the same 24 hours in a day and that we all choose how to use those hours.  If you don’t have time to cook, he thinks it’s just not high enough on your list of priorities.

What do you think?

I for one spend multiple hours in a day helping people develop simple strategies for healthier meals, made with fewer processed ingredients.  But I don’t actually cook 5/7 days of the week!  I developed a strategy that works for me.  Cook 3 meals on Sunday that last through the work week, eat out on Saturday and cook a nice meal on Sunday.

What works for you? 

No matter how you look at it- eating fewer processed meals and incorporating better nutrition into your diet does take time, a bit of sacrifice, and some serious planning.  But I just don’t know that I can agree with Ruhlman.  For many of us, cooking on a nightly basis isn’t a matter of priorities, it’s just a matter of reality.
