These are the same people who are willing to wait eight cars deep in a fast food drive-thru for a grease-stained bag of below-average burgers.
Just like everyone has time to work out, everyone has time to cook their own meals. You just have to push yourself past the “don’t,” “won’t,” and “can’t." Do so, and you’ll begin eating better food that’s also better for you.
If you want to challenge me on this whole speed thing, I’ll set a timer.
You pick your favorite hamburger bin and hit it on the drive home from work. I’ll pick this recipe for Four-Chile Pork Chops with Grilled Pineapple from my new cookbook, A Man, A Pan, A Plan.
By the time I prep and cook this meal, maybe you’ll have a one-minute edge on me as you finish stuffing down your order in the parking lot (talk about social!). But I’ll have you beat every time in one key factor: satisfaction.
What you think you save in time you’ll never be able to recoup in sheer flavor. The chili powder, chipotle, ancho, and cayenne combine into firestorm of heat, tempered only by the enhanced sweetness of fresh pineapple rings grilled in pork juices. With a little mint and sea salt on top, it’s hearty and light all at once.
Cook it. Eat it. Grunt. Get on with the rest of your day.
