Jeff Novick’s Fast Food: A progress report

30 Jul

As reported previously, I am trying Jeff Novick’s Fast Food plan as an exercise in healthful cooking and time management. My main stumbling block has been the plan’s reliance on tomatoes. After a very helpful email from Jeff Novick I have been experimenting with various substitutes.

I am happy to report that Pacific Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Broth is an excellent alternative.

Last night I made a dinner with kidney beans, frozen vegetables, including carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and collard greens. I cooked these in the vegetable broth and used powered curry for a spice. Served over rice it made an excellent meal, and, as promised, only took about ten minutes to prepare.

Time management with Google Calendar

15 Jul

Google Calendar is easy to use and can be accessed on any device connected to the internet, including your smartphone.  You can also share your calendar with other family members.

For me, it has been the single most effective time management tool.

In this video Catherine Hooper explains how she uses Google Calendar to organize her time.
