Healthy Eating for People Who Hate Cooking
by Thorin Klosowski
One of the
barriers for healthy eating is the time it takes to actually prepare
a healthy meal. If you already don't like the idea of cooking, making

risks that can come about from eating a frozen pizza for every single

or don't like cooking, it's the easiest, simplest way to ensure

stand around for a few seconds while it blends, and then you end
