I just watched a video where a woman was talking about a salad she’s been eating and said “it literally comes together in 15 minutes”

15 minutes is my MAX. I’m not making something if it takes longer than that. Honestly most days I refuse to put in 15 minutes unless it was 30 seconds of prep and putting it in the air fryer for 15 minutes. I don’t have the patience.
Nothing that they say takes 15 minutes on TV can ever be done in 15 minutes. They LIE 😒

@InfoTunaBotGod setting up the camera angle to chop those herbs probably took 15 minutes. and they put all their ingredients in cute lil bowls just to pour it in other bowls
@itsok even salt is in a different little bowl I can't with them
Well this is why we don’t like people that only eat salads and then BROADCAST THE FACT ONLINE.
Troll her 😡
@itsok I think it’s slower than an evangelical minute

Why the hell were you watching someone talk about salad. That isn`t food. 🙄
itsok · 31-35, F
@bijouxbroussard that sounds delicious!

@bijouxbroussard [quote] There are actually some of us who put things like chicken, shrimp, cheese, bacon, etc, in our salad.[/quote]

I was all in on what you were saying and then you dropped the word "salad" in there. 😐🤭
@itsok And the cool thing is that it’s relatively low-carb. It doesn’t make me spike.

It better be a meal of a salad!

well especially since it's a SALAD
That reminds me of a video of a woman describing her favorite sandwich.

Her: "It's so easy to put together!" *starts grating carrots*
Me: *laughs in chronic fatigue and muscle weakness*

And that was followed by cutting another 3 types of vegetables, adding some other ingredients and grilling it in a pan. Using a pan alone is too much because of the dishes, girl!
I wish cooking didn't take that long but I always go for easier things that take like an hour, if it exceeds the hour I say it's too advanced.
@itsok an hour with preparations, cooking time and cleaning, I usually do things at the same time like if something is simmering for 40 minutes.

@HannibalAteMeOut if something is cooking/setting and doesn’t need me there watching or stirring I can handle that if I’m not very anxious
@itsok I'm always too curious and keep an eye on it no matter how many times I've made it 😅

Sorry, I come from - to quote my mum - 'The Blue Peter School Of Cooking' (for those of you from out of town ,ie not the UK, 'Blue Peter' is a children's programme) in that I have to have everything in little bowls and all planned out....

Hell of a job.....but then...I just do the cooking! My other 'arf does the washing up!

@Teslin I love easy cleanup

Goodness me.
What a farce.
itsok · 31-35, F
@Matt85 15 minutes?! I bet you could make a salad more quickly, and you’re a bird

Eating healthier, which might take longer to prepare, might buy us back more time in lifespan, I think.
HatterM · 46-50, M
@itsok Fast food brings stuff like burgers and heavily processed to mind. Air fryers tend to be more for processed too, perhaps?
HatterM · 46-50, M
@itsok Yum 😋
Air fryer 🤔. Is that like Barbie oven for you Mellenials 😌🤭
@itsok For baking cakes 🎂 bread 🍞 🤷‍♂️.
itsok · 31-35, F
@InTheMostDelightfulWay I don’t do either of those things. I’m wondering how you read the post without picking that up.
@itsok well you never said you didn’t 🤷‍♂️. Only takes 15 minutes to make and shorter baking time in a convection oven 👍

15 minutes for a salad? I just take it out of a bag and it’s done lol
HatterM · 46-50, M
@iamonfire696 But is eating leaves even eating? Feels like chomping to me. You move your mouth about but it doesn't feel like anything reached your stomach afterwards lol!
@itsok but frying a shitton of bacon takes longer than 5 minutes, and is it even a salad without that?

iamonfire696 · 36-40, F
@HatterM if a salad is my meal it’s gotta have protein in it or it’s just a side.
