My secret to finding time to cook real food

I try to make as much food as I can from scratch. I am getting there in my journey to be a truly healthy eater. That means not just thinking I am eating healthy, it means actually eating real food and not a bunch of junk. Junk as in preservatives, words I can't pronounce, anything processed and chemicals.

Somethings I make are quite time consuming. Especially with two toddlers that need just about all of my attention all of the time.

My secret is doubling, tripling and quadrupling recipes. This saves lots of time and lots of dish washing. I only have to get my ingredients out once and put them away once.
My loaves of bread are not all the same size. I am not perfect and I don't have time to be, so please don't judge :)

Yay! One to eat and three to freeze for the next couple of weeks. Now I wont have to bake bread for a while.

The bread recipe I used in the pictures is from Heavenly Homemakers. Lately, I have been only using sourdough and I have been looking for the perfect recipe that everyone in my family enjoys.

Tripling recipes is one of my favorites -- especially when your mother goes through your zucchini bread so quickly. :) Haha, I would be baking 24/7 if I didn't make more than one batch at a time.
