I would've given it a thumbs up had it not been for the mention of Sunday lessons and Sunday school! Seriously, who has time to do nothing but soak beans, bake bread, and whip up gallons of milk & iced tea? It's much simpler and easier to create healthy meals in a slow cooker. I've even used mine to cook lasagna! It does have a lot of good ideas but it's under the premise that someone is home all day and has nothing better to do than prepare meals.
