Basic Bowls

I’m not exaggerating when I say I don’t know how to cook. My mom has been making delicious meals since before I can remember (she’s an angel), and so I’ve never really been needed in the kitchen. But now that I’m soon headed off to college, I want to learn how to make my own healthy and tasty meals.

Since I need to start somewhere, I started from the very beginning. The following three meals are extremely easy to prepare because just in the same way you don’t start solving complicated mathematic problems before you learn to multiply and divide, you don’t start making intricate meals before you learn about different tastes and techniques. So without further ado, here are the three meals I prepared today.
