I love to eat. Anyone who knows me knows this to be the most true thing I have ever admitted.
I have problems when it comes to eating though and I am not exactly sure where they stem from.
I was always a little bit of a bigger kid so my parents tried(unsuccessfully) to limit my food intake. My parents are healthy people. My mom, at almost 64, walks all the time. My dad is actually too thin. They could both hide behind me and not be seen.
I am just bigger. Think a football offensive lineman.
Anyway, I enjoy food but here is the thing. I really hate the preparing of said food.
As I have posted before, I work 12 hour rotating shifts. The last thing I want to be doing is making meals. But I know it has to be done. I need healthy(paleo/primal) and simple recipes.
Cripes when I go to the grocery store I wander like Lindsay Lohan in search of her next bottle of Jack!
I actually look at what other people have in their cart and to be honest I do not see much that is very appealing.
And I end up with the same crap in my cart. I spend money on complete junk that is gone in a few days and then I am back repeating the same scenario.
I do have a slow cooker which should make things easy but I even struggle with that for crying out loud.
So does anyone out there have any suggestions?
I have searched “menu planning”, “meal planning” etc, but I have yet to find anything that would seem to work for me. I know I cannot be the only person in this predicament. What have others come across for simple recipes that actually are simple?
I want real food. Nothing processed in a box or a can if it can be helped. I do not want cereal bars which are just junk wrapped up in “healthy” packaging.
I am going grocery shopping tomorrow I think and I need some suggestion.
If you could see my refrigerator right now you would cringe. There is an apple and a few lemons and a 4 liter jug of water. Ha! So as you can tell I need help.
PLEASE comment or send me to a site that may help me.
