When do we stop thinking about food ALL the time?


Recommended Posts

Think of it like starting a new job. When you first start all the stuff is new and you have alot to learn, so you spend ALOT of time getting up to speed. This dietary change is like that. Once you get into a place where you have some "go to" recipes things will start easing up. Food obession will NOT be a permanent part of any healthy diet, but like Glenn said YOU get better and find a new balance. It took YEARS to become an expert at abusing your body! Its going to take a little time learning how to feed it and treat it right. Trust me when I say I am right there with you and understand completely!

Ah yes - the prep! (and the associated dirty dishes!)  Just remember that it is acceptable to use pre-prepped veg :) I am happy to use frozen veg without any additives, and particularly frozen veg mixes such as the stir-fries :) obviously if you are trying to eat all organic then this is not so much of an option.  Also, remember to batch cook - then you can freeze or refrigerate extra portions to save having to cook at every meal time :)

 

What I wouldn't give for a dishwasher!!!!  :D

Thank you everyone. I can see that I am already getting a little better at prepping and I am also enjoying dishwashing time as "downtime" or mindfulness and meditation. I am trying to stay present with the whole process and that helps. I will say this, my kitchen is ALWAYS clean because I'm always cleaning!
