RandiW Posted January 13, 2017 Share Posted January 13, 2017 Typically my partner and I split the cooking responsibilities. Usually he does 2 nights a week, I do 2, leftovers for 1 or 2 and out for the other. I cooked everything basically for the first 8 days and then had a meltdown. We sat down together and planned a list of things he could cook for me that would help lighten the load but still be whole30 compliant. Great, I felt so much better. But NOW, we're having a problem every time I'm cooking. His problem is that he perceives a lot of the things I'm making to be "heavy," and my problem is I have no idea what to make that he also wants to eat and he's not being very helpful in suggestions. We're both bad at decision making and I get that if he's not cooking he doesn't want to decide what I should make. I think we both feel like the other is being difficult right now. I sorta cannot believe the unanticipated issues me doing this without him has brought up. My body doesn't feel like meat is too heavy right now because of the fat adjusting, but he's still subsiding on carbs and sugar and feel like additional calories are too heavy. I think it's putting us both on edge. We can definitely just eat different things some nights, but the whole point of the way we split up cooking is so the other person doesn't have to been stressed about cooking almost every night during the week. I'd be happy to make fish often, but I think he's not psyched about salmon 3 nights a week either! What are some "lighter meals" you've made with W30?
