Hiker Chick Posted January 19, 2013 Share Posted January 19, 2013 So, here I am, trying to change my life, as I have been suffering from debilitating, un-diagnosed pain for over a year now. I am only on day 5, and to be honest, I have been rather pleasant to my family (Hubby and 4 kids). I have experimented with a few recipes and it is very, VERY hard living in this house cooking for my family, making their lunches, buying and fixing all the food I can't have but would LOVE to. So, my husband has a huge, fully stocked kitchen to eat anything he darn well pleases. He is a carb-a-holic, and so are my kids. There are chips, crackers, cereal, bagels, tortillas, pasta galore stuffed into our pantry. Our fridge is packed with milk, cheese, hummus, etc that I have to dig through to get to my food. There are a few tupperware containers in the fridge that are "MY" food. I am still learning on what/how to eat, what to cook, how to cook it. If I find something that I like, I make extra to store so I can be prepared when hunger hits me fast and furious, or when I am so busy taking care of and cooking for the 5 other people in this house that I don't have a chance to cook for myself. So, this afternoon.... My husband goes into the fridge and opens one of my containers of food and starts to eat my salmon cakes. Mind you, it is labeled with MOM on it, to make sure no one eats it by mistake. I tell him to stop eating my food and he gets all pissy with me! He wants to know why I am not cooking all of these things for him too. He has no interest in giving up carbs and even though he is very supportive of me eating this way, I highly doubt he would change his way of eating. I tried to explain to him that I am only 5 days into this and I am trying some recipes to see how I even like them and I cook extra for me, to have on hand for another meal. I tried to let him know that I am having a rough time fixing all these other foods for him and the kids and I need my foods to fall back on. I told him "Fine, if you want to eat the way I'm eating, I'll clear all the crap out of the pantry and the fridge and you all can eat everything that I am eating, and if you don't like it, tough." Fell on deaf ears. He's mad at me and I retreated downstairs with the baby to type this out. :angry: :angry: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
