Gina from Running To The Kitchen said something the other day that truly resonates with me right now.
I think I’d like this whole strict paleo thing a lot more if someone could just prep all my meals for me. I feel like I’m constantly in the kitchen, constantly defrosting meat and going through protein at an alarming rate.
I am just exhausted by the constant food preparation and the huge amounts of meat.. I am also exhausted by trying to have to *decide* what to cook.
Part of this is because of the Lite N Easy – each day had a menu right down to the snacks so for two and a half months I did not have to make any food decisions.
Sometimes I like being told what to do. When it comes to food I love that because given the option between making a good choice which is difficult to cook, or making a bad choice that I can nuke in the microwave, I will choose the latter every time.
If given the choice between an apple which you have to cut up, and a packet of chips which you merely have to open and eat, I used to choose the latter.
Now I see how completely ridiculous making that bad choice that is. Cutting up an apple takes moments, and a decent knife.

I’m much more likely to eat a salad if I buy the bagged mix than if I have to go to all the extensive work and trouble of spending 10 to 15 seconds cutting up my lettuce. Crazy, isn’t it?
Absolutely. It is amazing how attuned we are to “easy” when “not easy” is not much harder. :)
