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.
