How Does One Eat? The Start of Meal Plan Mondays
Honestly, I have no idea.
I have this problem where I don’t eat. It’s not so much that I don’t want to, it’s more that I have trouble coming up with ideas. I’ll open the fridge, maybe pick out one or two things that I could cook for myself, but the options are never exciting enough to actually motivate me to do anything but stare at the cupboard shelves. Pair that with the fact that I never get as hungry or hangry as most people seem to, and it becomes a bad mix. Not so great when I’m a human person who needs sustenance.
Yes, I did only get that word from Thor, thank you very much.
This is a problem I want to tackle, so I decided to start with my two biggest struggles: motivation and ideas. Also, as I’ve mentioned above, boredom. If I’m not excited enough to eat something, I just won’t.
So far, my plan is to come up with a list of meals I can make the next week, and make sure I have enough ingredients in the house in order to make them. Criteria for the recipes include:
- Being interesting and tasty enough
- Being easy to make
- Not very expensive
- Uses up ingredients already in the house
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be posting my meal plans and ideas, and how some of my favourite recipes turned out. If you have any recipe ideas, suggestions, or ideas for me, let me know! We can learn how to cook easy, healthy, and cheap meals together.
