I’ve decided, after washing dishes yet again, that I’m not going to cook anymore other than soup. I hate doing dishes and while I don’t want to contribute to the massive garbage problem in the US by using paper plates, I am tempted to do so. Still, I’m tired of having to clean the kitchen – tired of dirty dishes, tired of the stove top getting drops on it, tired of it all so this is it, I’m done.
I need to clean out my refrigerator too and throw things away – clean it out and leave it nearly empty. Going to get more fruits and veggies I can eat raw or in the juicer. I don’t eat leftovers and just cleaned out my freezer which was full of leftovers I will never eat. I waste food like you wouldn’t believe so if I stop cooking, that will cease as well. I feel bad throwing out leftovers but I really won’t eat them.
Yes, this may mean eating out more – I will choose healthier places to do that – but I won’t be spending $200+ in groceries so that should absorb some of the extra cost. Plus a lot of the places one eats out gives one way too much food so can always use it for a second lunch…yes, I know that is considered “leftovers” but it depends on the food.
I went out for breakfast this morning at Perkins. I couldn’t even eat half of the food they served me – I brought the excess home for the dogs who gobbled it up. Kinds of food I could split and eat again later are mostly salads but pasta stuff too.
Right now I am at that stage again where everything I eat makes my stomach upset. This comes around every couple of months and while I know the cause of it, I don’t want to share all that info here. Suffice it to say, when I get to this point, I have to watch what I am doing or I am miserable. I was miserable after pizza last night – I won’t be ordering that again for a very long time.
