Why I hate set meal plans *rant*
Wednesday, April 25, 2012
I have a real problem. I have the meal planner thing turned on on this site and another site I'm on. Now I wouldn't say that I'm a fussy eater but most of the meals they suggest are unappealing to me or have 2 or more main ingredients which I don't like.
I love to cook and bake my own foods as I find it's a lot more healthier than anything you buy frozen. I don't have a microwave as I don't have a need for one. But I am finding it hard to find set meals which are healthy for me to make which don't cost an arm and leg to buy the ingredients for.
If I did make what the set meal planner says I would have to substitute a few items of food so that I will enjoy eating it, as a result I would not be making the meal it states although some look lovely (I have seen pictures of the end dish) but it's just not for me.
on the other hand, my husband is a fussy eater and I would have to make something else for him to eat so I don't really know what to do. At the moment all i am making for myself is toast, cottage pies, cheese pastry wrap and chicken nuggets/dippers, soup as thats all we can afford to make at the moment which I like. Where as my husband loves chicken/tuna pasta with mayo and cheese. He is mainly eating just that most days which I couldn't do but that is what he says he wants.
Thing I like are:
Meats (beef/pork/chicken/venison etc)
just to name a few things and my husband likes:
meats (same as me but he is fussy as to how its cooked so will only eat it if its double cooked or hes cooked it himself)
So at the moment I stuck as to what I can make us both which we will both enjoy while only making one meal between us instead of two and which is health for us.
