Cooking for one
Sunday, May 12, 2013
I have been staying in a hotel for 3 nights before I move into my studio that I am subletting in Austin. I've had the excuse of not having a kitchen or microwave and that is why I've had to get every meal out... but now that isn't going to be true! I will have a full kitchen in my studio. I have a really hard time cooking for one. In New York, I go through phases where I will be really optimistic and cook for one just fine, but then I will easily get really sick of it because I absolutely hate eating the same things over and over again. Plus I think healthy food can be super boring and I usually don't have that much time to cook since I am in class and rehearsals all day. The last thing I really want to do is come home and cook for an hour. And in NYC, there are a lot of places that deliver right to your door. Literally anything you want...any hour of the day.. 24/7. To be honest, I think that is a huge part of why I gained weight. I had french toast delivered to my door every Sunday. I'm not going to go into what else I had delievered. Anyway, I'm a little nervous about doing this. I have this idea in my head that I will just buy a bunch of lean cuisines and have those for dinner. I really like them! I find them to be tasty and I like the convenience. I read somewhere that it's good to boost them with a glass of skim milk and a piece of fruit. So, for now that is my plan. It takes a lot of thinking out of the equation for me. Maybe I'll get more adventurous, but for now I'll see where that takes me.
Btw, if anyone has any suggestions about how they like to cook for one, PLEASE share with me!
