I like food. I really enjoy interesting veggie dishes, complicated stews, curries, soups, etc. But fixing these can take a LOT of energy, and I have yet to figure out where to put frozen containers in my little side by side freezer (where I also keep frozen veg, butter, bread, and meats bought on sale, not to mention my daughter's ice cream and my frozen fruit bars!).
I really don't have any interest in bothering to eat plain chicken breasts with salsa, or a hunk o steak. I'll eat it if I'm hungry enough, but not for pleasure.
So I go through phases where I cook alot, more than I need for the day, of food I enjoy. And then eat it for every dinner for a week, while I also cook plain, boring meat and pasta for hubby and kids.
But I am definitely hitting a brick wall. Having smoothies for meals, or hummus and carrots... or not bothering to eat a meal at all, but just making sure the kids are fed (hubby often fends for himself).
