Relearning is hard, and sometimes embarrassing
Sunday, October 23, 2016
I was eating dinner last night and I realized that I really do like broccoli. On Tuesday I had a similar reaction when I was eating my salad. And a few days before that I was more interested in the salad and vegetables than I was in the spicy chicken teriyaki.
Why is it such a shock to discover that I like vegetables?
I've liked them in the past.
I think a lot of my issue with veggies is the convenience or lack thereof. To make a salad I have to expend effort cutting up vegetables and mixing the dressing. To eat chips I just open the bag. To eat broccoli I have to cut it up and microwave it. To eat a cookie I just open the box.
It's also a speed thing. When I'm hungry, I am hungry NOW, not in 5 minutes when the broccoli is done. That chip bag is fast too.
Honestly, I think the key for me is to find a way to fall in love with cooking. If I look forward to the preparation of the food then I'll be more open to doing it and thus not as concerned with how "hard" it is to do it. And if I'm looking forward to the task of cooking, the time it takes won't bother me either.
So............ how do you fall in love with cooking? (Lol, instead of "cooking" I almost wrote "cookie" which I already know how to fall in love with...)
