We knew it would happen… We prepared and researched to avoid this. And still it happened.
We ordered pizza, veggie and cheese at least, because the thought of another fish or plant based dinner made me want nothing for dinner instead. I was exhausted and pining for comfort food and nothing we had on hand was going to do it. When the Husband asked me what I wanted, I flopped onto the couch and declared that cereal was going to be my dinner. Looking back at it, I realize that I was acting like a toddler and probably should have put myself to bed right away. As he didn’t want cereal for dinner he found a coupon for pizza and dinner was delivered! As I wasn’t in the mood for food, I waited but I eventually caved and had a piece.
We had originally set up this plan so that we would not be bored with our food choices and now we find ourselves, well, bored. Thankfully, we have a couple of cheat nights built in (like Valentine’s Day) and we have homemade sushi on the menu. With all of the great recipes we dug out, we thought we had this in the bag but it hasn’t been so easy. Most nights, I am excited to try something new but when I just want junk, fish isn’t going to cut it.
For those of you who choose to limit your diet, how do you keep things exciting?
Any exciting plans for Valentine’s Day?
