This week I have had a touch of gastro. It’s never pleasant, but neither is it the worst case I’ve seen (or experienced). The thing that has got me is the absolute lack of desire to look at food, think about food, plan meals etc. It’s so hard to care about food when you’re sick, and this coupled with the guilt that I should care about food for Little Fearse all the time has made me feel quite glum.
In honesty, for weeks now I’ve felt really blah about food. I work really hard to provide Little Fearse with balanced meals at all the right times through out the day. I love thinking up new awesome ideas for her day care lunches. I peruse recipes like they’re going out of style (many of them probably are) and ear mark pages, fill books with tabs, write lists for shopping and plans for menus. I’m just not following through at the moment.
What do you do when the food doldrums kick in? Do you go into ultra organised mode? Do you buy more convenience food? What are your easy go-to meals? I’d love some advice that could help drag me out of this cooking rut.
