So I have decided in the last month or so to change my eating habits just a bit - ok alot. I am now eating fruit as snacks as breakfast and some type of vegetable with lunch and dinner. This seems obvious to most to do so but not me - I never liked most fruit or veg. I am older now and realise I need these nutritious things in my daily diet.
So I am telling Prince Charming about meal planning and explaining this new recipe which is part of my eating plan and it is so yummy and our conversation goes like this.
Me: oh honey I went shopping and got this steak and marinating it and yummmm. Best part it is on my new eating plan
PC: Do I have to be on this diet too?
Me: It's not a diet. You can have rice, potatoes, meat and chips BUT you always have veg or fruit
PC: So I have to eat this way?
Me: Yes darling and we get to try a bunch of new recipes
PC: Well you have that passion for cooking and love trying new cooking adventures
Me: Passion? haha it's not a passion it's a necessity. Are you going to cook?
PC: Haha I cook anything right out of the freezer and that's cooking!
Me: That's reheating and that's why I do the cooking since frozen food and canned beans are not the healthiest of meals haha
PC: Fair enough you keep your passion and I will keep eating it
Me: It's not a passion and now I will be teaching you to follow basic recipes because I know you can do it ;-)
PC: but you are so good at it I don't want to interrupt you and your cooking (sarcastically)
Me: Nice try mister - game on
Amazing how Prince Charming made it thru years without me and is still fit. Now its my turn to get fit since we can't afford a chef to cook every night it will be me and in turn Prince Charming learning to cook. Hey we take turns and I got him cooking enchiladas from beginning to end and it was good! It takes baby steps.
