I have always enjoyed cooking, even after a busy day, as it provides an opportunity to unwind. But since going on SLD, I find that I don't plan ahead as well. I suppose that since I'm not thinking about food as much, I'm not thinking ahead to the next meal, and so when it is time to eat I find myself rummaging through the fridge and cabinets, trying to decide what sounds good - and doing a fair amount of nibbling in the process. My grocery shopping has become more willy-nilly as well, rather than focused toward specific recipes. My husband is not on SLD and enjoys my cooking, so I have more or less stayed with our 3-meal-per-day regimen, and I simply eat less than I did before.
Has anyone else had this experience? How do you decide what to cook when nothing sounds good? Do you have favorites/standbys you come back to over and over?
