No motivation for meal preparation

  Do you guys ever get in a food rut?  Because I sure as hell am in one right now.  I'm just NOT motivated to cook.  I don't even want to think of what I'll have for dinner until like a half hour before the hunger monster takes over.

  Before this crazy ride I had no problem just cooking some pasta or rice or some form of an all-carb dinner.  It was quick, easy, and satisfying enough.  But now I'm trying to look at having more 'balanced' meals which for me means less carbs.
  And from my previous posts you know that I love eating my 2 pieces of whole wheat toast with cream cheese in the morning.  And most days I have some sort of a sandwich for lunch.  So for dinner, I've been trying to ease up on the carbs.

  Because of my lack of motivation to cook, I tried to come up with a fun quick meal tonight.  However, my meal = FAIL.

  I boiled chicken with onions, melted some American cheese on top and dipped in BBQ sauce.  And I ate it with a side salad.  It was so bla that I only ate 2 of the chickens and the salad.

  And because of my failure to plan my meals, I consumed a very small amount of calories today.  Since I haven't done a food log lately, I'll do one for today:

-2 slices of 100% whole wheat toast with 1/3 fat Philly cream cheese and tea
(~300 cal)

-14 raw almonds, handful of carrots, 1/2 small turkey sandwich (wheat bread, turkey deli meat, tomato, lettuce)
(~280 cal)

-2 small chicken breast strips with 2% american cheese, side salad (lettuce, tomato, carrots, garbanzo beans, raspberry vinaigrette dressing)
(~200 cal)

-Lavashak  (basically a Persian snack that is pressed out dried berries)
(~50 cal)

Grand Total: 830 cal

  I wish I had a personal chef so that I wouldn't have to eat boring food.  Ha!  Right.

  2. Hi Anoosheh jaan,
    I had no idea you went to MSU! I don't think we've met before at the Persian functions. Have we?

    I did use to run outside quite a bit. However now I do my workouts at the gym. I would love to run with you sometime if my schedule allows. Also, I'm getting married and moving to Kalamazoo in the next few months, so I'm not sure how often I will be here.

    How did you find my blog?

  4. Oh my gosh! Yes I do! I know Shadi and Shervin Espahani. She is my parent's best friend's daughter. Is that who you are related to?

    Also, good luck with your running training! That is so exciting =)

  6. I never get in a "food rut" because I have a wife that prevents me from having to do such.
