The idea that I am going to make four or five meals each night that are completely made up of only fresh ingredients and using no processed ingredients is ridiculous. Sometimes I think I have to do new things all or nothing. I am starting to hate cooking again. Not that I ever loved it but I am starting to lean towards severe dislike.
I am going to cut myself some slack. I have been beating myself up when I have made one of my old comfort foods, sometimes from a box. Right now I think I need to start with the concept of "buy groceries and then eat your groceries and don't go out to eat." I am going to aim for one or two recipes a week with mostly fresh ingredients and if I want to eat a frozen pizza the other nights, no guilt. Rome wasn't built in a day.
