Cooking and muscles
Tom did me a huge favor and went through the Primal cookbooks and found a few recipes. Then he made up a grocery list. I am pretty sure he is an angel in disguise. Anyone who has to make up the weekly dinner menu knows what I'm talking about. ;)
So I forced myself to the grocery and now I have a fridge full of great ingredients. The only problem is I can't seem to make myself cook anything. For whatever reason, the entire right side of my body has been going into muscle spasms and hurts like heck, so the thought of standing and moving around as much as cooking requires sounds like anything but fun.
Needless to say, we've been having take out a lot. . . but Tom being as awesome as he is, has been keeping it as Primal as possible.
I have done my best to keep the kids' lunches Primal as well. The lunches are a bit easier since I don't really need to cook anything. A lot of vegetables, nut butters, fruits/nuts, and whatever leftover meat we have, and a bottle of water seems to keep the kids interested. Now that we've used the Bento boxes for lunches for a few weeks now, I can honestly say that it is more than worth the money. My kids have not been teased ONCE since they started using them. Kids are weird. I don't know why what the lunch comes in makes a difference as to what they eat, but ... whatever. I had to listen to so many sad stories about what kids were saying to my children about eating healthy stuff, it was really wearing on everybody. So I am ecstatic the my girls don't have to deal with it anymore, and would gladly pay double what I paid for the Bentos.
I'm going to the doctor, a massage therapist, and the chiropractor next week. Surely one of those things is bound to help. THEN I can finally get back to cooking.
