I Love Food

It's no secret that I have a fond place in my heart for food. I get giddy about going out to eat and look forward to my meals everyday.

But I recently realized something that kind of broke my heart.

I don't like to cook.

I love to bake but cooking dinner each day is just not appealing at all. Luckily, my hubby really enjoys cooking and is good at it so on days where I am not doing a crock pot meal, he will usually come home and make dinner. It's terrible, right?!

And it's a strange relationship I have because I love to eat it the food but preparing it is such a buzz kill.

It's odd.

Anyway. With it being hot out (which makes me want to cook all the less), I have been really thinking about what I eat each day because McDonalds for lunch everyday is really not gonna work. (Jokes)

And let's talk about the fact that I am not a Salad person. You will never see me order a salad at a restaurant (unless we're at Cafe Rio and it's got meat, beans, rice, a massive tortilla and a wild amount of dressing). It just seems like such a shame to waste a meal on a salad. BUT, as I grow up, I realize that Salads are in fact a healthier choice than Steak and French Fries (but I will always love you steak!).

So, blah blah blah, here is some food that looks good on Pinterest but that is also, fairly, somewhat, kinda, healthy.

Now, is there anyone out there that has a story about how they disliked cooking but learned to like it? I really want to love cooking but am failing so far.

Happy Wednesday!

We have a few salad recipes that serve as dinner, but I always have to make sure to load them up on the protein to keep Ty's tummy satisfied.
