I used to hate to cook, too. My “cooking” pretty much consisted of boxed mac and cheese, Hamburger Helper, and every once in a while, I’d try chili or soup. Enter Doctors Wellness Center and my nutritionist, Traci, as well as a new way of life.
The early days were especially tough. My pantry was bare – I was at the grocery store four or five times a week. My kitchen lacked even the most basic tools, no good pots, decent knives, handy little gadgets. It seems like every week I was making another major purchase for the kitchen. In addition to having all of that stacked against me, I just barely knew how to boil water, much less chop, cut, dice and puree.
Things are much better now; it’s amazing how far I’ve come. And as I’ve acquired the right tools, learned by doing and gotten some kitchen experience under my belt, I find that I don’t hate to cook anymore. (I don’t always have enough time to cook as much as I need to, but that’s another issue I’m working on!)
