At first I wondered if I was getting sick of the healthy eating but that’s not it…well, except for the mixed green salad. After three weeks, that is gagging me out because we have it almost every day. I know that some of the food products will be a little more expensive but nothing crazy. There may be a few things I will have to search to find in Iowa or order online but that doesn’t scare me too much. I think I’m just afraid that I will fall off the wagon when I get home. Four weeks without the temptation or chore of grocery shopping and having someone preparing and serving you all your meals is nice. Going back to the real world and learning how to do it all over again, but better this time, is apparently freaking out my subconscious.
I’m going to try to prepare as best I can so there are no catastrophe’s when I get back. I have a few lists from my classes here that will a good start. Unfortunately, most of the things on the list are nowhere in my cupboards at home. I don't need or want everything on the lists but will need to do some restocking and prep work to preventative a disaster. I’m very excited to make some of these recipes for my family. Like the salmon burger which may be the best thing that has graced my lips this month. So yummy! Granted, it will not be paired with the mixed green salad. Maybe Chef’s recipe for sweet potato fries or mashed potatoes. Really, anything but that damn salad.
