Recently Nick and I have again come to the point where something's gotta give. I'm sick, he's sick, there's no time to take care of ourselves much less anything else. So we started thinking about what we could outsource to someone else.
After some discussion, we decided to try Lucky Palate, a vegetarian (in our case, vegan) meal delivery service. We signed up for six dinners a week for one month. This saves us not only the cooking and post-cooking clean up time, but also the effort of meal planning and a lot of grocery shopping. And by having food pre-made for us, we can be certain that it's healthy and I won't end up eating more raisin bran for dinner because I'm sick and don't want to do anything. I'm not terribly happy about it, but I think it's a good option to try right now.
I love cooking and trying out new recipes. I read cookbooks for fun. I blog about homemade vegan ice cream. But I've been too tired to cook for months. Nick's taken that over. And planning out our meals can be very difficult on a bad neuro/cognitive day. So this is a limitation I will accept for now, and we'll see what accommodation can be made. I hope the Lucky Palate meals are good; they look kind of hippie/stodgy, but that's not always a bad thing.
