Cooking is difficult for me. I love trying new foods and I love preparing them. I don’t love meal planning, grocery shopping, and the inevitable clean up afterwards. If I’m standing in the kitchen getting ready to make a meal and the skillet I need is dirty or the trash can is full, my brain just gives up. This is my ADHD and executive dysfunction at work.
I get it, we all get tired. We all have days where we just don’t want to adult anymore, but this is different. It’s like running into an actual brick wall and then being paralyzed, lying on the couch doom scrolling, and then despising myself for repeating this cycle over and over and over again then giving up and ordering DoorDash (which is stupid expensive with all the fees).
I’ve decided to meet myself where I’m at for a while and ordered some meals from Factor75. They’re fully prepared, heat and eat - absolutely no prep necessary. Yes, they are a little pricey at $13.49 a meal for 6 meals BUT it’s a hell of a lot less expensive than using DoorDash and a lot more nutritionally complete than fast food.
I was worried about how the food would taste, but so far have been pleasantly surprised! The mushroom, tomato, goat cheese cavatappi and shredded chicken taco bowl were drool worthy AND it required zero effort on my part - microwave and devour. Plus it was so filling (and trust I’m not one of those people who eats a Lean Cuisine or a handful of almonds and feels satiated).
Moral of the story here, sometimes we have to stop beating ourselves up for what we can’t do and just figure out how to thrive in the moment.
