Battling No Food

Recommended Posts

Well, I was going to say something (I've been gone all day and just saw that UC has returned to read all our posts)..but I am too late because you guys have said it all. I'll just say "what they just said".

Kiddo, GO SHOPPING and stop glutening yourself. :) Your attitude about this is all wrong.

It's not the worst thing on the planet to be a celiac.

Not by a long shot.

Guys who have a full fridge and a full bar and know how to cook are a helluva lot sexier than guys who do not.

Trust us women on this one.

Amen to that!

My next decision would be to make a resolution to plan more.

 

You can freeze cooked rice in Sandwich bags and have cans of black or red beans in the pantry.  If you make gluten-free pasta, it's just as easy to make a whole bag of it as it is to make a small portion, then freeze single portion sizes.  Same with soups or chili or practically anything.  

 

Then you have to ask yourself a day or 2 in advance what you are going to eat the next couple of days, and move stuff from the freezer to the refrigerator.  

 

The staples I always keep are cheese, milk, tomato sauce, salsa, rice cakes,  corn or rice chips, peanut butter, eggs, various canned beans, frozen and canned fish,  romaine lettuce and root vegetables.

 

Even if you don't feel inspired to make something delicious, you can have something in your refrigerator or pantry to eat safely and avoid hunger pains.

 

Good luck, wish you well.

There is always something around now, it may not be what I want, but there is something.  Very few offensive foods left and I need to clean out the pantry again and remove whatever is still there.  I left some things for kids, but kids should not have it either.  I have found that sometimes when I am hungry, just something to nibble on, and then cup of tea, is all I really needed.

And my husband has also made bread for us when I was so ill I could barely walk or think.

 

That's not molly-coddling, that's compassion. 

 

And anyway, the snarky comment  that was made is irrelevant to the discussion which, in my opinion, has been derailed.

 

Karen has posted a thread to help people "stock up" on emergency food.Let's channel this into a more positive discussion, shall we?

Mine too, but my kids always eat the emergency food.  So, I shop twice a week and keep fresh things in the frige.  There always smoothie ingredients and that will really energize you.  Toast, almond butter, jam and green tea, I am ready to go again, and that is a FAST snack.

Unhappy thanks for the reply, I think, (correct me if I am wrong) I understand  better now what you are saying. 

(I'm not contradicting what anyone else here is saying btw)

We sometimes forget social pressures people put on each other. In this case I am familiar with the "un-coolness" of perceived domesticity in a group of single men.

Unhappy, I'm going to ask you to consider your moniker. You named yourself didn't you? However cool it may be to maintain your way of life, it's not bringing you what you are looking for, right?

Consider this: We all know of people who are trendsetters, strong and proud, who are considered ultimately cool because they don't care what anyone thinks. Here is your chance to stand out from the crowd. 

You know what is sexy? The confidence that comes from contentment. Be your own person, set your own stage and if anyone mocks your choices, look straight through them like the glassy surface they are. There is reason for hearing someone attractive described as having "always taken good care of them-self". Holding yourself in high esteem indicates to others a reason to find you worthy of their esteem. 

Elevate your position in the world by taking good care of yourself. Your individuality is ultimately the coolest.
