Do you ever get tired of food and just eating in general? And not because you want to lose weight or save money but because absolutely NOTHING sounds good anymore? The things you used to love to eat -- chips, pizza, Jimmy John's subs, pb&j sandwiches, spaghetti -- sound awful and you'd sooner just eat nothing than eat any of those things one more time? Well, this has happened to me, and its frustrating. I know I have only myself to blame because I tend to eat the same things every day for months or even years until I can't stand the sight of them anymore. For example - almost every[work]day for the past year I have eaten a bowl of generic frosted mini wheats for breakfast, a pack of peanut butter crackers for a morning snack, and a peanut butter & honey (or jelly) sandwich, apple, and pretzels for lunch - and I can't take it anymore! So after throwing a mini-fit on Friday night about running out of ideas for meals, I sat down for several hours on Saturday and looked at cookbooks and magazines and brainstormed about new and fresh meal ideas. And thankfully, I came up with some good ideas and headed to the grocery store to stock up on all sorts of goodies. Let me tell you...it was such a relief to heat up a homemade burrito for lunch today instead of choke down another pb&j :)
Does anyone have any other suggestions for inexpensive & vegetarian dinners, lunches (that are easy to take to work preferably), and snacks to make at home?
