I was going on a big complex rant about my home life but Iíll just simplify it. For various reasons I still live with my mother. Moving out isnít an option and I pay board. We have the following agreements regarding mealsÖ
-she will prepare dinners and I fend for myself at other times. This is more convenient for both of us
-If for some she canít prepare dinner or isnít home, she let me know in advance and I am fully capable of preparing my own.
-We are both aiming to lose weight so healthy is the way to go
This mostly works for both of us but more and more itís getting annoying. Cases where she wonít let me know until the last minute she isnít around or preparing unhealthy meals. It sort of got to the tipping point tonight when she replied to my message querying if she was going to be around, saying she would be home at 8pm (late) and pick up something healthy from the shop on the way as ďI needed my vegetablesĒ. I had my 2.5 cups of veges at lunch but I left that alone and decided to be patient and wait. When she does arrive however, itís with breadrolls, a BBQ and premade pasta salad with the meal idea that we would lightly toast the rolls, top with a bit of chicken and then top with pasta.
Not vegetables, full of carbs and pasta dripping with oil. And of course she gets offended when I donít eat what she has prepared.
So, even this ended up being long. But the short question is, how do you coexist with someone mealwise, when one of you takes changing eating habits more seriously than the other. Each cooking for themselves seems so wasteful, but it looks like itís the way to go. Are there any other options?
