I have decided to do an experiment.
We – boyfriend and I – had a conversation about what takes up our time and let us to think about our life. Much to the disgust of our friends.
One of the major bones of contention for my friends is that we have hired a chef in during the week.
We are both busy and our downfall is in the picking up of food (ie being organised) and not going to spend a ridiculous amount of money on food daily – (ie. food that requires you to pierce the film).
(not to mention the amount of fights we have over my absolute (irrational) disdain of stopping off to a supermarket on the way home from work or airport.
Due to travel and our businesses we need to fuel our body with the right stuff.
And now, we have someone who makes us breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have set a limit in calories and discussed nutrition and energy requirements.
Apart from the fact that I am taking way more pictures of food these days, I feel infinitely better. The food we are eating is sustaining us throughout long days and maintaining energy levels.
The very first day, as we arrived home to sneak a look in the fridge we actually thought that all the meals had been prepared for the entire week!!! It turns out that we can eat a LOT of vegetables (I couldn’t actually see my boyfriend over the mound of vegetables and salad on his plate) for the calories set. Who would have thought?
Its early days but, I am not going to lie to you, I am a little bit in love with this experiment (do not tell aforementioned boyfriend though as he has been talking about this for an age – deal?).
What have we learnt so far?
Keep in touch monthly (or even more frequently with us*).
* We promise not to virtually stalk you, it will be (at max) weekly round ups and elements that it would be rude not to tell you about...
