I hate cooking.
It’s true. I hate it. I do know how to cook and when I do cook it tastes okay… I just don’t like doing it. (I think that “lazy” is the word of the day in my home.)
But, with my plastic-free challenge looming, I need to get my act together and stop relying on pre-packaged frozen food. I’m asking for a vegan cookbook called Veganomicon for Christmas. While I’m not technically vegan, I don’t eat meat and can’t eat dairy.
Lucky for me, I live just a few minutes’ walk from Granville Island Market, a huge year-round market with lots of local produce, grains, nuts, seeds, meats, fish, etc etc. My goal is to create a weekly menu once a week and get the groceries I’ll need from Granville. It’s easy to shop there because I can avoid plastic stickers on produce (since there are none) and any grains/etc are in bulk.
Still, I’m nervous that I’ll end up cheating on my plastic resolution because of laziness and my hatred towards cooking! The fact that I hate my kitchen (one of those teeny galley kinds) and live by (and therefor cook for just) myself probably doesn’t help matters.
Any tips on making this any easier on me??
