I've remarked before about being relieved when i can get back to eating the way that makes me feel good.... I'm going to have to figure out how to eat the way i want to, all the time!
Don't get me wrong, it's fun to "misbehave" when i WANT to, but extremely vexing to "have to" eat wrongly when i don't. If i don't feel like eating at all -- even something "innocent" -- it's annoying to be put into a position where i feel i should. OTOH, i don't want to impose my unconventional patterns on my husband -- at least, not more than he's stuck with already! ...So how am i going to manage, so that two independent-minded people can eat what/when they like? It's not going to be TOO much longer before he decides to retire and be around a whole lot more.
Well, it's not only going to require keeping the right foods and drinks (yet to be determined) handy, but some research into MORE nearby restaurants with appropriate menu possibilities. Sure one can get a low-carb meal almost anywhere, but one does get tired of the same ol' side-dishes to go with one's simple meat-entree, and i got burned-out on salads way back in the '70s! I don't believe i've ever read many truly creative ways of making ordinary restaurants answer to our LCHF requirements -- i mean, i've been ordering sandwiches without the bread for YEARS, and more suggestions of that nature are pretty useless.
So anybody out there have unusual and brilliant ways of coping with the restaurant question?
