I’ve been putting this off! The first tasks were easy but this next one is going to be a huge challenge. I’ve been procrastinating so Lynne made an Action Plan for me and plans to enforce it. She even made me sign it! Considering it is signed and sealed I’d hate to see what would happen if I break the pact so I figure I might as well just go with it. One of the things on my list is organic cooking. This will be tough as I have been living off convenience and not truly cooking over the past few years. Lots of take out, Wendy’s, Subway, Water Street Bakery and when I did cook, it was frozen pizza’s, boxed meals which just needed to be mixed up and popped in the oven etc.
I use to cook back in my stay at home mommy days and was actually a huge Martha Stewart fan but the past few years I as I became so consumed with work, I started opting for convenience. Now it’s been so long I don’t remember how to cook. Lynne had to intervene and is forcing me into a healthier lifestyle. She’s now reading a book Gorgeously Green Diet which has recipes for different shades of green. It’s not a diet but a guide for eating and living a healthier lifestyle. Lynne’s Bright Green and says that I should be aiming for Light Green. She made up a meal plan for everyday of the week and an organic grocery list. I did my best to negotiate but it was a no go, everything had to be organic and healthy.
These recipes are supposed to be very quick and easy but I look at this grocery list and I don’t even know what some of this stuff is! There are no pictures so I have no idea what the end result is supposed to look like. As I appreciate Lynne’s concern and motivational yet forceful push, I think she is also very curious as to how this whole production will play out. Can Gorgeously Green’s Light Green eating plan work on someone like Virginia? I swear she is experimenting with me and secretly plans to write a book about this someday.
