@rumpunch712:  My SO gets groceries for me when he goes to the market. Could yours? Give him a list of things you need for those days.

@rumpunch712:  you guys sound freakishly like me & my FI~ We are in the same friggin boat! I don’t want frozen pizza bites, macaroni, or toaster strudels EVERY morning (though I love them occasionally). It’s like, I WANT TO COOK!! My house consists of my dad, my sisters 25yr old boyfriend, my sister, my mom & I. My sister’s boyfriend buys TONS of crap food andmy parents never grocery shop, so it’s extrememly hard to cook decent food. & Lord knows when we buy groceries and leave them at my house they are gone the next day!!!

I know money is tight, we’ve had to wait and be miserable! FI moves in April 6, I will after the wedding. And I’m so excited to eat good food! You hang in there! I haven’t quite found a solution, but I’ll let you know if I do.

Good luck :}

@rumpunch712:  Can’t you just bring some groceries over and cook for the both of you at his place? Be sneaky. Bring salad ingredients… but buy a baguette (or make garlic toast or something) as well so it’s not just a salad for dinner. If you only want a little bread, only have a little. Compromise. There must be SOME home cooked meals that he likes, right? Maybe he just doesn’t know how to make them himself yet.

When you move in together you’ll have a similar problem… only you’ll be complaining that you have to make 2 separate meals, never eat togther, and your SO is making himself fat.

Have a “prep” day where you make containers of healthy food and just microwave them when you want it.

Example: On Monday, I chopped a bunch of vegetables and set them aside. I got 5 microwavable tupperware containers and added low sodium marinara (tomato basil) to the bottom of each. Then I mixed up the veggies and distributed them between the 5 containeres. I shredded some mozzarella on the top and BOOM. Awesome lunch every day that I just grab and go (extra 15 minutes of sleep for me!)

It’s possible, it just takes a lot of pre-planning.

 

Today’s grab-n-go is broccoli florets (raw), zucchini (raw), and spinach (raw) with part skim mozzarella that I sliced from a brick.

All this = 80 calories. Super filling when heated up because the sauce and cheese mix together and the veggies cook. SOO GOOD.
