She does the grocery shopping because I 'can't' do it. No energy. ADD (seriously, I take meds for it). ADDers get overwhelmed when faced with a bunch of choices.Thus the need for a weekly menu and a shopping list, as someone suggested above. You don't have to make choices if it's planned all ahead of time.And that's another "can't." What would you do if you were single? Starve in the streets? No. You would go shopping and make food like people have done since the beginning of time.****When I was single I ate out about 3 times a week. Then throw a frozen pizza in the oven on others days.I used to menu plan religiously, and shop with a list and ONLY buy what was on that list. I stopped being so careful earlier this year and my food costs went up by 50% (still within my budget, but still - up 50%). I'm back to shopping only with a list and costs are back down.***AWESOME! I'm passing this tip onto my wife!As for time and energy - I work 80+ hours a week, run my own business and I still find time to shop and cook.****DIVERSITY! Don't judge me because I have less energy than you. We are not cloned robots. Now, partly that's because I looooooooove cooking. But I do it. Even when I am working 100 hours a week - I do it. So, yes, anyone can do it. It takes a lot of planning (I cook a lot on weekends for the week these days, and I freeze stuff), but if you plan ahead for it you or she can fit it in.****Thank you! Very good stuff (except for you expecting me to have your energy level!)
