Either tomorrow or Wednesday, it will be time for me to cook in the Instant Pot once again. I plan on cooking 2-3 pork chops with cream of mushroom soup and egg noodles for about 12-15 minutes to have a wonderful meal that will last for several days.
My appetite has been peculiar since leaving the hospital. I haven’t eaten as much as I did in the past, and I’ve lost 20 pounds as a result. I don’t we to gain it all back, so I have to watch what and how much I eat at any given time.
The peculiar thing is that some foods no longer taste as good as they used to, which seems strange to me. It doesn’t seem that anything is wrong, just different.
My changing appetite is the reason I want to cook more now that I’m home. Not to mention that cooking at home is cheaper and I can have what I want more often. There are a few things in the refrigerator that I’ll try to finish off first before cooking the pork chops, but I’m not waiting longer than Wednesday.
Changing my eating habits is a necessary thing as I recover and get better. I have to accept that as a changing part of my life going forward. I feel better carrying around 20 fewer pounds, and I want to keep that weight off permanently.
