And I have to say, in a way it makes life easier. For example, when I used to go to Costco, my eyes would immediately zoom in the prepared foods aisles. Soups, salami, dips, packaged meals, 20x types of meatballs, sausage, lunch meat - it was like crack to me! Unfortunately, my eyes are almost always too big for my stomach and I would walk out with enough food for a family of 10.
Nowadays, I avoid that section all together, stopping by the meat, veggie, and fruit area. In that way, shopping is simpler. I don't think I'll ever be able to resist the lure and ease of Chinese takeout after a long workday, but I'm not trying to be ascetic about this at all.
Excited to have lunch at Little Sheep Hot Pot tomorrow. This place has dong gua which is a popular ingredient in Chinese soups. It's kind of a squash/melon hybrid that I loooooove.
