Who’s on Erin’s Personal Health Professional Wish List?
A few weeks back, one of our fave bloggers Peanut Butter Fingers posed a really good question: If you could have any sort of personal health professional, who would you choose? Since last month we talked fitness bucket lists for our Question of the Week, this time, we decided to tackle this slightly different twist on our wish lists. Read each Friday for our answers!
You guys. Come on. Do you know me at all? You totally know what I’d choose as a personal health professional. Sure, a massage therapist at my beck and call would be amazing. A personal trainer would be nice. But hands down, no doubt about it, no question. I would choose a personal chef.
I’ve documented the fact that I don’t love cooking. I’m a creature of habit and don’t push myself often to cook new things although I do love trying new foods. Plus, since my kids were born, it’s so much harder to do anything complicated in the kitchen. Sure, my toddler loves to “help,” but if anything is slightly complicated, it’s sure to end in disaster. Keeping two kids happy while I’m trying to also focus on cooking? It’s a tough task and some days impossible. So a chef that could keep it fresh? Don’t mind if I do.
I wouldn’t need a chef for every meal, although I wouldn’t complain if a live-in chef landed on my doorstep. But someone to come and prepare my family a delicious meal for dinner? Yes, please. Of course, the chef would have to be well versed in nutrition. I don’t need a personal chef serving me up unhealthy foods. But someone to do the thinking for me when it comes to dinner time? Someone who enjoys laboring over the hot stove? Someone who can get dinner ready while I take care of kids who tend to get grumpy and need a lot of attention right at dinnertime? Well, sign me up. I wouldn’t even complain about doing the dishes, I swear.
I kind of hate this Question of the Week. It has made me daydream way too much.
Would you want a personal chef if you could afford it? Or am I alone in my desire to avoid cooking? —Erin
