This week, I ordered already made meals from a lovely service here in the south Bali region called Guilt Free Bali.
Given that Jon and I were spending most days at a cafe working and the fact that we have a poorly equipped kitchenette at the apartment we are renting, I thought it could be convenient and a special treat.
Guilt Free Bali came at the recommendation of a friend, and it was lovely telling someone what our dietary needs were and have them easily accommodated. What I did find, however, was that given the way we are living right now, which includes a challenging internet connection at home, we spend more time out of the house than in. Because of this, there were a few days when spending the day out at a cafe working that I would eat lunch late and not have need for dinner, which was already waiting for me when I get home.
The challenge here is more a product of a digital nomad lifestyle than it is having a catering service prepare my meals. I’m also really aware of the fact that I wanted this to be some sort of substitution to the sensation and nourishment I get out of cooking for us each night, which it wasn’t.
It’s the act of cooking each night, and the rhythm it creates in my day that I miss. It’s an aspect of being nomadic that I have yet to master well.
