Yeah, same for me with the food prep. I just finished my first MC, 10 days. During that time, I did all the shopping, all the cooking (and yes, since I didn't need time for eating, I used the time make things look and taste great!).
Day 2 was a huge chocolate cake for my grandmothers 93rd...day 5 was wife's sister and husband for a weekend of steaks, lobster, wine. Then there was the slow cooker chicken stew, the guac I make for corn chips...
All in all, it was pretty easy. I'm just sitting here enjoying the fact that I didn't do a SWF (Salt-Water-Flush) this morning.
