…Relationship With Food During Covid-19

"During the pandemic, there are days when I don't eat. I'll be hungry, and I'll have food, but I'll just simply decline to eat. Quarantine robs me of my desire to eat, and depression from said quarantine robs me of the energy to cook. But what I can do, what's been my placebo for a healthy eating regimen lately, is Battle Chef Brigade.

Battle Chef Brigade is an action RPG/ match 3 puzzle platformer that answers the question "What if we made Iron Chef a video game?" Released in 2017, the game stars Mina Han, a cook at her family's restaurant who dreams of becoming a member of the elite Battle Chef Brigade—which is, as far as I can tell, a super secret club of chefs who cook really, really well and use their culinary skills to save the world possibly? I haven't exactly grasped what the Battle Chefs do when there isn't a plague poisoning the world's food supply.

When the pandemic started, I heard a lot of jokes about gaining a "Quarantine 15." At my old job, our daily Zoom meetings would be people snarking about how all they did was eat all day. Meanwhile, I was barely subsistence eating. A piece of toast here, an apple there, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dinner (which I'll do even on a good day because PBJs flipping ROCK.) Then, when I am hungry to the point that I have to do something, I pick up the phone and order DoorDash. While I feel pretty good about the healthy choices I make there, I still feel like Bleeped text because I feel like I'm not adulting properly. I have fish and chicken and vegetables in my freezer; I should be eating them instead of "wasting money" by ordering out. It contributes to this negative spiral of feeling bad for not eating, then feeling bad when I do eat, which causes me to abandon everything that makes me feel bad for something that makes me feel better: Battle Chef…"
