- I like food....a lot
- I have started eating a lot more vegetables at work as a method to cut back on my snacks
- Food is advertised at all hours on every channel.
- Sub-Note: I could control item number 3 if I just stayed away from the Food Network. I'm like a junkie always coming back for another fix. Diners, Drivers and Dives....EVIL. Especially when watching at 11 pm.
If they were covered in chocolate or tasted like bacon, I might have less of a problem eating them. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the taste of most of them (I'm eyeballing you asparagus. Mr. "I make your pee smell funny.") but this food group has always been an afterthought for me rather than a main course. In other words, I don't go out my way to eat them.
I shouldn't complain. My wife is an amazing cook and can make even P.S.O.T. (Pig Sh*t on Toast) taste like a porterhouse steak. She has a magic to her cooking so even veggies take on a certain culinary charm. But now that I'm consciously trying to watch what I eat, vegetables have become a chore.
I suppose that it's inevitable. As long as my stomach is the first thing to enter a room, I will need to take strides to cull my gastronomical longings. So for now I must remind myself to put down the cupcake and pick up the carrot *shudders**
