I love food. LOVE it! And thankfully, I was blessed with my dad's metabolism so my love affair has been fairly well disguised. I ate whatever I want, almost whenever I wanted, and as much of it as I could put in my stomach. I have a few food allergies so I tend to avoid those things as to not spend a day hugging the toilet. But barring those items, nothing was off limits! Healthy. Junk. I ate it all.
These days, things are a bit different. Actually, a LOT different.
I eat no where near as much at a time as I had prior, but have to eat more frequently. I was a grazier anyways, but now it's just ridiculous! There is almost always food in my mouth. Breakfast. Post-breakfast snack. Nibbling. Pre-lunch snack. Lunch. Post-lunch snack. Nibbling. Afternoon snack. Nibbling. Early evening snack. Dinner. Post-dinner/pre-bed snack. Ridiculous.
What I eat has also changed. Strangely. I love snacking on sweets, yogurt, fresh fruits and veggies. Add in dips and I'm set. Or at least I use to... The only fruit I can stomach is grapes, red grapes specifically. And ONLY if they are frozen. Veggies are hit and miss. I'm stuck with anything potato, green beans, and lettuce (but only as a caesar salad). Sweets are a thing of the past. Cookies, brownies, cakes, and all other baked goods don't appeal to me at all. My only sweet friend left is ice cream, but instead of every night it is only here and there.
I miss so many foods right now. I look and think of them longingly. Last Friday taught me not to give in to all of my "cravings" or dietary desires. In the meantime, I'm thinking I might buy some stock in the potato and cheese markets. Oh and the Mexican food restaurants! You can never go wrong with cheese, potatoes or Mexican food! With that, I'm thinking I may have some chips and queso dip for my post-dinner/pre-bedtime nibbling...
