Tell me what you eat, I’ll tell you who you are. ~Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
I have this wonderful friend name Deb. She is struggling with single-life after being married for 30 years and divorced for one [sad face]. So I try to keep her company as much as I can to prevent her from being extremely lonely; thus, is why I have not posted to my blogs regularly.
Well last week Deb called me with a healthy eating suggestion. I listened but I wasn’t interested in what she had to say. Laughter!
You would think, since she only weighs about 105 lbs (and is very healthy) I (who is overweight) would listen to her.
Everywhere we go she is always getting compliments about her size and her appearance. Okay! So, I don’t learn quickly! Laughter!
Well, any-who-how, she called to tell me I should eat Special-K cereal with almond milk. My first thought, “yuck!”
Really! Almond milk! Special-K! Gross!
Well, last week I thought I would try drinking almond/coconut milk. Let’s just say, I didn’t think the milk was for me. So, I left it in the fridge and went about my days as the thought of being wasteful tugged at me.
So last night Deb and I went to the store. She needed to pick up a few items and I went to keep her company.
Then we got to the milk section. She was searching for the almond milk. I happened to be standing in front of it. No! I’m not that big that I hindered her from being able to see it! But I was standing right in front of it as she was looking for it in another section. So, I said, “Here it is!” She turns around and begins a healthy food dialogue with me. Ugh! Really! Can’t we talk about junk food! I likes that stuffs! LOL’s.
Then the tugging begins! I remembered I had that expensive almond/coconut milk in the fridge and no one wanted it!
So, we go down the cereal aisle! There is Miss. Health Nut looking for the Special-K cereal! Ugh! Let’s look at all the cereal that is high in sugar! I likes that stuffs! Laughter!
Long story short! I brought a box of Special-K cereal with chocolate chunks and ate it with my almond/coconut milk this morning! OMG! That combination is so darn good! I wanted a second bowl! Yum!
