To Eat or Not To Eat

French Word of the Day: sucre (sue- cruh)- sugar

With 2012 has come everyone’s resolutions.  While mine are all lofty goals like world peace and ending world hunger (or they would be if I’d made them), everyone else has the same one: eat healthy.

Now, I’m a big fan of the healthy eating.  It’s important for healthy living, blah, blah, blah.  I have a chronic illness; I get it.  But lately, my food pyramid has resembled this:

When I haven’t had any sleep, it looks like this:

Yes, that is coffee spilling.  Spilling is a special talent of mine that I display whenever I’m sleep deprived.

(The color used for caffeine is called “asparagus.”  If your asparagus is actually that color, you should probably throw it out.)

My family and coworkers have all embraced the veggies-good, lean meats-good, and carbs-are-evil diet.  Well, everyone except my father.  As he doesn’t buy his food, he’s on that diet by default.

By guilt/ peer pressure, I’m on it too.

I have had only ONE Oreo cookie today.  That’s a third of a serving size.  No one eats under a serving size; you eat above the serving size and pretend like the amount you ate equals the serving size.  I don’t even really like Oreo cookies (except with peanut butter à la Lindsay Lohan in Parent Trap), it was just the only sugar item available.

I need a pain au chocolat.

    Mine has big gaps labeled, “Hmmm … did I eat today? Maybe I should eat. Yeah. Wait, cooking is work. Crap.”
