Food, Glorious Food!

I have a complicated relationship with food. I don’t like eating in large groups, especially when standing. Stress takes away my appetite, but boredom increases it. I will often forget to eat breakfast or lunch, but become super cranky when I skip meals. My father-in-law is one of the few who appreciates the fact that I choose my restaurant meals based on the dessert menu. That being said, my five favorite foods are:

  1. Goat cheese
  2.  Homemade chocolate chip cookies—my own
  3. Peaches
  4.  Sushi
  5. Chocolate


  1. I love food and it takes a lot of control to not weigh 300 pounds. I've been really good about counting carbs since April. The question is, can I continue this life style for the rest of my life? I sure hope so because if not, I'll become a Diabetic. The threat is already there.

  2. I love your assessing the dessert line-up first, Jen. A slice of fine cheesecake is worth two rolls, at least.

    I, too, eat when I'm bored. Not a good policy, but it's a hard programming to overrule.

    I've never eaten sushi. The idea makes me cringe.

  3. I don't have a sweet tooth, so invariably do not bother about desserts. If I'm going to have have two courses, then I prefer a starter and a main.
    I've never eaten (or even wanted to eat) sushi either!

  4. Hi Joyce, yes, it does take a lot of control! Good luck with your efforts.

    Ana & Paula, sushi is really good! You should try it sometime. :)

  5. I always check out the dessert menu before I order my meal so I know if I'm saving room for dessert or not!
