Another busy day but I kept it all together. Breakfast = yogurt with bird seed, well not exactly, that is just what my children call it. Chia seeds, hemp seeds and buckwheat groats; is apparently bird seed in their minds. I started adding cacao nibs to it and it is delightful. Lunch brought egg salad with celery sticks and dinner was ground beef with a load of veggies.
Here is where things started to go to off the rails before I jumped back on track and righted the train. Watching TV is NOT a good thing when trying to eat healthy. I decided to get on my bike tonight and watch some television. So I am pedaling away watching the news, the Coronation Street (yes I am a Corrie fan so what? So are millions of people around the world! Geesh!) then Big Bang came on and that is when all the food commercials started. So I am sitting there and suddenly I am craving Frosty Flakes. I have not eaten Frosty Flakes since I was 12! My mouth started to water and all I could think of was Frosty Flakes until the next round of commercials. I also had this urge to go to Canadian Tire and pick out new patio furniture, weird. So pedaling away then it hit me I really should pick up some Easter cream eggs and perhaps a jug of Tropicana. Wait a minute! Easter cream eggs? I hate those things, they are way too sweet but why was I craving them? Hmmm a nice cold glass of beer, yeah that is what I wanted oh wait, yeah Folgers coffee that would hit the spot. Ok so I must be delirious, Folgers coffee, yuck! I got off the bike and took a look through the fridge. Yum celery and hummus, ok I must step away from the TV for a bit.
I think the best way to solve the obesity epidemic is to go back to the TV when I was a kid. Two channels, CBC and CTV. Saturday nights were a hoot, Lawrence Welk on one channel and hockey on the other. I think I will sue TV commercials for my health issues, or just stop watching them.
Going to bed now to dream of Tony the tiger……..
