In Which I Rant a Little
I don’t meant to be a jerk to vegetarians and vegans. I really don’t. But I can’t stand the thought of eating NO bacon. Or no Gouda thick with smoked flavor. Or never dripping whipped cream over my tongue. Or never again sawing into a thick steak, the tines of my fork sinking slowly into the seared flesh as the succulent juices pour out bloody red. I can’t stand the thought of never again flipping sushi into my mouth with the chopsticks.
I also can’t stand the thought of giving up Atkins. People think of Atkins as so unhealthy (what, you just eat cheeseburgers all the time without the bun?) but they’re doing Atkins wrong. This is a typical Atkins day for me:
Breakfast: a handful of nuts. I am not particularly hungry on the weekdays because I get up so early for work. On the weekends I let myself have coffee with heavy cream, nutmeg and splenda. Sometimes I’ll have eggs or berries and yogurt.
Lunch: Chicken, grilled. Either 7 stalks of celery, or a cut up green pepper, or a half cup Brussels sprouts, or a half can of green beans. Sometimes a big salad.
Snack: some string cheese, maybe a few sliced of lunch meat rolled up in some lettuce,
Dinner: a hamburger with an egg on top. Or chicken with avocado. Or a big fat salad with lots of healthy veggies all over it. Or eggs with cheese and salsa.
Honestly, this way of eating feels so good, and right. I have tons of energy and I’m still losing weight, and I NEVER have to be hungry. Do I splurge? Of course I splurge, have you read my blog? But I think a healthy eating lifestyle leaves room for cheat days (and nights) and occasional re-feeds.
ATKINS FOR LIFE.
- Me: Oh, so what's your favorite restaurant?
- Friend of a Friend: Oh, it's so hard to pick. I don't know. Probably Applebee's. Maybe O'Charley's?
- Me: Nope. *walks away*
Having a bad expirience at a restuarant you really love is like getting into a ight with an old friend. You don’t really know how to go back, you’re afraid that the fight means you’re not really friends any more, you’re terrified to be let down again. That’s kind of how I’m feeling about Hillbilly Tea. After my last fairly mediocre experience there, I am hesitant to return. Do I go back and expect the same level of fun and perfection I experienced before? OR do I go back and get overpriced food and not great service? I do not know and it makes me confused.
