The shame of it all...

I only eat multi-grain bread, buy organic fruits, veggies, chicken and beef. Heck, even my milk is organic and so are my freaking eggs and popcorn!

But the thing  is…every once in a while…I’m making rice crispy treats at two in the morning ‘casue I’m having a sugar melt-down.

Thank heavens for the 24-hr grocery five minutes away…actually four-minutes and thirty-three seconds and every second counts when a sugar craving hits.

I cannot keep cookies in the house or candy or Peeps…those sugary marshmallow things. I found one in the back of the closet last month, nearly fainted from the sheer joy of finding candy, bit into it and dislocated my jaw. The trials and tribulations of a junk food addict.

I know these are all sins and no way should I be running out at 2 AM in my jammies for cereal and marshmallows but it happens. Then it occurred to me that maybe not everything needs to be healthy. Maybe a little happy is good too. 

Oh I know that skinned chicken breast is so yummy and the apple is just lovely but in my world the hamburger wins out over the breast and the cookie takes the apple every time.

So what about this...I said to myself. One yummy meal a week
where sin can happen and guilt gets kicked to the curb. For me it’s fried chicken, mashed potatoes with real butter and gravy…lots and lots of gravy. And desert. Not some frozen yogurt stuff with more organic fruit but cake! Real live cake with icing. Chocolate cake and butter icing. My meal of sin and gluttony.

So what is your meal of sin and shame? If we have one totally yummy, guilt free meal a week maybe the apple and skinned chicken breast won’t be so bad. Right? Maybe?

Happy Eating.
