bad choices, good friends

I’m still not making great choices when it comes to buying food. I’m okay when I eat with other people — I feel like their presence mandates that I eat vegetables. But when I’m alone, I will sometimes fall prey to my old wants. Those truly awful Hot Pockets that are so cheap and filling. Frozen buffalo wings. Yum.

I think that, as long as I picture my friend M. whispering words of encouragement in my ear (“Hey, Jasmine, get the spinach salad! You love spinach, remember?”), I should be fine. She’s always training for something, so I like to bug her for tips on what to eat and when, is gatorade really sugary, and why sugar-free Red Bull is actually not all that awful.

Stuff like Morningstar Farms corn dogs, LEAN Pockets (actually don’t suck), frozen sweet potato fries, no sugar added fudgesicles (actually creamy goodness), etc., etc. And I can’t wait to introduce you to my favorite jerk place which makes that most delicious Caribbean/Midwestern speciality, jerk catfish. Mmmmmmm…
