Sometimes It Pays to Be a Picky Eater

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Logging my calories, etc and taking a look at all of the articles and blogs about eating healthfully on holiday weekends, I am really grateful that I'm a picky eater. Most of the foods that are "trouble foods" are foods that I wouldn't eat in the first place. I can't stand ketchup, mustard, mayonaisse and pickles which rules out things like pasta salads, potato salads, slaws, deviled eggs, many creamy dips, etc. So... essentially when I'm at a barbecue or cookout I can pretty much eat grilled meat or veggie kebabs and raw veggies and dip as far as main courses and sides. This is not to say I can't go overboard even with my quirky food dislikes, but my dislikes remove so many problem foods from my danger list.

    It's a good way to be. I don't think I was ever raised to like over-processed empty-calorie foods. I dated a guy who pretty much lived on fast food and Little Debbie snack cakes, and I COULD NOT get him to eat a vegetable. I don't know how we lasted as long as we did.

    As long as your picky habits don't prevent you from eating something good, then you can't be in too much trouble!
