i am not amish

Thursday, September 27, 2012

I remember wonderful road trips I used to go on to visit Amish territory in PA, IN, and OH. My favorite foods when visiting included fried chicken and shoo-fly pie. I recently came upon a book of Amish recipes, and that got me to thinking about how eating those foods were not exactly helpful to my weight. I would have never admitted it then, but can today- I cannot get away with a steady diet of such dishes because no way on earth do I do physical labor that can support big meals and big calories! Simply put, they can afford more calories than I can because manual labor is hard if you do it all day, every day. Except maybe Sunday for them.

  I agree I do not eat big meals because I do not work like they do
