The pleasure of eating while reading is going to put pounds on your hips. If you must snack raid the orchard rather than the pantry. I know growing up on the farm feels like its more effort than it's worth but once you start preparing your own meals you're going to realize just how LUCKY you are to have the fresh vegetables. Slow down and learn to enjoy the flavors of vegetables.
And while you're at it start drinking eight glasses of water daily and drink more tea.
Ahhhh the veggies. I certainly didn't appreciate Mom and Dad's garden while I was living there. Or being able to head outside at lunch... stop by the berry bushes, pull up a carrot, pick a plum, before climbing the cherry tree to read a book. :-) 1279 days ago
