Day 26 "When Food Disappoints You"
According to author Linda Spangle, if I'm looking forward to a treat and then I taste it, and don't love it, leave it. Like if the chocolate cake I'm dying for is stale and dry, throw it out.
I had this experience, not with a treat, but with fruit. I had a banana on Sunday that was slightly green tinged. I prefer bananas when they're just getting a few brown freckles, and they're sweeter, softer, almost creamy. But I ate it anyway. Maybe if this happens again, I'll toss it and reach for another snack.
Also, I like grapefruit. Well, I thought I did. Lately I feel like "nothing says DIET like grapefruit." I ate my grapefruit snack at my desk at work, served on a paper towel, and hardly tasted it. Not enjoyable! Today I had my grapefruit on a plate, arranging the sections prettily, and sprinkled with splenda...and I really enjoyed it!
