I don't like anything resembling a milkshake. Yuck. As a child, I wouldn't even eat ice cream--I'd stir it around in the bowl until it melted, and then pour it down the sink. LOL My dad would get SO upset with me, "wasting" food like that!... hm...
As for the bars... I don't like granola bars, protein bars, any of that stuff, anyway--with or without the diabetes, or weight issues, I wouldn't eat them. Just not for me and my tastebuds...
I too much prefer the taste and texture of fresh foods, and do cook most of my own meals...
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." Walter P. Chrysler said it, I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steadfast... and that works too! LOL
Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called the PRESENT!
