I find that as I have more real food my taste changes. I thought this excerpt from my blog might start an interesting discussion. Has this happen to you?
And that brings me back to birthday cake. The kiddo picked a birthday cake and on Friday we all had some. I had a piece and found it revolting. I guess that I have been off sugar so long that it was really awful to me, and the frosting, usually my favorite part, was especially awful.
I got up Saturday after a very late night (really early morning!) of talking with my son. I was alone and really not feeling good after getting insufficient sleep, and what did I do? I had a piece of awful cake for breakfast. And it was awful, easy but awful. Why would I do that? And to top it off I had another piece later in the day. I have been trying to figure out why.
The first thing that comes to mind is, I was just too lazy to make a real breakfast. But then I started thing about habits. In the past I would have had a piece of cake for breakfast because I would have liked it , and let's face it many breakfast foods are pretty similar to cake, real sugar bombs. I also think that I was looking for the enjoyment that I have gotten in the past from cake. I was confused about not enjoying it, I could never understand (or frankly, believe) people who said that they did not like cake. They were lying weren't they??? Self-righteous skinny people, who were depriving themselves, but would not admit to it. Could they really have been telling the truth? Really?
And what if I am becoming one of those folks. Will "normal" folks think I am a self-righteous liar. How do I feel about that??? I wonder if it will last... do I even want it to last? Or am I more comfortable being the way I have always been. I am finding my self getting really picky about food. I ordered and Arnold Palmer the other day, a combination of iced tea and lemonade. The lemonade was that ucky stuff that they put in soda dispensers, I paid for it, but I drank the water that was on the table. I am quick to judge things "not worth the calories" now.
Maybe my daughter has given me another gift, freedom from the grip of the cake monster... could it really be?
