Zombie Oatmeal

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Breakfast was a lazily microwaved gooey mass of oatmeal, protein powder and ancient freezer burned blueberries. The berries turned the bowl into a color that was somewhere between cement and moldy blue cheese. Although the color was off-putting I'm positive those blueberries were the only thing that kept the flavor bearable enough for me to slide the food down my throat. I don't like breakfast. I will have any meal over breakfast and yet I never skip it. I can't remember the last time I didn't have breakfast.

Normally my most-important-meal-of-the-day tastes much better than this one did, then again, most of my breakfasts don't have 24 grams of protein. So I forced myself to eat it. It really wasn't the worst thing I've eaten but I like to enjoy my food and there was not one moment of enjoyment in that zombie oatmeal. The last two bites were the worst, I wasn't sure I would make it but I did.

So now I'm curious, what is the worst thing any of you have forced yourself to eat in the name of health?

    I haven't eaten super healthy food for very long, but I do remember trying to eat an egg that was fried inside a piece of toast...kinda like sunny side up...couldn't stomach it. It just looked terrible. emoticon

    Green juice with lot's of spinach and celery. I convinced myself juicing was oh-so-healthy and so bought a juicer and -yuck!!!
    I use it for fruit juices now. Those are pretty good.

    I got to where I couldn't stand the cabbage soup back in the day when the cabbage soup diet was popular.

    I made a breakfast of flaxseed and peanut butter. Oh the horror!

    Eh sounds delicious! I think the worst thing I ever forced myself to eat was a Gillian McKeith recipe for a bean and veggie stew - think no salt, stock, flavor of any kind. It almost came back up into the bowl! Or it could be the avocado, basil and cucumber juice smoothie I also had that week thanks to Ms McKeith. I've trouble eating something I don't like...a lot of trouble swallowing and keeping it down so I tend to stick to things that are healthy and tasty. emoticon

    I have always hated beets - so I went out and bought a jar. Turns out they were Amish Wedding pickled beets - on of the best tastes I've ever had.
