$240 Worth of Pudding

Friday, December 07, 2012

Well, $241.00 actually. That is the approximate dollar amount that I spent on food – this week.
I guarantee you – I ain’t got it like that. I don’t even want it like that, but between eating out at King, Donald, Bell, Kentucky, or anyone else’s kitchen over my own, I’m stuck.

Granted, I did spend about $100 on groceries. I saw a show once that suggested that people who eat a lot of fast food could benefit from buying frozen dinners. The meals are still convenient, but healthier.

That might have worked if my stomach weren’t always in Man vs. Food mode. If I see, smell, or sense anything edible and succulent, I want it in the worst way— like Rihanna and Chris Brown duet chanting birthday cake. (For the record, as a former fat kid and current fat adult I don’t ever crave cake. Contrary to what Fifty Cent would have you believe, I would rather eat macaroni and cheese.)

So, when I bought the week’s worth of frozen meals, I told myself that I would also eat vegetables at lunch and dinner to complement my entrees. However, when it was time to eat, I just ate double entrees instead. Hence, the gaping hollow inside of my freezer shelves, wallet, and waistband buttonhole.

Plus, my lovely family wanted pizza with cheese . . . that I ate, along with cheddar and sour cream chips. What a difference a day makes! Take that Essylstyns!

I don’t cry over spilt milk. I curdle and eat it melted or dried over golden waves of potatoes and grains.

Love you like a fat kid loves dairy,

  • PYNETREE awful to see it in dollar amount! Almost as painful as seeing it in body fat...

    You can make this better...Only YOU can eat smarter.

    The choice has to come from you. Try to lessen the damage, by finding out what are the healthiest selections of the Fast Food poisons, at your choice of places. IF you have to go there...don't ever PAY them for the most high fat, high sodium, high calorie unhealthy Big Burger, or Bucket, or Super Sized anything. If you have to give them your cash...pick the least offensive menu items.
