I was just thinking ---

that years of dieting and then trying to live healthy have given me an advantage in times like these. I have followed so many different food plans that I can eat almost anything. Hubby is dying to go to the store to buy eggs and some things he eats every day. I can eat anything. I suspect I have 2 months or more of food here in the house until I would need to go to buy something. The meals I'd make might not have quite as good nutrients and nutrient balance as when I have more choices, but I'd be just fine. I don't have to eat breakfast food at breakfast. Don't have to have a certain thing with a certain thing (like garlic bread with spaghetti, or applesauce with pork). I know I can count calories and maintain my weight using a very wide variety (or not) of foods. It might be easier to manage my hunger and maintain my weight with lots of veggies, plenty of fiber, and lean protein, but I can adjust my portions and succeed even if I am eating denser calorie foods.
