I keep several bags of veggies in assorted places throughout my home. Some people might consider them "hiding places." I prefer to call them "easily accessible." There are some in my nightstand, some in my sewing cabinet(s), some in my car console, some in the desk drawer next to me. In fact, I am munching on a handful right now. Mm mm scrumptious. Yay for veggies!
Pumpkins and Corn are my favorites. Halloween Harvest pumpkins and corn, to be specific. I also love peanuts. Circus. And fish. Swedish. And beans. Jelly. I figure that's a pretty good blend of carbs and protein. Sometimes, when I'm feeling especially healthy, I'll throw in a plent-i-pac of fruit. Juicy. I like to mix things up. I'm crazy like that.
And so I pose the question, how does one eat so many veggies and fruit~more than the daily requirements~and still struggle with double chins and abdominal rolls? It's perplexing to me. In fact, I was so concerned, I decided to consult the Dr. Dr. Pepper, if any of you are familiar with his reputation. I plan on meeting with him this afternoon, over a cup of rabbit poop ice. I'll let you know how it goes. In the meantime, I'll double fist my veggies and protein while I walk this precarious high-wire. Remember, it's all about the balance, people. All about the balance.
