I haven’t eaten fast food in probably 5+ years. But today, while Christmas shopping, I walked past one of the nastier restaurants on the planet that was reeking of rancid bubbling oil and I thought about Tim Ferris and his damn book, The 4 Hour Body, and immediately craved whatever the hell was rotting under the heat lamps. Why does this sabotage happen?
I abstained, but barely. However, I will admit, the Teacake Bakery and its seductive ginger cookie lured me in. Actually, I didn’t know that soft sin existed until I was 10 feet inside of the place. But I rationalized it, because it’s not “white” (which Ferris has banned), its caramel-y brown goodness, so it must be okay. Negatory Blue Dice. But it was goooood.
So today’s ‘diet’: Thyme-y Dill-icous Fluffy EggbScramble, a whole cooked Dungeness crab and a ginger cookie.
Better luck tomorrow.
