I am a baaaad eater.
As in a eat a lot of bad foods.
I have been known to have ice cream for breakfast.
That kind of bad.
Chocolate is my drug of choice.
And I am overweight.
So I am not advocating my food choices.
I try, I really do.
I bought a Ninja blender.
They had them at my warehouse store and I got it for about $80, which is much better than the $400 - $800 I saw when I researched them on-line.
I was going to make smoothies.
It even came with a recipe book with lots of healthy smoothie choices.
And I did try a couple.
I really did.
And we have been using that blender a LOT.
Yum, yum, yum.
So much for eating healthy, right?
Well, not entirely wrong.
BUT, for me, I am trying to incorporate some health into my bad eating.
So, yesterday I made myself a milkshake.
(I made them for the rest of my family too, just so you know.)
But for me, I made a chocolate milkshake,
and I put fresh strawberries and blueberries in it.
I also made a macaroni salad to bring to my sister's house for a picnic.
There is a bag of kale in my fridge.
Yes, I did, I put some chopped kale in my macaroni salad.
(Well, I actually split the salad into two salads and put it in one.)
Today I am trying to eat some leftover fruit salad.
I have a little hot fudge sauce in the fridge.
So I can look at this three ways:
- I am ruining healthy food by eating it with unhealthy food.
- I am ruining the taste of unhealthy food by adding healthy food.
- I am improving unhealthy food choices by adding healthy foods and getting some healthy food into my body.
I choose door number 3.
