How right you are! Have you ever tried eating those nasty little rice cakes? Good God, those are the most bland, tasteless thing ever created. I eat what I like and besides, we're all going to die anyway, so why not enjoy life and good food.
Actually, I grew up having grandparents who always planted a huge garden. so when i would visit in the summer, we always had lots of fresh vegatables and my grandma and mom always did lots of home canning. In fact, i went home to my mom's for two weeks this summer and did lots of canning. Home canned vegatables always taste better than store bought stuff.
Yes, water is the best thing to have when it comes to satisfying thirst. It may not taste good, but it's good for your system. I've heard it flushes out impurities, and you don't get the craving to drink it all the time like fizzy drinks, which contain sugar and lots of other stuff.
If you think water doesn't taste good on its own, you can always try putting it in the fridge, or putting some ice in it, or flavouring it with something.
I've had an utterly gormet weekend, eating absolutely fresh corgettes, squash, sweetcorn, carrots, tomatoes, various herbs, onions, garlic, apples, plums, pears and potatoes, all plucked from the ground, and all wonderful.
I think we are trained to think like that at times. Growing up ice cream or something sweet came after a meal and was something to look to after dinner. It is like a reward. We know it is bad and that is why it is so tempting.
Now I'm hungry and don't know what to eat...I basically skipped breakfast and now it's lunch time...hmmm Brunch food sounds good. Maybe I'll make myself a egg in the basket I think it's called where you cook an egg in the middle of your bread. sooo good.
My dad is a diabetic too..but he doesn't watch what he eats. When Iw as living with them back before I was married and still in college I would joke with my mom about a hot proffesor I could hook her up once dad kicks the bucket. dad didn't like that, mom laughed, but he is SLOWLY starting lol
