And Now, A Rant

It’s the long weekend. Nobody’s hanging around the blogs on a weekend, especially not a LONG weekend, and especially especially one with Valentine’s Day smack in the middle of it. So since it’s quiet, and nobody’s around, I am going to take this opportunity to vent.

Brace yourself for shouting. And some profanity.

Excuse me.

*ahem*

I AM SO FRICKING SICK AND TIRED OF VEGETABLES! GAAAAAAAAAAH! If I see one more vegetable stick or baby carrot I am going to SMACK somebody! One more vegetable that ISN’T A POTATO DISH OF SOME KIND and I am going to LOSE MY SHIT, PEOPLE! I would rather gnaw my own arm off than eat ONE MORE STINKING VEGETABLE. I hate this dieting. HATE. IT! HATEITHATEITHATEIT. All I want is something RICH and CREAMY and FLAVOURFUL and FULL OF BAD THINGS FOR ME. I would do a front crawl through a cheesecake right now. I would stick my head in a chocolate fountain and just start slurping. I would lock myself overnight in a bakery with just a big mug of coffee for company. NO — I want the BIGGEST BREAKFAST in the UNIVERSE! With EXTRA BACON! And ice cream for dessert! ENOUGH ALREADY with the rabbit food. VEGGIE TRAYS — You are my SWORN ENEMY! I declare WAR on celery sticks EVERYWHERE!

Phew.

I feel much better. Thank you.

Pass the salad.

  1. Obviously you have much more willpower than I do. I mean, I had a salad yesterday, but also an entire bag of potato chips. So my vote would be to eat the breakfast you want once a week and avoid the spiralling desperation. (Er, not that you’re desperate.)

    Or how about Mediterranean Stirfry: 1 red pepper, 1/4 pound mushrooms, 2 small zucchini, 1 small onion, 1 garlic clove. Slice em all up (well, mince the garlic) and stir fry in a tablespoon of olive oil. Healthy but not rabbit food. And if you want to be really decadent, sprinkle a little feta cheese on top.

  2. Feel better? Personally I find portion size is a much better way to go. That way you get to have a variety of food and do not feel deprived. Oh, you have to leave the cheesecake out.

  3. I hear you – I am a carnivore – vegetables are not even a good side dish – esp. salad

    I recommend the dark chocolate waffers from Bernard Callebaut as a treat. Dark chocolate is good for you and because it is a little bitter you can only eat one or two at a time. It kills the craving and doesn’t have alot of calories. Also it isn’t cheap so you don’t want to eat too much in one sitting – I just savour the flavour as a treat.

    For vegetables I recommend the Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen by Donna Klein – gives a bunch of tastey vegie dishes. Soups are good too. Tomatoe, Pea, and Butternut Squash are 3 of my fav’s. I lost 40 pounds and kept it off with this cookbook.

  4. Girl, I am the queen of the 100 calorie snacks. And they do make cheesecake in it….but you really have to PRETEND it’s cheesecake, cuz it tastes nothing like it. Actually I love the All Bran Chocolate Chip Bars…yummy….because I loathe veggies, I do, there I said it. And I feel better.
