Oh that is so me, from the time my feet hit the floor in the morning I am figuring out what I am having for breakfast, then on to lunch and dinner, with a few well placed snacks tossed in and depending on my mood maybe even some chocolate. I can’t fathom people who just eat for pure sustenance and not for the enjoyment of food and people that “forget to eat”? That is something I could never do anymore than I could forget to breathe. I am a Foodie, pure and simple, I love to cook, saute, sear, fry, bake, steam, poach, you name it, I will try it!!!
I have my list of favorite foods, seafood, pasta (you might think I was Italian not Irish) a good beef tenderloin, a great steak, Eggs Benedict, and crusty bread. And not much beats a fantastic rare burger with lettuce, tomato, mayo and some ketchup. Cheesecake, either plain or flavored, good decadent chocolate cake with chocolate frosting tops the dessert list. Who am I kidding if it is chocolate it tops the dessert list.
All of these reasons are why I constantly fight the “Battle of The Bulge” on a daily basis, as a good friend of mine has been known to say. “I can do some serious damage with a fork”, that is why I have resigned myself to love my curves and love the gym. Together we can make my love of food and the knowledge that I live to eat, not eat to live work.
