After dropping my husband at the airport today I decided to stop by the grocery store and pick up a few edible treats for myself. Lately I have been wondering if a bit more variation in my daily diet would be good. So, here is what I purchased and ate and my reaction.
A small carton of potato salad: sour tasting, stodgy and not particularly enjoyable even after being slathered in freshly ground pepper.
A Kind bar: it has been nearly two years since I have eaten one of these due to the high fat content so I was certainly looking forward to eating it as my luncheon dessert. It seemed kind of tasteless and tough even though it was fresher than the last ones I tried so long ago. Kind of blah.....
A prepared salad: the lettuce was dried out, the grated cheese was some variety I have never before tried and never want to eat again. The whole thing tasted "odd" and I didn't finish it. It looked so nummy in the carton.
So much for trying prepared foods, nutrition bars and pre-made salads.
I think I won't bother trying any more "treats" and just stick with my own cooking and simple meals. They make my body happy. I am glad I gave some of the things I have been drooling over in the store a try. There will be no more drooling!!! There will be no more trying. Better to stick with what I know I can eat and enjoy, even if the usual meals seem boring sometimes.
