Because that's usually how "be careful what you wish for" happens.
Here's what I'd like. I'd like for food to be not so important, not so enticing, not so alluring.
And you know the only people who aren't interested in food are, um, sick.
I don't want to be sick.
I just don't want to think about food all the damned time.
My meals are pretty simple and largely the same: some kind of vegetable soup or stew with protein for dinner, bacon and eggs for breakfast, dinner leftovers for lunch. I try not to snack, but if I do it's a Larabar, either homemade or purchased. (The seasonal Gingerbread ones are delicious.)
See? Right there. I'm recommending food to you. Alluring food. Tastyyummymmmmmmmmmmgood food.
When, in fact, sleek and muscular Tabby is doing just fine.
I want to be sleek and muscular Tabby, turning my nose up at the occasional meal and picking at the rest.
Instead – and especially at breakfast – I DIG IN! I do love my bacon and eggs, which I frequently make as a cheese-free omelette filled with salsa and chopped avocados.
I'm never as excited about lunch or dinner as I am about breakfast. But I never miss a meal and I wake up planning dinner.
So there you go, Universe. I've put it out there.
- I want food to NOT be on my radar.
- I want to be as excited about making crafty messes as I am about making breakfast.
- I want to be a cat.
