Day 37- Finish Your Plate



Was that your first cognitive memory of eating at the table? Me, too. Must have heard that one a thousand times. I was a baby-boomer and you would have thought that I grew up in the Great Depression. Don’t let that go to waste, there are kids in China, over and over again. It was my first bad eating habit.

Musgo, there was another one. Everything in the refrigerator Must Go! Generally the night before the trash went out, all leftovers regardless of mark or pedigree got thrown on the stove and then on our plates. Very slimming for the frigidaire, for us, not so much.

Sammich! The Devil between slices of bread. Super processed, ultrarefined, bleached even, white bread with three of the most unnatural (food?) items ever conceived: bologna, american cheese and Miracle Whip. My favorite sandwich ever, the double decker with double cheese. Weighing in at a whopping 944 calories, over 600 from fat, Ronald McDonald would have been in awe. And I would eat 2 of these obscenities without batting an eye.

Breaking bad habits and replacing them with new, better habits will eventually lead to better health. It’s working for me.
