Fatty

I LOVE me some tasty food. Even though I can only eat a cup of it at a time, but WHATEVER.

Because I can only eat wee little doll sized amounts of food, I try to make sure that what I'm eating is not just tasty, but also meets my nutritional needs. HA! I just said that! I'm seriously cracking myself up over here, because I? HATE healthy foods. Healthy foods taste like crap. That's why they're healthy, they're bereft of the things that makes food yummy. Things like fat. Mmmmm fat. Meat covered in cheese and a side of melted butter and washed down with an ice cream shake. That's what I'm talking about.

In an effort to find foods that are both good and not going to make me whip out the plastic grocery sack from my purse and um...return my lunch, let's call it...I've started to pay better attention to the labels. And that? BORING.

You know what's not boring? Being shocked. That's why I love those Eat This, Not That books. HOLY CATS, people. You wouldn't believe the hidden calories in things! It's astounding. No WONDER we're all straining our buttons. Except certain sisters of mine, who will remain nameless but who wears a size 8. But the rest of us? Oy.

However, I'm far too lazy to spend an afternoon reading about things I love and why they're going to kill me. So instead, I susbscribed to their email news letter so that I can be horrified in daily bite sized doses.

Seriously, if you've never checked out this information you totally should. While eating a Krispy Kreme and drinking a Frappacino. Obviously.

my fav fast food burger is Burger King, but I haven't eaten one since I saw some health show say how bad they are. Now I just drive by and lick their windows....

What?!? That article just recommended I eat at TACO BELL. Seriously. Its trying to tell me that TACO BELL is healthy.

The last time I ate there I needed a plastic baggie of my own.

I prefer living in the middle of that lovely river in Egypt. You know, Denial.

And BJ, I can't believe you're not a Whataburger fan. Oh so much better (not that I would know or anything)
