Food and Politics

Last night after binging on cookies, bread, pasta, and wine while watching the race to the White House; the realization that I have to get back on track is ever so real. I can feel it again and I sure don’t want to weigh myself right now.

Does eating plant-based foods keep us thin? Not really. One thing does hold true though – all I have to think about is to just continue eating. The good news is that I’m no longer thinking of what I can or cannot eat and what I should avoid anymore. I just need to go back to the foods that I enjoy.

The election has brought on enough stress to keep me planted on the couch with wine, ice cream and gluten free cookies. However, now that the stress has gone and the reality sets in, I’m finding my way back on track.

I’m so glad this isn’t a chore. It’s not anything painful. The only part that would be painful is the temptation brought on by stress that induces the need for sugar and oily foods. 

However, once I get a handle on my stress, I can breathe a sigh of relief and figure out how to serve potatoes tonight.

What am I chopping up tonight?
