The other day I went to the gym at lunch and grabbed some healthy food on the way back to my desk. Broccoli, cherry tomatoes, tofu, kidney beans, half a hard-boiled egg, and a wheat roll. Everything was so yummy that I picked at it as I walked, and it was gone by the time I got back to my desk.
Today I went running at lunch and grabbed the same healthy food on the way back to my desk. It's all gross. I ate the egg, half the broccoli, forgot to get cherry tomatoes, and can't quite force myself to eat the tofu and kidney beans. They taste so gross today. Why is that? Why did they taste so good the other day, but not today?
This is why I have a hard time eating enough veggies. If I want them, I scarf them down. If I don't want them, I can't even force myself to choke them down.
So I ate a yogurt parfait with strawberries instead. Not quite the same, but still better than the peanut M&Ms in the vending machine, right? (Maybe I'll grab some of those later...)
