I find myself thinking about food a lot these days. I can't help it. I peer at the food labels, trying to decipher whether this food is nutritious enough to deem worthy of consumption. I do quick calculations in my head to see if the calorie count to food portion is reasonable. I enter my foods online to track what I eat.
There is one food I simply cannot refuse though : pizza.
There's just something about the saucy cheesy goodness. It almost doesn't matter what the toppings are - it will get eaten. I do pick off peppers and onions...thereby stripping the pizza of some vegetables.
I had pizza last week - a glorious buffalo chicken variety from my favorite local pizzeria. It's Boston style. I had Little Caesars this week. Not as thrilling, but still pizza. I wish I could eat pizza today.
A close second in the world of non-resistance is chocolate. I do adore it too, but I am able to abstain at least part of the time. It helps that I am trying to eat less sugar (sigh, I have sadly not kept up fully on the Year Without Refined Sugar. I don't know how I managed that 10 months once :)
I'm not sure what to do. The healthier versions of pizza (where you use little or no cheese, load it up with just veggies, etc) don't really appeal to me. I do believe I can still have pizza in my life. I let myself go out to eat once a week. But pizza is my kryptonite, and if it's there, I'll eat it.
What's a girl to do? Any ideas?
