I was watching Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution last night on television. I was outraged along with the twenty parents who showed up to view his “how much sugar is in flavored milk” demo. I wanted to try his “I know where this meat comes from” burgers at the fast food place. I was nervously anxious to find out if he will ever set foot in an LA school. “Let Jamie In!” I chanted in my head.
All of this was going on while I ate my way through half a box of Little Debbie snack cakes.
The chocolate and creamy ones that are rolled up like Ho-Ho knock-offs.
Talk about a disconnect.
Why is it that we can know something is not good for us and still take it in? Or, for that matter, know that something is GOOD for us and NOT choose to take it in? I was guilty of both last night. And will be again, I’m sure.
What do you do to keep yourself motivated about the right things? What helps you steer clear of those pesky temptations that we want out of our lives but we know are not good for us? I’ll answer my own question…if you throw the Little Debbies away then you won’t eat them.
OK. The box is empty now, anyway.
