I like the foods on my eating plan, I really do. But one of the reasons why I have a hard time with consistency in eating is that I get bored very easily. I would consider myself a foodie if I had the money. I just adore food. I crave intense flavor regularly - something that will make my mind work while I'm eating. I think about the combination of spices and base ingredients, the textures, the symphony of it all.
Maybe that's why I liked Ratatouille so much.
There are a number of cereals out there that meet the criteria, thankfully, which means that I can choose between 4 or 5 that I do actually like. It's difficult for me to keep eating though once I'm done with a bowl of cereal, and Dan has asked me to eat an egg or some other protein for breakfast every day. Says it's important to get protein with every meal.
And even though I do have some variety (egg, tuna, cheese stick), and even though I like the options, I'm getting bored.
How is it that having a pretty good variety of foods to choose from - all of which I do like - I still have to talk myself out of cheating?
Eating good food can be expensive. Maybe that's why I don't feel like I'm being cheated. I get Sun Chips and Triscuits (the fire-roasted tomato flavor is insanely good), really yummy spices, Skinny Cow desserts, good yogurt, etc. I shouldn't be bored. This kind of food shouldn't get old.
