Dare I say it, ” I used to be a very picky eater as a kid”. I bet some parents out there can relate. I basically grew up eating sandwiches. Some of our favorites would curl your toes.
- SPAM with diced pickles and mayo (on white bread naturally)
- Bologna and mustard (again, on white)
- Cheese Whiz (OMG, so processed)
My parents were not about to allow me to eat sandwiches for supper. Did your parents use this one on you, “We aren’t running a cafe you know? Naturally, I sat pouting through most suppers, sometimes in tears.
“I don’t want to eat those”: green peppers, brocoli, mushrooms, cauliflower, eggs, curled up pork chops, wieners, steak, milk, green beans, kidney beans, canned peas……you get the picture. The list was pretty extensive.

No wonder we were a skrawny bunch.
I mean, really how many sandwiches can one kid eat in a day? Truth be told, those days are long gone. Having reached middle age, it’s no longer as easy as it once was to stay slim or trim. That’s why, a few weeks back I made a commitment to return to Weight Watchers.
While you don’t REALLY have to give up anything, lets face it, you shouldn’t have peanut butter and toast at midnight. It has been a challenge. With Christmas around the corner, it’s bound to get tricky. What am I missing the most?
