April Diet Quality Card

april diet card

So this is how the base white diet adds up on the card, really not so bad. I'll switch up at some point from white to whole wheat bread and from white to brown rice again, so no worries there. And maybe when I do that, I'll switch up the blueberry muffin for a bagel. I know technically a blueberry muffin is a baked good. But it's so sweet, it's basically cake to me; so I count it as a sugary sweet.

But you know that the stuff neatly in boxes isn't my whole diet, just the regular rotation. I try to keep this as high quality as possible, being that this is what I eat the most of, and maybe more importantly, what I eat without thinking about. So I can rely on, say, eighty percent of my diet being fairly to pretty virtuous, and relax about the other twenty percent. I don't want you to think that you could never live up to this diet card. Because you probably weren't double fisting an ice cream sandwich and a Hostess apple pie Tuesday night. What. It's called a la mode.

There is a difference, though, between getting a diabolical notion about an ice cream sandwich and a Hostess apple pie and having coffee and a blueberry muffin for breakfast twice a week. The coffee and the muffin are a not particularly good habit. A diabolical notion only strikes you now and again, and even then sometimes you indulge and sometimes you don't.

Honestly now that I'm thinking, I can't think how it could have taken me this long to think of eating an ice cream sandwich and a Hostess apple pie at the same time...
