When Alex asks for Macaroni & Cheese…

I need to rant for a bit. sorry.

It is so beyond frustrating to come home from the gym to this…

The worst part is how frequently it magically appears at my house. It wouldn’t bother me if it this was a rare occassion. This ended up in the trash about two seconds after I discovered it. In the past week I have come home to KFC and an XXXXXXL Pizza or so it seemed. It was meant for an army not a family of 3 1/2. The 1/2 being Alex 🙂 Half the pizza is still sitting in the fridge and the KFC I found was discarded immediately. I can NOT stand wasting food, but prefer it there than in mine or Alex’s belly. I am going to be honest here. I used to eat this stuff like it was no big deal and don’t get me wrong I am still up for the occasional fast food stop like every few months, but it is absolutely not meant for regular or even semi- regular consumption. It certainly will not be in my household when I am on my own. I am over being so destructive to my body.  There is NO excuse for this stuff. Don’t go the economics route: my family can afford better food, and we I always have time to cook, and on top of that I make sure our fridge is always stocked with yummy food. Grrr I don’t want this junk around me or around Alex.

On a lighter note before going to the gym I asked Alex what he wanted for dinner and he said macaroni & cheese. No problem kiddo, you ask and you shall recieve.

Nutritional Yeast!!! This stuff is a full of B vitamins and is a complete protein. It is also delish on air popped popcorn 🙂

Tumeric gives it that yellow color.

So maybe this wasn’t what he had in mind entirely. He ate it anyway.

Half this post was negative so I am going to give some positives about having junk food in the house:

1. I no longer want it.

2. I can throw it away.

3. I can and do make Alex better food.

🙂

By the end of writing this I have come full circle and I’m now so beyond over it. It’s out of my control. I should just be grateful I am taking much better care of myself now.

the end.

How do you guys deal with frustrating situations?

Still casually obsessed with blueberries,

  1. YOU ROCK!!!! and so does you’re blueberry obsession (-:
    okay….. Ive never had mac’n’cheese before either… But yours actually look good. Does Alex want another sister? i would love to have a sister like you/private cook (:

    • Wait, whatttt???? You’ve never ever had macaroni and cheese before???? We will make you some. and no not my healthy kind well we can make that too, but the full fat 100% bad for you kind. The one you spend an extra year on the treadmill for, but is good to experience once in your life.
      Hehe I think he’ll appreciate it one day. Like tomorrow when I make his breakfast. It’s going to be awesome. You’ll see!!!
