Why can't vegetables taste good to me? Why was I not blessed with the palate of a Top Chef so I could enjoy what the produce aisle has to offer me?


This week I decided it was time to get back on track to being a healthier person, a blog that I follow, Bits & Pieces called for a challenge to 'move more and eat less.' Easier said than done. For 2 days now I have done my best to make healthier decisions and I feel like I am starving myself when in all reality I am eating a very reasonable 1500 calories a day with no added activity because of my RA (yep, still giving me trouble.)

I. Love. Food. I want to be eating all the time. Today, I didn't even have a soda for lunch! I 'saved' it for dinner and it was was like having dessert before the meal.

I know I will feel better eventually and the road will get easier but for now I am just waiting for the hunger pangs to subside and padlocking my refrigerator.

  1. I hear ya! I also wish that vegetables tasted better to me. Every once in a while I'll try one again thinking "maybe my palate has changed"-- and sadly it hasn't.

    Good for you for making the decision to cut back on soda!

  2. I try lettuce at least twice a year thinking, "this is it!" But sadly no, the vegetables me no likey.
