Lisa Dale: For love of junk!

Sometimes, I’m a little bit of a health nut, especially about food. I eat lots of salads, try to avoid anything heavily processed or instant, and mostly, I just try to go by the motto “if I can’t pronounce it, I don’t eat it.”

But…there are exceptions!

When I was in my early twenties, and I was at my then boyfriend’s (now fiance’s) parent’s house, I saw they had peanut butter chocolate puff cereal. I remember giving him a hard time about it.

“Don’t eat stuff like that!” I said. “At least, not regularly! And especially not for breakfast! It’s fake chocolate and fake peanuts…it’s toxic and gross!”

Matt did his usual patient thing of rolling his eyes and kissing me on the forehead.

Days passed, and I was at his parent’s house and got very hungry. The only thing to eat was this chocolate peanut butter cereal. So, I dove in. And it was like pearly gates of heaven opened. It was seriously the most delicious, terrible, wonderful cereal I’d ever eaten in my life.

So last week, fueled by PMS, I bought myself a box—which I haven’t done in a while. Talk about love! And Matt still teases me: “Remember when you gave ME such a hard time about that cereal?”

Next week, I’ll go back to my wheat bran and flax seed “oatmeal.” But this week…I’m tearing through the chocolate for breakfast.

What’s your go-to junk food?

Happy eating!

I try to eat healthilym, too. The potato chip regularly defeats me.

Besides all the tidbits that help
make me comfortable, my main go-to
food is just plain ole vanilla ice
cream! I have found that I can get
by without the others, just don't
take away my Blue Bell Homemade

My junk food?

Chocolate! It's not junk, is it?
and ice-cream.

Ah..junk food! Love it! I have lots of favorites but I would have to say that I love something crunchy. So with that in mind, the good ole' Jays Rippled Potato Chips are the best! It reminds me of the days when I was a teenager and went to the beach. We always took with us Jays rippled potato chips. Sand, sun and potato chips, with a bit of sand in your mouth. Yum!
