NHBPM Day 23: “Clean out your fridge or closet in written form. What’s in there? How does it reflect your personality?

I don’t want to.

GAH!  It’s so hard sometimes to write what you’re told to.

Probably also why I don’t do any paid gigs in blogging.

*shifty eyes*

My fridge (I just typed, “K7”. That is how ridiculously tired I am today after a hellaciously stressful week.) is pretty sparse, as we don’t have the gingers this weekend  and I’m nursing a brain that’s going to explode…

Jalapeno Pepper Jelly.  With cream cheese and Triscuits, makes for a yum-mo snack.

Something green I swore I’d eat.  Again.  And didn’t.  Again.

Berries.  Always have tons of berries.  I love to puree them and freeze them as a base for my protein smoothies.

Cheese.  Stocked to the sweet-cheeks because there was just a sale.  Must be golden cows out there or somethin’.

Orange juice.  For the smoothies.

Apples and oranges.

Broccoli and cauliflower.

Sensing a theme?


Brought up on a plain Jane palette.

Do you know how hard it is, being a Type 2 diabetic…having to take medication to control something I could, in fact, do by my damn self?

I eat about three different kinds of vegetables.

Most of the fruit, although a natural sugar, bump the blood glucose too high.

Back to the three different vegetables.

If I find new recipes online, I often forget to buy the stuff, or, more often than not, don’t know how to even pick the damn thing (push, squeeze, pull…what’s ripe?)

If I remember to buy the stuff, I forget to use the stuff.

Honestly. *shaking head*

I am my own worst enemy made even worse on days weeks like this where I swear the stress was SO unexpected it feels like the cosmos hit me upside the back of the head with a cosmic clue-by-four.

Today? I didn’t eat much of anything.  Couldn’t stomach it.

I collect recipes I know I’ll never use…but…just in case.

 My goal is to try harder.


I choose to try harder.

    OMG I understand this totally. Instead of the diabetes I’m a vegetarian and I don’t really like vegetables >_<

    I sort of wish my dad exposed me to more crazy stuff when I was younger, and not just grilled cheese on wonder bread. I can't eat whole wheat bread and the multi-grain is only just a bit better.

    And the collecting of recipes? my bookshelf is groaning under the weight of my cookbook collection. When I'm looking for a new recipe? forget the books, the internet to the rescue! *hangs head*

    Don't you have your meal planning calendar of doom? Maybe pick one day a week/month in which you will try something new. Oh and have something quick on hand in case is goes tits up. ;P
