In looking through a 2017 calendar with healthy recipes featured each month I thought to myself “I’d rather be fat if eating if this is what it takes to lose weight”. Now, I am known for my adventurous tastes in food. I’ll try most anything once. I’ve met few foods I wouldn’t eat (like maybe 2 in my life). These recipes sound so bizarre I cannot even imaging trying them. It does seem we only have two choices: gain weight or eat dirt. I have struggled to maintain my weight since puberty. I am not overweight but I have been. If I don’t carefully watch my eating habits my weight just climbs and climbs. Once I decided to see what my “natural” weight would be if I just ate “normally”. I finally had to stop after gaining 50 pounds. At any rate, these dishes may taste divine. I just can’t bring myself to cook them.
