September 11, 2007 – A Cabbie’s Diet
Haven’t been eating as well as I should lately… Most of what I eat comes from a gas station or the local 7-11. Food at 7-11 can be quite tasty, if you get it at the right time of day, when it is made fresh. Not so much at 11 p.m. The chicken wings are delicious when they are fresh, they would make George Foreman proud. Does he eat like that anymore? I know he came out with that grill of his, you know the one that drains all the fat and grease off. Seems like a waste. I’d suggest passing on the dipping sauce however. BBQ is ok, but the ranch has a funny aftertaste. It’s a little sour.
Same deal with the pizza, pretty good when it’s fresh. It’s not gourmet by any means, but you can’t beat it for a dollar. The cheese is extra stringy and juicy when it’s fresh. The crust fairly crunchy too, a little on the doughy side, but once again people, it’s a dollar.
Sometimes it’s just too busy to stop in and get something made hot and I end up getting a candy bar. I’m partial to candy with peanut butter in it. Something crunchy can be nice too. I don’t eat plain chocolate too often, unless it’s dark chocolate, which happens to be good for you, within reason. I think that the office workers took that literally. Perhaps they heard bacon, ice cream, and cake batter is good for you too, could they have been misinformed…?
But my major vice is energy drinks. I’m partial to Monster brand. The low carb ones, I don’t like all that sugar, and the potential for cavities. I learned my lesson after eating all of those little peppermints that you see at restaurants – you know the ones with the red and white swirls. I drink like 4 of these energy drinks a day. The 16 oz. ones! I may drink the Rockstar ones if they are on sale, but they have to be significantly cheaper, they aren’t all that good. Half the time they don’t even seem to give me energy, I actually feel more tired after drinking them sometimes. More than anything, I just like the taste.
On a sidenote today is September 11.
I hope everyone is able to take a moment and think about how our world was changed 6 years ago today and reflect upon things. And perhaps say thanks to a policeman, a firefighter, or an ordinary good Samaritan.
