My coffee-buddy coworkers occasionally laugh at me when I’ll decide to grab a donut at Timmies instead of a coffee. They laugh because, they say, I eat so healthy the rest of the time, it’s hard for them to reconcile that with the sight of me nibbling on a boston creme. This post sums up my feelings on the matter pretty well – in particular the sections titled “Eat perfectly all the time” and “The Four Laws of Junk Food Efficiency”. Yay for putting my intuitive thinking process into concrete terms!
As for the boston creme, I choose it over other donuts because it’s the most delicious, but it actually also happens to be one of their healthiest choices. Yes, nobody I tell this to believes me, but it’s true – go look on the nutritional chart! This is also my problem with eating desserts out at restaurants – most of the time I don’t, because I feel that, frankly, they often don’t measure up to something I could make myself, and if I do talk myself into getting one I’m more often than not left disappointed. And if I’m going to eat something full of sugar and fat, it better be damn irresistible!
