Crack Food

I am fully convinced that some foods are laced with crack. You know, the ones that you can’t.stop.eating. Not favorite foods per se, but delicious, orgasmic morsels of goodness that you can’t explain why you like.

Until now. Crack.

Every now and then, I come across a food that is just too good to put down. And by put down, I mean take my hands off it long enough to breathe properly between bites. Because I’m at my peak week of training  for my 50-miler next month, I’m hungry 24/7 and found this to be an appropriate outlet to discuss my eating habits. So I made a list of all the things I can eat all day, for the rest of my life, like the addict that I’ve become because of the crack. Here’s what I’ve come up with:

Jimmy John’s bread—Helloooooo 25-cent loaf!

Carbs – why I don’t have a six pack

Steamed Chinese rice—Try having one serving – I dare you

Stouffer’s, I think you meant to say “Tanya Size”

SeltzerWater. With bubbles. So simple, yet so delicious.

NOT fake-flavored or sweet. It has to be pure – natural flavoring only.

SushiWhat’s that added flavor to the sticky rice? Cocaine? Sounds about right.

Little sis and I take sushi eating very seriously

    Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Justin and I make at least one batch per week, and all cookies are ingested in 24 hours or less.

    Where the heck is the chocolate? Those damn Hershey’s Nuggets of solid milk chocolate are my complete downfall. I keep them in the refrigerator and every doggone time I go to get something healthy from the fridge, there they are, and there they go! My other complete helpless addiction, though not that unhealthy, is cheese sticks. I mean, four at a time is a little excessive, don’t you think? Gotta have ’em.

      You know, Al, I’m not a chocolate person. Or any sweets, for that matter. I can handle them in tiny increments, but that’s about it. The chocolate is all yours!

      What kind of cheese sticks? String cheese? Do you pull it before you eat it, or just take bites? Because I’m pretty sure that’s not allowed…

    Agree with all of these minus the seltzer water. Never ever been able to handle it, but my husband LOVES it! Maybe he just learned to love it because he knew I wouldn’t steal it. Kind of like my dad and Pepsi products. And Hardee’s burgers definitely are laced with crack!

      Oh Lisa, you’re missing out!! I’m pretty sure my blood is filled with tiny carbonated seltzer bubbles.

      …I’ve never had a Hardee’s burger. Are they that good? Or are they I-question-your-judgement good, like Milo’s or Krispy Kreme?

    For me, it is most definitely popcorn! I can never put it down, I love it!!! I think that’s probably why I love going to the movies so much. I have a Whirley Popper at home just for my addiction. And if it didn’t get me drunk, I could drink wine all day everyday. It’s definitely laced with crack and I adore it! I think I need to move to Italy=)

      Womp – no healthy food here this time! I forgot about chips and salsa! They’re delicious too! And I can put away some peanut butter M&Ms, though the crunchy ones were my favorite…
