|No more glasses of this for awhile...|
|Or any of these...|
As is my custom, I had no problem feasting on Original Field Roast Grain Meat Company Apple Sage Sausage, homemade pancakes (from VwaV) with maple syrup, and tofu scramble (freestyle, lots of curry powder) with fresh pico de gallo and avocado cubes and spinach, along with a couple of homemade Hurricanes (orange juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, white rum, spiced rum, amaretto, strawberry syrup, angostura bitters) on Fat Tuesday. (Sorry, I was festive without a camera.)
But then, I had to face the yearly dilemna: What to give up.
I'm never very good at this. I've tried unsuccessfully to give up sugar for 40 days oh...enough times to make me want to bake a batch of cupcakes to forget. In fact, I don't think I've ever once been able to give up anything for Lent and make it all the way to Easter. Not a very good track record, I guess, looking back on it.
Every year, however, my health habits have gotten a little bit better. That's why, this year, I've decided to try giving cane sugar and alcohol the boot. For 40 days. Until Easter.
|DEFINITELY no more of these...|
It's only going to feel like it.
|Not even any of these...sigh...|
So here is my pep talk to myself:
"I can do it! Go Hungry Yogi! You don't need no stinkin' sugar. And the next time you cook something good, take a darned picture!"
