i think that's something i've held on to as well. i ate out yesterday and made conscious decision to eat that brownie. and drink the wine. conscious.
but if i go out to eat now, i'm learning to make right choices. i didn't order the fried shrimp. i steered from the battered stuffs. and i'm glad. i realize that by eating foods not coated in breading that i have more room for the good foods. and i can actually taste the foods. if we go somewhere to eat and i want something, sure, i'll think about what's in it. and i'll make smart choices. but i can't stress about the cornstarch or thickening agent they may have used.
i just like my food with spices. can i make a spice crust...? lol
still reeling over how freakin' awesome that wine was. wowowowowowowo.
