    So I ate a box of Mac 'n Cheese

    This is what happened:

    Two nights ago I was just in a really rotten mood for no reason in particular. I didn't want to cook and just felt generally contrary. So I grabbed a box of Mac 'n Cheese at the store and made that for dinner.

    - It was a LOT saltier than I remember it being. That used to be me one go-to comfort food when I was feeling gross, I remember it being creamy and mild and soft. Now though? Salty and mushy were my main impressions.
    - I couldn't finish the whole box. I used to eat a whole box no problem and still be kinda hungry for more, I only ate half of it and was more than done.
    - Next day looooots of gas.
    - Heartburn came back!
    - Next evening the system was evacuated (not pleasant)
    - Return of hypnagogia night terrors! D: (for some reason it's always massive spiders hanging above my head reaching to get me)

    Most important thing though
    -> The next morning I had bacon and eggs for breakfast, that evening was primal curry.

    Basically, yeah, I was feeling like crap and said "screw it" and had something absolutely wretched for me for dinner one night. the very next day though I went right back to eating primal.

    Primal is my norm, everything else is an aberration

    I used to eat that stuff ALL THE TIME. From the age of 18 to 28 I would say that I probably ate more Kraft Mac and Cheese than any other single meal. At least twice a week for dinner.

    I have not had any in over a year now. I wonder if it would gross me out too now.

    it is funny how that happens! I had a few sips of diet coke and it taste like gasoline or something to me! gross...i dumped it out.
    I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

    wow. i used to really luv me some mac n cheese. I couldn't even throw out the last 2 boxes i had in the pantry. But the first post sorta makes me want to!

    last week on vacation i had an occasional flour tortilla, sushi & i ate the rice, 2 nights of indian food (w/ some rice & naan), and a few potato chips. Maybe some other stuff i don't usu eat. It def kinda messed up my system! I'm only today really feeling good like i did before vacation.

    Mom made some good ol' oven baked mac 'n' cheese when I was home to visit.

    It was awesome. I ate two big bowls.

    That is all.


    PS. I also didn't post a thread about it.

    homemade has got to be a lot better than the box stuff. However, i used to "doctor" mine up so much with jalapenos and sometimes salsa, def a drop or two of pepper sauce, i couldn't really tell how salty it was.
