Yesterday I was at my dentist's. I hadn't seen her for two years (not good, I know). She was very impressed by my weightloss (57 lbs), couldn't stop commenting on it and congratulating me. And then she said:
Oh, you young people (I'll be 35 in a month , but I don't think I look it) have good metabolisms - that is the secret. I am 60 and I have been abstaining from animal products for the past two months (you know, the religious fasting thing where you are not allowed to eat animal products) and haven't been able to lose my extra 20 lbs...

I've been keeping up with this pink slime business and now a recall on beef from Canada. Can you say local beef it's your friend?

On Saturday, ended up being "kidnapped" by a friend, and dragged to Tim Horton's. She bought herself one of those new fancy fruit drinks, so I had her buy me one too. (She kidnapped me, she needed to feed me.) You have a choice of with, or without fat-free yoghurt. I chose yogurt, just because. And then, I had a brain storm! They sell bagels, with butter! So I asked them if they could put some butter into my fruit drink. For fat, you know. Of course, they stare at me for a moment, ask me to repeat myself--"butter?"--I say, yes, butter. And then I say, "wait. is it REAL butter? You know, from cows?" They nod, check, nod again. "Yep, real butter." I say, "cool, stick it in." So they stick it in.
My friend, by this time, is chewing her lip bloody trying not to laugh at what she deems utter idiocy on my part ("who puts BUTTER in a FRUIT drink?!" "only me," I tell her.)
I get my buttery fruit drink and we leave. She tries it, deems it acceptable. It is, until I realize the butter is not actually mixed in.
See, it's a frozen drink, so when they dumped in the butter, it froze. And then clumped together along the sides, with a HUGE chunk of it at the bottom. So there I am, sucking up chunks and chewing them, and then I stick the straw in the huge chunk, pluck it from the straw, toss it in my mouth, and start chewing.
It sorta redeemed the ultra-sugar-dump I was voluntarily inflicting on my body.
Of course, it totally grosses out my friend. It was awesome!
Not the drink, but the butter in the drink.
