My husband took me out to dinner the other day. Now they (kids, hubby) usually complain about taking me out because I'm so difficult to feed (all I want is healthy). But my two teens were off doing something on their own and so it was just hubby and I. We went to Outback. So we get the crab appetizer. Okay, usually I can't eat anything, but that was fantastic. I could have eaten the whole thing myself. Crab, avacado, wasabi vinagrette. Anyway, so I ordered steak and sweet potato fries. My steak was pretty good, despite being a grain fed monstrosity (have you heard of the steak glue they are using for large cuts and the candy they are feeding now?)
In comes the "warm from the oven" loaf of sugar/I mean bread that passes for an pre-appetizer. My husband proceeded to eat the entire loaf. And all the fried corn chips that were with the crab. And regular fries. And whipped cream covered ice cream over a brownie. And he complained of not feeling well.
And the next day he said, "I don't understand why I don't have any energy. I feel so gassed all the time."
The only thing that perturbed me was the fact they way over salted my meat (to get me to drink and eat more) and put sugar on my fries(as if sweet potatoes needed sugar). Ugh.
Where is the sous vide beef heart I have in the fridge? Just thinking of the carb explosion, I need to eat something healthy... my home pastured eggs and heart sounds good.
The eyes of all hope in thee, O Lord: and thou givest them meat in due season.
