You are What You Eat
July 27, 2011
I once heard Dr. Oz say that it doesn’t matter what you eat, as long as you are making it (from scratch) yourself. His reasoning is that the unhealthy things we so love are not the easiest to make, therefore, you will make them less often and eat them less often.
Today I had a craving for Nachos (after reading this Blog where the author says she likes nachos… yah, that’s all it takes for me folks, what can I say… I’m easily persuaded). Due to a lack of self-control on my part, we don’t keep junk food in the house. We did, however have some small tortillas shells, ground beef, and shredded cheese.
At the advice of Dr. Oz, I decided to make my own nacho chips. I cut the tortillas into cute little chip shapes and fried them up, browned the chopped meat, and put them all together in a glorious nacho stack.
After devouring my salty, crunchy, pile of messy chips I must say I don’t like Dr. Oz. Who does he think he is telling me I can eat whatever I want? My stomach sorely disagrees. It isn’t used to anything deep fried and it doesn’t like me much right now. But then again… that was probably Dr. Oz’s evil plan to begin with.
