Today I went to my local Kroger for groceries and this is what I came home with.
What you see is low carb yogurt, Gouda cheese, Strawberries, unsweetened coconut, chia seeds, flax meal and cage free- grain fed eggs. What you don’t see is another item that I hid in my buggy so that others couldn’t see. I was on the phone with my sister, Donna and she was giving me suggestions on how to get this scandalous item through the store and through the check out line without anyone spotting this item in my cart. What is this hypocritical item you ask?
Well this is the conversation that I had with my grandson, Caleb last Saturday morning after he spent the night. I normally have no problem getting him to eat my healthy food but for some reason he suddenly didn’t want to that morning. This is our conversation.
Me: What do you want for breakfast? I have sausage and eggs, french toast (using low carb bread and sugar free syrup), bacon and eggs with cinnamon toast?
Caleb: No. Lets go to McDonalds.
Me: No we can’t go to McDonalds for breakfast. What would you like for me to make you this morning?
Caleb: Do you have Fruit Loops?
Me: No. I have sausage and eggs, french toast, bacon and eggs with cinnamon toast. Which would you like for breakfast?
Caleb: Can we go to McDonalds?
Me: No. Not today.
Caleb: Do you have any of those things that are on a stick and it is pancake on the outside and sausage in the middle? I LOVE those!!
Me: No I don’t have those but I promise to get them for here and you can have those the next time that you come to my house. But for this morning you have to have something here.
Caleb: What did you have for breakfast?
Me: I had a hot cereal with strawberries in it.
Caleb: I will have that today but do you promise to have the pancakes on a stick with the sausage in the middle for next time?
Me: I promise.
And he got up and had the hot cereal with strawberries. Today this horrible unhealthy item ended up in my grocery cart because in a moment of weakness I caved and made a promise to an adorable 5 year old that has stolen my heart.
I should be flogged publicly!!! hahaha
