Now that I’m to letter Q in the A to Z Challenge, I may be reaching a bit for my daily posts. There’s been a whole lot of quantity, and I hope some quality mixed in there too. I’ll admit that as an avid reader of young adult distopian novels I wanted to work “quarter quell” into my post (which I just did!). Like I said, I’m reaching a bit.
When faced with a choice between quality and quantity, quality always sounds like the best way to go. It seems to be en vogue to pick the full day cheese and a square of dark chocolate over the pint of fat free frozen yogurt. I completely agree with this strategy 90% of the time, but there are days when I want a lot of something. There are diets designed around this feeling (Volumetrics is one).
The problem is that I don’t tend to crave a giant bowl of iceberg lettuce. Usually, I want all the meat, pasta, cream cheese, and ganache. So, what’s a girl to do? I guess the main thing is trusting myself to indulge occasionally. The important things are what you do most of the time, so a big plate of pasta won’t affect much. The next thing is reminding myself that there are a ton of delicious, flavorful options that are also low calorie. I guess I need more time on Pinterest.
