I married well, part 1,658. Also, let's talk about food.

After my little diatribe about Double Stuf Oreos, I managed to work said cookies into every conversation for the rest of the day.

And lookit what my sweet husband brought me!
I'm not sure if he bought them to be nice or get me to shut up already. And I don't care. Also, he gets extra points for buying said cookies on his way to the gym ... and then going to the gym instead of just eating all the cookies in his car.

He's a good man. A strong man.

All of the blog comments about guilty snacking pleasures were really inspiring. So inspiring, that on Saturday, I ate a pork tenderloin sandwich, pizza, about 800 Oreos, and a bunch of chips.

Guess who felt like poop on a stick on Sunday? Ugh. That's the horrible thing about eating carefully - when you fall off the wagon, you kind of want to die. But at least it proves that you're doing something right the other 98% of the time.

Trixie asked for suggestions for sites about clean eating. I have a few that have been helpful:
However, I do feel the need to point out that the term "clean eating" always makes me think of eating Noxema out of the jar. With a spoon. Yuck.

I prefer to think of it as "not eating shit in boxes." Because really, if you cut out food that comes in boxes, you'll be in good shape. But I guess "clean eating" is more succinct and less pottymouthtastic.

Lest you think I'm all Little Miss Nutrition, I will point out that I had a fantastic holiday weekend. Yes, this means that all the Oreos are gone. Gone, gone, gone.

Clean eating has been on my to do list for a month now. I'm kinda lazy when it comes to cooking so I pretty much just moan about being fat and wishing that I had someone to cook for me so I could eat clean.

I feel great when not eating from boxes... except for those cravings and the sugar-addiction headaches.

YOu have a good husband. And there's no shame in the occasional processed treat.

All this Oreo talk led me to get a small pack of them out of the vending machine at work. Then I met my new boss and I'm pretty sure I had some Oreo dust in my teeth. Yay me!

I've been making a serious effort to bring my lunch to work and I feel a lot better because of it. I still eat a few foods from boxes here and there, but not as much as I used to.

MyGuy is a good egg. No guilt aboutthe Oreos got it? I reward myself once a week with something good.

For clean eating sites that proceed all the way to vegan, I like:
Forks Over Knives - Great recipes on their blog.
Thug Kitchen - Healthy recipes mixed with copious profanity. It's as if they had me in mind when the site was created.
