"Marriage is based on established roles of compromise: the husband always admits to being wrong and the wife forgives him."

Literary utterances of best wishes to you this fine day. And, what makes this particular day a "fine" one? You, of course. You control your daily destiny and others only attempt to influence it.
A little something off of the beaten path today. A reflection of growing older and becoming more health conscious?
Then: My mother places a Little Debbie snack cake into my lunch box because she loved me.
Now: Tiffany places an apple in my lunch box because she loves me.
Then: I give "The Seed" table scraps as a treat.
Now: I give "The Seed" sliced carrot, cucumber and celery as a treat.
Now: Tiffany uses Pam non-stick cooking spray to fry me a veggie burger for dinner.
Then: To grab a quick bite to eat when running about I stop at McDonald's (Big Mac, large fries), Burger King (Whopper, large fries), Wendy's (Double Stack w/cheese, large fries, Frosty), Pizza Hut (pepperoni pizza, hand tossed crust), or Kentucky Fried Chicken (fried chicken, biscuit, mashed potato, gravy). Note: In these days there was no such thing as "KFC" because they sold only fried chicken.
Now: To grab a quick bite to eat when running about I stop at Firehouse Subs (medium Grilled Veggie sub, whole wheat, no mayo), Subway (Veggie Delite, whole wheat bun, no mayo/sauces), Burger King (BK Veggie Burger, no mayo), Wrap Planet (everything acceptable), Green Day Cafe (everything acceptable, substitute hummus for meat), or Papa Murphy's Pizza (veggie pizza, thin crust).
NOTE: It is with much regret (but many happy memories) that I must report that Wrap Planet is now out of business.
Then: Let's use commercial white bread!
Now: When available, sprouted grain bread. Otherwise, whole grain wheat bread (look at nutritional label).
Then: Potato chips, tortilla chips and crackers for snacking.
Now: Pickled veggies, hummus, baked whole grain chips (limited quantity), fresh fruit, and sliced veggies for snacking.
Of course, the above could simply be the rantings and ramblings of a really old person too. Never mind. Go on with your day. Thanks for visiting though!
